favorite deer caliber

What caliber have you killed the most deer with and which caliber is your favorite. Mine is 308. Killed more deer with it than probably all the other combined. But it helps my gun for it is perfect for it Short, light, easy to walk in the woods with, easy to carry, and great treestand gun.

I a habit of taking different rifle, to keep things newish

But I think it would be a tie between the 30/06, and a 7mm 08

Yes 30-06 is a fine deer cartridge to round here in my country unless your hunting powerlines or a rare large field a 308 normally is all needed.
