    I have a piece of property that I hunt where I'm not far from some houses (I wont shoot that direction) and I don't know what there position is on hunting. I want to find a centerfire long gun that will be as quiet as possible to cull out a few does.

    Sorry guys I hit the post button before I was ready. I was thinking a 38/357 lever action but any thoughts would be great.

    Suppressed ar in 300 blackout?

    Or a suppressor on one of your existing rifles?

    I think the trick is to run subsonic ammo if possible too.

    Hmm. Well, I guess that rules out a suppressor.

    I would think bolt action, subsonic ammo, longer barrel, but I don't know enough about the various rifle calibers to to know what has the quietest report.

    My stand is about 100yds from the houses. I had issues with neighbors at another property back in Aug were he called the cops while we were shooting clays before my wedding. But anyways thats another property I'd use that gun.

    A bow? Seriuosly though, if firing a gun and hunting on the property is a legal activity, I wouldn't be too concerned about noise levels. I would be willing to make some concessions but certainly wouldn't make too many.

    I would draw a little sketch of the property, with shooting directions and property lines/houses. Let them know you are in compliance with the law (Deer season starts ...I will be hunting) and not a crazy guy*. They will hear the shots, may as well let them know what is going on.
    *unless you are a crazy guy.

    I have permission from the land owner and generally gun hunt the far side and bow hunt the near side of the property. I'm within the 500ft of a house that's why I don't wanna make waves

    Don't do anything. Shoot a deer once, gut it, and leave. A single shot probably won't be a concern, but multiple shots will get their attention.

    Seems courteous to inform the neighbors that you hunt and that you are careful about directions of shooting. Keeps them from reporting legal-hours shooting to law enforcement and causing some sort of hassle.

    IMO you are on the right track but wrong caliber. To me the 357 (becuase of the high pressure) is a ear splitting crack. If it were me I'd think about the 45 Colt in a lever gun. Low pressure, less noise and if you reload you can taylor your load.
