Great choice with the Savage. Have two in .270 and they're great for deer.

I don't think you'll be disappointed.

My son gets the same option from D's sporting goods. Browning would be the prime pick from your list.

Of course. It will make a mess of the hide though.

Remington Model 7 in .308. Nice and handy, accurate, light enough for hiking with it. All around nice rifle.

Same thing, you'll mangle it pretty bad. If you want a gun that will be good for coyotes and deer then you might want to look at a 243. It uses the same case as the 308 except it uses a 6mm bullet instead of 7.62mm.

Most people wouldn't recommend it. That being said, in Washington you can legally hunt any big game with a .243. This includes bear, elk and moose.

Personal opinion here, I'd go with the Savage 111. I've used mine quite successfully this past season.

That's my $.02 worth on this subject.
