As the title says I'm hoping for some recommendations on a deer, elk, bear rifle and scope for under $1,000 total. I'll use it for pack trips so I don't want something too heavy but I'm in fair shape so a few extra pounds won't break me. I'm really only concerned about function. Looks are not important. I've picked 30-06 caliber because it seems to be commonly used, versatile, and widely available. I'd also like a rifle that is fairly common and has parts/accessories easily available. Unfortunately I live in the boondocks so finding something used would be difficult. I've had good luck with Buds but would be willing to shop at any reputable store. Anyone seen any good deals? If not maybe just suggestions on a rifle/scope combination that might work. Thanks in advance.
