Re: New Rifle question
Both are excellent choices for deer. Every year I have many people ask me about a top caribou rifle for Alaska. The best caribou rifle is not the best rifle to carry. Like Speedo said the best rifle is one that will stop a bear at close range and also good at deer. When I hunted all the coastal islands for blacktail from Kodiak on down to the southeast I used a 340 wby mostly. Poor little deer but I felt better with the bears. A very important thing for me was the deer went straight down and did not run through the brush spraying blood everywhere I had to track him in bear country.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
