Hunting Rifles

What do you use for deer or bear season? Post some pics and tell what you use. I have a Remington model 7600 Carbine in a 30-06 that I use for bear and deer.

Re: Hunting Rifles

I have hunted with alot of different rifles in my lifetime. But I must admit my go to rifle for the past 8 or 10 years is an Encore. I had a couple of stocks built to fit me perfect. So I got a custom rifle fit for around $1,000 total rifle price. The Encore is a great hunting rig. It is short and very fast handling. It weighs just about right as far as I am concerned. And it fits me like a glove.

It is also great because I have a few actions and several barrels. And there is something to be said about getting use to a rifle. So all my rifles feel exactly the same. Regardless of cartridge.

My go to deer rifle is a SS 30-06 with a removable muzzle brake. I can shoot that rifle more accurate than any rifle I have ever owned under hunting conditions.

A custom target rifle may be more accurate off the bench than an Encore. I will not debate that. But in hunting circumstances the Encre platform out performs most rifles in my opinion. Tom.





With matching laminated stocks.

Re: Hunting Rifles

Here is one of my favorites. Its a bone stock Pre-64 M-70 in .270 Winchester. The wood is incredible, right from New Haven, circa 1950. Its deer poison!

Re: Hunting Rifles

Thanks Loggy! Many have speculated on this one over the years. Most agree the wood is from a grafted tree. You can see where it changes from dark to light the growth rings get smaller. I have turned down "piles" of cash for this one, it may go in the coffin with me!
