I own a couple in that caliber and use them all the time as my "go to" rifle as well. Hard to beat....
I use other calibers occationally just to blow the dust off of them, but always go back to the same old favorite in 30-06.
I do have to admit that the 7mm-08 we have is a sweet shooter too though, and is putting the heat on my -06, ha ha.
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...
