What kind of gun do you all use when you deer hunt?
I started out with my dad's 12 gauge shotgun. It is a Western Field...a knock off of a Mossberg 500. It's piled up allot of deer for my dad and I over the years. I have also hunted deer with a handgun in .357 magnum and .44 magnum. Now that my dad is in his mid 70's and we do allot of sitting I use a Thompson Center Encore 50 cal muzzleloader. I like it the best of all for 2 reasons. Number one....No safety. That always keeps me thinking. I feel that a safety gives me a false sense of security. If I want to shoot it, I have to cock it. Number two...I have one shot and I'd better make it count.
I have a Remington 700 ADL, 30.06, and a Rem 7600 .308, also I got a Rem 740 Woodmaster, 30.06. I've hunted with my Rem 870, 12 ga too but I missed once so I quit using it. I've killed ducks and rabbits with it plenty.

I use a 270 rem.bdl, I shot a lot of deer, elk with it, I know a gent that uses an243. and he always fills his tags. he says to use a gun that you are comfortable with and it depends on what you are hunting in whether its open, brushy,and so on but he says the most important thing is to make a kill shot the first shot, and shoot your gun alot to know how it shoots, drops ,ect. practice ,practice, practice

If Im hunting down in the brushy bottoms I use my trusty model 94 30-30. If I am hunting out of some of my other blinds I use a mod 700 in 30-06. I shot a PSE during bow season. All have harvested there fair share of game.
