    wow seeing a lot more .35's than I thought I would, and less 32win spl's than I thought I would, I also thought there would be more 45-70's , I remember a few years when everyone had eather over 30cal's or under 30cal's but no one showed up with a 30cal , and there are a lot of 30cal's out there. but they just didn't make it to are hunting party that year ,"a bit odd I thought"
    I have not seen any .32rem's yet , ? I guess I'll take mine out this year ,so I can list it :)

    Whinny 94 30-30, Rossi 308, Marlin stainless 30-30, Marlin blued 30-30, Savage 270. I thought about takeing my Mosin M44, but that is just to much weight. Now the gun that stays in the camp behind the front door usually is 30-06 for the long field that is infront of the cabin. Ive been kicking around the idea of a 444 marlin, just for a shoulder realignment.

    My group, Savage 110 in 7 Rem-Mag, Rem 700 in 30-06, Ruger 77 in 257 Bob,
    a Chilean 95 Mauser carbine in 7x57, and a Yugo 24/47 sporter in 8x57(mine).
    The Bob & Chilean wear iron sights. (the old guys--LOL).
    One or two of us usually bring a back-up just in case;
    I bring a 30-30 and the savage guy brings another 110 in 270

    It's just hard to beat the 30 30 for deer.But if I think I will get a shot over 200 yards than my 30 06 is coming out 451 yards last year just a doe but great shot for me anyways about 3 to 3.5 foot drop

    No deer camp, we just show up at a relative's place or meet up in the woods. Depending on where we are really determines which calibers show up, i don't take a 30-30 to eastern MT where a 200-300+ yd shot is the norm and anything less than 100 is lucky.

    2-.300 Win Mag
    1-.300 RUM
    3-30-06
    3-30-30
    2-.243 Win
    1-6mm Rem
    1-7mm-08
    1-.307 Win
    1-35 Whelen
    1-45-70
    1-45-90
    1-300 Savage
    1-.280 Rem
    2-.270 Win

    If you were to come around the people I hunt with, you would see a lot of Winchester, Remington, and Ruger bolt actions mostly in .270, some in .30-06, and a few in .243. Until I show up with my Stevens .308, Mauser 8mm, and my PSL in 7.62X54R.

    I had to look that one up too, as I have never heard of it , cool round, looks like a 30/30 shoots like a 300 savage , so you get just under 308win power in a win 94 lever gun ,,

    can he still get factory ammo for that 307win. ?
