I cant decide which rifle to take this year.

Last year i took a my 270, occassionally my marlin 3030.

I bought a 6.8 spc this year with a nikon scope.

I hunt east Texas, shots under 115 yards. Fairly thick, some open areas.

What do yall do? Which would you use as primary?

6.5 CM will be my primary for the Hill Country again this year.


300 Blackout for East Texas where a long shot is far less likely.

Different one for every animal. It will be all leverguns this year and open sights.

308 suppressed for the deer, and I take my 45/70 everywhere just in case but especially in truck or any hunting vehicle, open sights, always drops the hogs!

aim 6mm every year for the last 15 years. Before that a 358 model 99 Savage since 1972. The 6mm never fails me and I love the sound it makes when the bullet hits a hog in the face. clap clap banana

I have a single shot 357 MAX open sight rifle that I absolutely love! I hunt East Texas and most of the property is very thick so most shots are 60 yards or less. It's extremely light so it's a breeze to carry and super short so it doesn't snag on any brush. Never fails to drop deer or hog!

I've grown fond of my .270. In the past I carried my 30.06 or .243.

Usually only need one, but often take 2 when out of state. Just to far to get caught with a problem

I usually take 2 out for a hunt, just in case. Have hunted seasons with only one rifle and taken deer with as many as 8 rifles another season, just depends on the mood of the moment and sometimes getting some out of the safe.

This year I will be using a 6.5 Grendel bolt action most of the time it is light weight, handy well balanced and fun to shoot.

Depends on the blind, usually a 6.8 or 7mm-08. If I finish my .308 before the season it will be the go-to.
