Hi there fellow hunters
Hello fellow hunters, i am a 31 year old from the poconos area, a avid fisherman who wanted to expand his knowledge and love for the outdoors and have recently passed my hunters exam and will be getting my hunting license along with my rifle in short while. Im glad to have found this forum for hunters in pennsylvania and am looking forward to making new friends and learning all about the sport and the outdoors.
I would love to get me some game this season, and am really excited. Ive already bought all my camo clothing witch was pretty pricy but very warm and comfortable. I feel like im a living, walking, breathing tree wearing it all. Im going to be ordering a few more supplys soon, But have been debating on what caliber and gun i want to choose. I wasnt able to create a thread elsewhere. So i may aswell ask for advice. Im looking to spend around 1000-1500 for a bolt action rifle and a scope, and am looking for one that will be good for medium to large game with medium to long range firing distance. I would prefer something that has a camo paintjob but am not set on anything. I have been looking at some .308 or .270 but am really not to sure what would be best for my needs and my price range. I am hoping someone here would be able to point me in the right direction.
Im looking forward to posting in other sections of the forum and trying to find some hunters in my area and to learn.
