870 with slugs. it was all i had at the time.

next year a moisin nagant with soft points. a mil surp rifle i picked up for cheap.

next year a new savage .308. an upgrade from the moisin.

next year a knight .45 inline. let me hunt deer in sept before archery.

now i use the ml and the .308 during ml and rifle season.

I prefer bow hunting. If I can't bow hunt, I use a Rem. 700 ML for black powder and a savage 110fp .308 for rifle season.

Using the Rem. 700 ML is just like using a rifle. 200yds and it's dead.
I love my .308. It is the best shooting gun I have ever owned.

Remington 870 Wingmaster w/ rifled slugs and a Remington 700 ADL .30-06. I use them because they kill deer dead.

Remington model 700 ADL. Accurate, durable, not expensive, confidence, looks cool :-)

i use a sprngfld 30-06. because they are a common gun. plus if i want to use them for other stuff i can. like put in small loads for varmet, or put in heavier for bigger game such as moose, elk, ect... if i need too. but most of all when i hit the deer in the right spot they drop dead. i have used smaller gun such as a 243 and no offence aginst them prob buy one cuz they are fun to shoot, but i shot 2 deer with one and both of em ran and layed down and died. both chest shots. but my deer this year at 250 yrds shot one time was dead as soon as i pulled the trigger. but i like 243's too so dont get me wrong bout that. but thats y i like my 30-06
