I want to take a poll, what do you guys think is the best deer hunting rifle. Choosing by calibur, accuracy, and most importantly where your hunting, how far shots your gonna get. I love the gun i use its a Marlin 336 model bolt action 30/30 with a gold ring louepold scope on it with 2-7 ajustment its pefect for where i hunt im not gonna get a shot more that 100 yards. I have a draw that goes back 50 yards to my left and in front of me i have a creek and behind that i have a grass field im in a tree line and to the right of me I have a hill leading right down to my stand I love it. We've harvested two nice buck from that stand had a miss fire with a black powder on another:wallbash: and shot a maybe ten point but one side of the rack was messed up.
