Although I'm primarily a bowhunter in recent years, when rifle hunting I use a Browning A-bolt in 30-06. My son has the same rifle in 7mm-08.
Once in a while I'm partial to the lever guns in 30-30 and .35 remington. Just kind of like carrying them around I guess.
I use my Rem 700 in .308 for deer size creatures but my favorite is my Rem sendero SF in 300 RUM that I will use for moose, bear, and probably deer as well. I have not hunted with it yet but the range sessions are unbelievable.

I have a heavy "Hart" barrel 700 in 6mm and love it. What a calibre! I have a 220 swift in the same config. and love that as well but the 6mm is an outstanding round for coyotes(the 220 swift is no push-over either)
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
