I recently inhereted a 100acre property, just north or Hanover ontario, for a few years I've considered getting my deer license and now I've finally decided to get it.
The first question is a rifle, the area is mostly mixed forest with some parts only hardwood, some swampy are with cedars and some clearings and a creek, also the from 15 acres are grain field, so probably no shots much over 100 yards. I was thinking of the remington 710 or maybe the remington 700ADL and I'm undecided on the calibre. My neighbour up there uses a browning .270, but I think I'm looking for something cheaper. Right now I have a couple .22 LR which came with the property so I'm not entirely new to guns.
I'm also wondering about the effort involved in dragging a deer out of the bush (or to a trail). I'm considering a few spots to buils a stand, and I want to make sure I'm not in over my head dragging a deer out.
Those are all the questions for now but I'm sure there will be many more before the season rolls around
Thanks for all the help
