How bout a deer rifle pic thread

Lets see some pics of your deer rifle. Not every deer type gun you own. Jut the one you reach for when you're hungry for venison.

Here's my contribution. A Weatherby Vangard in a Bell&Carlson stock sporting a illuminated scope in 300WBY mag.

Here's my '75 vintage Marlin 336 30-30 with Leupold Alaskan 4X scope. It's very similar to the one I shot my first deer with. Alas, that one's long gone.

Remington 700 BDL SS in good old 30-06.

Don't have any pics of the gun alone, so here's me and my primary deer rifle.

Remington 7400 Weathermaster (nickel-plated) in .30-06. Came with a synthetic stock, but I didn't like the feel of it so I swapped it out for some wood furniture. Shoots straight, shoots quick, and hits hard. Cheap enough to abuse, and tough enough to take it. :cool:

I also hunt deer with a BAR in .300WinMag and a Remington Model 81 in .300 Savage, but those are my special-use guns. The 7400 is what I carry about 80% of the time.

'Card, that is a slick looking rifle. I really wish you had a closer shot.

Colt Sauer 270, Swarovski 2-9 30mm, Conetrol rings.

Ruger M77 MK II 7mm Rem Mag Stainless Steel All-Weather with Leupold 3-9x glass.

although it hasn't been out deer hunting yet, of the 2 (non-milsurp) deer rifles I have, this is the one I plan to use next year.
Winchester Model 70XTR 30-06 with older Bushnell Rangemaster 4x12x40mm scope

February 20, 2007, 04:22 PM
Here's my two favorites...A remington Model 700 in .243 with a Leupold Rifleman 3x9x40, and a Browning A-Bolt Hunter II in 7mm WSM with a Nikon Buckmaster 3x9x50. There are a few others, but these were the only two that left the safe this year.

Here is my deer rifle, a Benelli R1 .300 WSM

February 20, 2007, 11:48 PM
I love your gun holmux. You put my Remington 700 to shame.

February 21, 2007, 01:22 AM
Those R1's are sweet. I've been seriously looking at one in .30-06, but Remington's new Model 750 Woodsmasters are pretty sweet too. Kind of torn between the two.

February 21, 2007, 07:25 AM
You are right 'Card. That 750 is awsome and a much more reasonable price.

February 21, 2007, 07:41 AM
I will try to figure out how to get my pic up on the boards, meanwhile my DREAM deer rifle, which I have, is a Finnlight in 6.5 X 55 with a Leupold Vx-II ultralight silver scope.... proof...and BEAUTIFUL

(I wonder if this can be done just using a cell phone camera)

February 21, 2007, 07:12 PM
Tikka T3 Hunter in .270 WSM, with Nikon Buckmaster 3-9x40....nicest piece of wook I've got....

February 22, 2007, 03:08 AM

That's a nice Colt Sauer. I had one some time ago, chambered for the 300 Weatherby Magnum. It had a beautiful stock on it. The grain was beautiful. I remember, it was made by J.P.Sauer & Sohn. Those were the guys that, one time made Weatherby rifles, before they went to Japan. No open sights. Just tapped for scope mount. Nice smooth action. Rear locking lugs. The only thing I wish, they made a left handed version. I'm a left handed shooter. But, I still had to get one. Those things go for some big bucks now. When it first came out the price on it was $400/$500 dollars. I think they also made a short action version as well, for cartridges like the .243 ?

I'll take #25.

Deer rifle is on top: Marlin 336A in .30-30.
(Brand new; has yet to take a deer.
I'll put a Leupold scout scope on it.)

Deer shotgun is just below the 336; it's an 870.
(Load it with slugs, it's quite capable.)

Deer revolver is on the bottom.
(SW 686 4" in .357 mag.)

All are shorter range, in the tradition of hunters
that stalked their prey to less than 75 m
rather than shooting from 200 m ...

I've got a Savage 16 in .308. no pics tho.:o

February 22, 2007, 06:48 PM
Love to see all your new venison guns. Here's mine from the 1960's. Remington 700 ADL 30-06 with a Weaver V12 4-12X36 scope (all steel). Both are long discontinued, as is my ability to hunt. I still shoot it every year in long range competition.

February 24, 2007, 02:33 PM
'Card, that is a slick looking rifle. I really wish you had a closer shot.
I appreciate you saying that, Stinger - but I think you're lying through your teeth. :cool:

Finally got a chance to take a picture of my babies without my ugly mug in the way:

Let's be honest, the nickel-plated Weathermaster is a decent looking gun to start with, but the black scope and wood stock I put on there definitely put it in the "butt ugly" class. Fact of the matter is, the original synthetic stock just didn't 'feel' right to me, and since the Weathermaster variant was only made for one year, no one sells silver scope-mounting hardware for the 7400. Black mounts and a silver scope would have looked even dumber, so I just settled for the black scope.

I'm not a big fan of pretty guns, anyway. Like my Grandpa always told me "Makin' a gun pretty is like wrapping a ribbon 'round a hammer handle - it ain't gonna hammer no better, so why bother?" Speaking of Grandpa, the Model 81 on the bottom is one of the guns he left me, and to this day is my favorite brush-busting deer rifle. Well-balanced, mounts quick, and hits hard. Between me and Grandpa, that old gun has killed enough deer to fill a dump truck. :cool:

My usual gun of choice is my Winchester M70 30-06 feather-weight but my new one that I will use this year is a Remington M700 SPS in 300 Win Mag with a 26" barrel.It has a Burris 4.5x14x42 Bplex and is mounted with Talley one piece rings.The gun is coated in Brownells O.D. Green.The mag chamber is large enough that I can set the bullet way out for a longer C.O.L without any problems.Last time I had it out I could shoot 1/2 inch or better at 100 yard's and the rifle only set me back about $400.

My Schultz and Larsen 308 Norma. Use it for almost everything. Topped with a purple Leupold 3x9.

March 2, 2007, 11:53 PM
This was new for this past deer season. Replaced a Remington 700 in 30-06 that got stolen.

It's a Saiga in 308 Win. I have a low capacity magazine I use for hunting, but no picture with it inserted.:

March 3, 2007, 12:25 AM
Here's mine,

Rem 700 ADL with BSA Mildot 4-16x40 in Leupold mounts with Rockmount bipod. Usually don't hunt with the bipod around here though.

I don't have a pic of my deer gun alone, so here she is with her little sister 10/22:

She's a Savage Model 11 in .308. Since the pic was taken I've changed the scope to a Nikon BuckMasters 3-9X40.

March 4, 2007, 03:47 PM

March 4, 2007, 11:27 PM
Here is my first choice for a woods gun. Marlin 1895 with a 1.75-4x scope on it. I also have a back up lyman 66 to go on it should the scope ever fail while on a hunt.

Now that's a hole!

March 4, 2007, 11:37 PM
Connecticut sucks, you can only use a rifle on private land....but when hunting private land I use either my Browning A-bolt in .300 WSM with a 3-9X leupold or if it's a nice day my browning 1885 high wall in .45-70

March 6, 2007, 11:43 PM
Kimber 8400 270wsm, Zeiss scope, Black Teflon finish
