ITs always sad to think of only having three rifles but for the sake of the question:
Medium weight 22-250 for all varmint/predator hunting
Sporter weight 7mm Allen Magnum for all general purpose big game hunting
Heavy sporter in 338 Allen Magnum for all long to extreme range hunting.(this may well change to a 375 AM with more testing, I am so far very impressed with the 375 AM but the 338 AM is proven).
Allen Precision Shooting Home of the Allen Magnum, Allen Xpress and Allen Tactical Wildcats and the Painkiller Muzzle brakes.

22-250 or 243
270 or 300 (probably 270)
this spread covers everything

Since the question seems to focus on "big game" rifles, I'll jump over the many great smaller game calibers. I'd start with a hot 7mm (something like a STW or Kirby's) for longer stuff, use a 338 win for general big game hunting, and a 470NE double for dangerous game.

I would only need one...and use it to shoot myself...no reason to live if you could only have three!
But...should I decide to go on living such a limited life I would have;
There is not such thing as too many guns, safes or fishing poles!
