I have several different deer tags this season so I’ll be using:
1) .250-3000 custom Kurz Mauser 98
2) .32-40 Savage 99B
3) 9.3X57 Husqvarna 46
4) 7.62X39 Zastava mini Mauser
5) .257 AI custom Mauser 98
6) .270 Winchester Remington 700BDL
7) .50 caliber Hawken custom patched roundball

Bear (Black) may be thrown in there so maybe a .358 Winchester - 7600 Remington or Ruger 77.

....and who knows what else might get drug out😄

A small patch of woods that I hunt most of the time, I'll be using my 243 LBC in an AR-15.

If I go to my buddy's farm it will be a Weatherby Sub MOA in 270 WSM.

AZ Antelope (already successfully over): Mauser 25-06, the rifle with which I killed my first antelope in 1991. Brought it out for another try this year.
AZ Cow Elk (next week): Savage 99 .358 Win
Montana Mule Deer: Mauser 338-06
Montana Antlerless Whitetail: Either the same 338-06 or the M99 .358 if I don't kill an elk with it next week.

Cheers,
Rex

The boy will be bringing home dinner with his 700 youth, 7-08 In a McMillan edge, timney and Zeiss 3x-9x, a gun I'd have killed for at his age (14)
I'll be shooting a Knight original disc .50 w/ a USA burris FF
3x-9x early and a Colt/melvinized light rifle in .30-06 in rifle season.

I am taking my win 94 30-30, with open sights, to Eastern Washington this year for mule deer hunting.

Lots of people think that most of the deer “East of the mountains are killed by long range experts at 500-plus-yards or so”.

Actually, most of the deer are harvested within 200 yards, just like everywhere else.

I won’t be under-gunned in most conditions.

Thought my Sako FN Mauser in 300 H&H needed a workout but a mini stroke put next weeks hunt on the back burner. Have another late Oct tag and I'll give it a go then.

I have only one rifle tag this year, an "Any Deer" tag in Butte County. It's a good tag.
I'll use one of the following, depending on my mood and the weather.
Kimber Montana 7WSM with 145 LRX at 3170
CA Mesa 6.5 PRC with 142 ABLR at 3070
Kimber Classic Select 280 AI, load to be determined.

My .30-30 always gets the starting spot.

2nd in line is a 6.5 PRC.

1. FN-98 custom 275 Rigby for moose hunt and later deer hunting.
2. M700 custom 280 Remington for above backup and crappy weather.
3. M700 custom 257 Roberts for old time sake.

I plan on buying an over the counter doe tag for Montana and perhaps an elk tag. I want to try the 6.5-300 but might just take my new Tikka 243.

I'm only deer hunting this year so lead off rifle is the 7mm rem mag. Batting next is a 6.8 spc AR I built for my son and a 7.62x39 CZ.

I'll start out with the Fieldcraft 6.5 Sweed that my late wife gave me a couple of years ago for my 50th birthday. I haven't been able to hunt much since then, so it's not been blooded. I just had the stock shortened by Alex at Master Class and it's supposed to be here Tuesday. That will make it "perfect".

Next will be the Howa Stainless 6.5 Creedmoor in an Alpine stock.

If I kill something with both of these, I'll bring out the late wife's Kimber .243 and try to kill one for her.
