down in my family or passed. :)

I shoot a Ruger 270, got it when I was 16 I think?? My dad said when I earned my Eagle Scout award that I could get a rifle and the incentive was he would pay 1/2 of the price on whatever gun/setup I wanted.

Needless to say I'm an eagle scout now and shoot the same gun. Killed a bunch of mule deer with him...

I actually have quite a few that have been passed down through the family but the ones I hunt with are:

Remington 700, bought a few years ago

.32 Winchester Special (brush/timber gun), passed to me from my mom on my 21st birthday. She bought it as a teenager in the '50's so she could hunt with her dad.

I've taken both deer and elk with both, well, only deer with the .32, and look forward to taking many more in the years to come with them until I pass them down to the younguns in the family.
It ain't the size of the gun but the placement of the bullet.

bigbuck92, I hunted for years with a Remington Gamemaster pump-action .270 that was passed down to me from my father and I knocked over more than my fair share of deer with it.

However, four years ago my wife bought me a new Remington model 710 30.06. Although my heart still lies with my first "big game" rifle, the .06 has quickly won me over. Especially when I can say I've harvested two wild pigs, one Mulie, and three Whitetail during that period.

Here's are some pics of three mulies I harvest with what is still my "favorite" gun, the Gamemaster .270

Gun

This is not the rifle that I hunt with but I will say that it is my favorate. It is a 300 savage lever action. If your anything like me the first thing you did was cringe when you herd savage but this gun was just recentely willed to me by a great hunting buddy of mine who had a battle with stomack cancer. His name was ray and he was one of the most humble honest guys around. So this gun will always be my favorite.
