Hey, I am new to the hunting world and was wondering what rifle I should get?
haha sorry guys, that was really openended. Based on your experiences what has worked the best?
I dont have alot of money to spend on a set up. So low cost is a must
S&B makes excellent glass, but they're very expensive. You can get a really nice Leupold for less money, or, considering that money's tight, a Leupold Rifleman, Nikon ProStaff or Buck Master, or a Burris FullField II which usually comes with a free spotting scope, bino's, or GPS unit for around $200. For a good, solid, versatile deer rifle, I'd suggest buying a Savage "package gun" (rifle w\bore-sighted scope) in .270 which usually runs around $350-$400, sell the scope on eBay, and put one of the aforementioned scopes on it instead. Most of the factory- mounted scopes are junk, but the package guns are usually cheaper than non-scoped versions due to sales volume and selling the factory scope will help finance the better quality glass.I have been looking at schmidt-bender, anyone have experience with those?
It would be northern michigan terrain, I will try and get pictures of where we are going so you guys can get a feel for it
The term "Brush Gun" could certainly refer to light rifle that handles well in brush. But, there is no such thing as a brush cartridge that can be counted on to deliver killing shots through brush of any size, it's a myth. When a high speed projectile hits something in flight bad things happen..... Brushy area's in the woods would require a 30-30 or 30-06 are good brush Guns ... 270 not a Brush gun neither is 243...
