Just curious as to how many avid hunters are a part of MIMB. I usually hunt deer and hog during the season and ringneck dove and quail during their seasons.
Weapons of choice: Browning A-Bolt II Stainless Stalker .280 Rem 4.5 x 14 Leupold VX III illuminated reticle-Beanfield rifle..good elk and sheep medicine.
Browning A-Bolt II Micro Hunter 7MM-08 Rem 2 1/2 x 8 Leupold Vari-X III My favorite rifle for deer & hog. Easy to manuver in a tree stand or hike with all day. Out to 360yds, she brings home the meat.
Now to my sweetheart...Browning Auto-5 Light 20 ga. 26" Invector choke. I've owned a few wing guns in my day but nothing is as easy to master as this one.

I have a"few" more rifles and shotguns in the ol' safe but these are my faves.

Mostly deer, hogs, doves and ducks.

My 06 is my baby. It is a Savage 110 with a Timney trigger and Leupold 3-9 VX-II. It is not a fancy high dollar setup but it is the most accurate rifle I have ever shot. With my handloads it will shoot sub 1/4" groups at 100 yards. When the shots are shorter and especially for hogs, I like to use my Marling 1895G in 45-70 with 2-7 Nikon. For wingshooting, I use a Winchester 1300. My favorite, though, is my bow. There is nothing quite like getting it done with a bow. I also have my bodyguard with me anytime I go in the woods. It is a Ruger Super Redhawk 7.5" barrel .454 Casull. She is very comforting to have around and will put a hog down with authority.

Deer mostly with my lever action 336C Marlin 30-30, fixed 4X Leupold.

I have several centerfire calibers, 300 WM, 30-06, 25-06, .223 all in different configurations, (bolt, semi-auto) and different power scopes but in the end, it's always my trusty "dirty thirty" I carry to the woods. I always say "I've shot at every deer I've killed with it"

Spring Turkey is my Bread & Butter. So, iys tough to beat my ol' 870 Super Mag Remington.

When I chase Deer, I usually opt for the PSE Carrerra, with the Orion Cam, Muzzy ZE arrow rest. If I tote a rifle, none other than my Marlin 30-30 will do.

If it's furry and in season i'm always willing to go hunting for it. Deer,rabbit,moose,bear and the occasional stray cat. If i'm hunting anything where i might have to shoot over 300 yards I use my good old Weatherby 30-06 with a 4.5-14 simmons. My favorite gun is my .450 bushmaster I use it for pretty much anything..it puts a wooping on coyotes from 200-250 yards.

Rem 700 .270 w/ tasco worldclass scope. For the price, you can't beat this rifle or scope. It's extremely accurate, every year.
