ORIGINAL: OntElk

Killed all my deer except 2 with the same rifle. .30-.30 has probably killed more deer than any other over the years. Have bigger for bear/moose but my lever I love for the deer hunt.

Good job!
You're are correct OntElk! The .30-30 and the .303 have killed more deer in
the US, Canada and Africa, than any other caliber.

another neet thing about last years hunting was that when my daughter got her deer she was the first in my family (immediate or extended) to ever get a deer. Then when my dad (her grandfather) came in on thanksgiving he went hunting with us. He sat there in the hail and freezing rain watching her hunt and then saw her pass up a deer at about 65 yards because she was uncomfortable with the quartering angle. My dad was amazed that she had that kind of patience and respect for the animal. Although he froze, he can not stop talking (as can't I apparently) about hunting with his grandaughgter

Thanks WTD
We are looking forward to the coming season. Hopefully last years success was not a fluke. We would like to take one each by bow and gun if possible. Not sure I can get that lucky on the public land we hunt though. Either way we will try

My .30-.30 have taken sooo many whitetails that I seriously can't count them. It has been handed down to me and every deer I shot went right down or a very short distance. Took my first Black bear with a .30-.30 and it dropped in it's tracks.
