I live in a shotgun only zone, so I use a Remington 870 with a 24" Hastings Barrel, and a 3x9 Bushnell scope for deer.  Turkey and geese, I just switch choke tubes on my other 870, with a 3" chamber, 28" barrel with Remchoke.  I keep it plugged all the time, so I can only load 3 shells.  I have hunted deer with my Remington 700 in 30-06 and it was great.  I would like to use my Ruger 77 in .308 Win. some day, soon.  I have owned this rifle since the fall of 1980, and never taken it out hunting, just shooting paper.  I started reloading metallic cartridges for this rifle.  I could 1-3/8" groups at 100 yds, almost out of the box, with my reloads out of an old Lee loader.  I use a Remington 512x for varmints and plinking.  Bought this .22 rifle, new back in 1964.  Still shoots great.

Mostly my good ole WIN XTR 70 in the .308 cal. with 3-9x50 Tasxo scope. That's mostly for open and long range shooting.
If I'm going into more brushy area I use the ole trusty 30-30 WIN lever action, open sights.

being a pa hunter I started with a 12 gauge for everything including deer. After high school I graduated to a 30-30,that didn,t last long,by 22 I had a rem model 760 in 30-06.I hunted for about 11 years with it then bought me a rem 700 in 25-06,after 12 years I started hunting with many calibers,280,7mag,7mm08,270,and more trying to find the perfect caliber. That took me to about 50 years of age then and now after 10 years of using the 2 best I know I have 5 270s,and 3- 06s.but mainly I use whatever suits the terrain iam hunting,but I bought an 06 with a 24 inch barrel,which has a muzzle velocity with a 150 grain pill identical too my 22 inch barreled 270s with 130 gr pills.so my point is iam still confused when deer season starts as to what to use,even after 48 years,and so many rounds shot ,and gun wore out,but its so much fun looking for it.
