Well my preference is my Browning Ambush which I never got a shot with this season (yet). Next would be my Knight Wolverine 50 cal. BP, then my model 94 30-30, 180 grain corloks, then last but not least my Winchester Ranger 12 gauge with either slugs or double aught buck (what I killed my buck with this year). It all depends on the season and where I am hunting as to what weapon is my favorite.

A Rem 700 ADL .30-06 would be my first choice. I'm looking forward to bowhunting, but I need more field experience and more bow practice.

My Browning A-Bolt Varmit 22-250 with 24" bull barrel or my Ruger77 22 Hornet.

Unfortunately we can't bow hunt on my lease. If we could, I would rather use a bow.

Two big does. I don't shoot Bucks. First was with 257 Roberts 100 grain Barnes X bullet. The second was with my NEF 280. 120 grain Sierra pro-hunter bullet. First one 150-160 yards the second 200+ yards. Both went down in thier tracks.
I just got a new 260 Ruger all weather rifle and my son sold me his 308 Browning composite stalker. Also NIB. Can't wait for next year.

Hntngirl. Do you reload for your 243? If so whats your load?
