A lot of what type of rifle is used has to do withthe area you hunt. I hunt the northeast with hills and woods. So my choice is a levergun, usually in 30-30 with a 2-7 Leupold setting on top. My furthest shot will normally be under 150 yds.

Wow, lots of factors in that one. Like how much you want to spend, how a certain gun feels to you, what your purpose is and how you think it looks.

I personally like Savage guns, but if money was no concern there are others I would try. I am pretty fond of Browings, but there are probably better for as much money.

I like the Savage line myself. Tikka is pretty good too. Really depends on what our personal preference is
