    For the short shots I also like the 30-30, but I also use a .243. For my longer shots which don't come up very often in my case I use a 30-06 or a 25-06.

    I love my Remington 700 7MM Mag. for ANY situation!


    I also think the 30-06 is a good all around deer rifle, hunted with one for years!

    My caliber of choice is the 308 Winchester. I also like the 270. I plan on going to the new 300 Winchester short magnum when I go for game larger than elk.

    I use the same gun for all those situations. A 270 remington model 700. An awesome gun to use for long range, short range, thick brush, just about anything.

    Just kidding around, those are military Rifles that I would prefer to have in those situations, if I were in combat. Sorry but I find overkill humorous, when I see guys taking these huge guns with them hunting when all they need is a 22 or a bow I think it is funny. I was seeing if anyone else felt the same way. Sorry if I offended you, I was just teaseing. I prefer a remington 22.
