When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

30/06. Inherently accurate, more available bullet wts and styles than most, and arguably capable of taking nearly any animal you are likely to come across.

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!
