Bowtech Tomkat (wifes)
Bowtech Nuclear Ice (sons)

Gun hunting is only done if the tags are not filled bowhunting which very rarely happens. Its kinda like cheating using a gun.

I have a custom AR15, Marlin 336 in 35rem, Rem 700 BDL in 260rem, and I also hunt with my Ruger Blackhawk in 357mag. The wife has a Rem 7 in 257 roberts. The boy hunts with his Mossberg 920 20g or the AR.

5 guns on my lease. 3 guys shoot .270's exclusively. One shoots a 7mag. Then there's me. I generally tote one of three .30-30's for does, culls and pigs, but when the seasons only trophy is my quarry and I'm parked in my most distant tower chair, I use a .308.

When I hunt with a club they usually have at least 30 members. This is NC. We use dogs to hunt deer. When we are all tight in an area we use shotguns and buckshot. When we are not ganged up to be in position to catch the dogs hunters use almost any gun from shotgun slugs to 300 mag. No one heads out for the day with just one gun. I carry a Maverick 88 loaded with buckshot, A Mossberg 500 slug gun, a 30/06 BAR and a Ruger Blackhawk 357. I use the gun that suits the situation since I move several times a day. Even if you hunt alone there is no magic bullet. You need a gun for every situation.

I used a Howa 1500 chambered for 30-06, my brother toted an old, cheap, Remington 710 in .270, a couple of family friends brought Ruger Americans, one in .308, another in .243. One of their friends brought a .243 Remington 770. I guess you can say economy bolt guns rule this neck of the woods. I hung up the old, trusty Marlin 336, but miss it already. Perfect woods gun IMHO. Very lackluster, but these cheap rifles, work for, "once a year" deer rifles. They all were zeroed before hunting, and all shot slightly more than MOA. Including my Howa. The 710, being probably least accurate at 1.5-1.75 (rough estimate off of memory for what that's worth). This year is the the year of the 45-70, for me if all goes as planned.

I'm a one man deer camp so the only rifle is a Remington 700 ADL in .30-06 with a Redfield 3-9, but the people I pig hunt with use either a Winchester 70 FW .30-06 with a 6-18 Leupold (too much scope IMHO) or a Ruger Mk II 7mm Rem Mag with a 3-9 Burris.

30-30 rules the roost in our camp. I think the biggest reason is they are carried every day in our trucks. An occasional 270, 25-06 shows up. A 300 mag showed up 1 year. Must have heard 1,000 times, we ain't hunting moose.

270 win, 270 WSM, 44 magnum, a couple 30-06s and my 6.5x55
The old man with the 270 Win has killed more deer then the rest of us put together
__________________
Tikka T3 because 1/8th MOA is much better then I can ever shoot in the field anyway, and heavy rifles are a pain to carry around all day.
6.5x55 because they only get so dead, and recoil/muzzle blast are highly overrated.
