Hello all:

I usually ask this every year, but what rifle are you going to use to hunt this year? It can be more than one, and for any kind of hunt. The only caveat is that you include pictures of the rifle or rifles. I am undecided right now but should have something figured out in the next few days. Once I do, I’ll provide pictures as well. Looking forward to see what everyone’s gonna be using. Hopefully we will see them again on this years Kill Page.

If you want to do your shotgun, show that as well.

Still undecided on this one Ras. Thought about using my 303SRC but i just picked up a 30-30T at the Rendezvous. Also thought about me and the boys going all 300’s. Decisions Decisions.

I will be taking my 99 F in 300 Savage along to the Catskills in November. It has an old 2-1/2x Weaver on top. The old scope looks right on that old Savage from the first year of "F" manufacture.

I bought the rifle from a 94 year old friend who bought it new. He took his biggest buck with it.

The 99F in 300 Sav goes every November. The 1899C in 303 Sav is this year's back up. Circa 1900.

The 9478 in 20 ga is the only shotgun I carry in the turkey woods.

The plan is to start with Randy’s 1919 250. Then my old friend, 7X57Steve’s, Ruger #3 in 25-35. All plans subject to change without further notice.

You can tell a lot about these types of threads. Every year it seems that the later F model seems to be the favorite. Not by a big amount, but the favorite. The EG is up there to, but there are thousands of them. Nothing against the EG, I am leaning on either a Pre War checkered EG in 300 or a Salesman Sample in 303. My 99C in 284 is always in the running.

If I go for a third deer with a rifle that moves the 1928 K into the rotation.

Anything with 284 in the title is a good choice.

I plan to take the 1956 99F 300. It has not been in the stand yet (at least not with me). It has a Weaver KV with post reticle on Weaver tip-off mount. If if wind dies down and does not rain, I plan to zero the scope and open sights later today.
