There's a few more in the safe but when I head out for meat these are the boys that usually go with me.

Now, if I had brought up my oldest daughter right (as in being left handed) I'd have to take over control of her Remington Model 7 .260 & add it to the list also. Bolt's on the wrong side though so I guess she can keep it. Great rifle though & personally think the .260 is one of the best overlooked calibers out there.
I have several battle rifles and target rifles in my collection. The hunting rifle I'm using right now is a carbine I build last summer. It's a Stevens action with a E.R. Shaw 20" sporter barrel chambered in .300 Savage. I put a Sharp Shooter Supply laminated wood hunter stock in rust camo and had all the metal Dura-Coated. I topped it off with a Weaver 4X scope.
Here in Pa. I use a Accumark in 300 Weatherby for field hunting and a 1895 Guide gun in 45-70 for driving or still hunting. A 700 VS in .223 for groundhogs. Hopefully the 300 will be going mule deer hunting next year in Wyoming. Good luck hunting. PaLuke
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
