First or worst deer getter

Sure, myself and everyone here have some amazing rifles, but what about the brush busters, or maybe your first deer rifle? Here's my first hi-power from when I was 12. The OLD (1952 to be exact) Remmy 760. It's got more blemishes and scars than most of the women I've dated, but I still love her! Just something about that crusty sounding action and gouges in the stock that make me grin.

I still have my Marlin .30-30 that at least 3 generations have hunted with, got a couple of them actually. Something about still hunting the thickest brush with a lever gun.

Sconnie how'd you like the trigger pull on the old 760? I had one and thought softball size groups were good. Till I went to bolt .

Re: First or worst deer getter

started with an 1895 mauser 7x57, iron sights. Dad hit everything I ever saw him shoot at, I however never hit anything with it. Still have it, plan to sporterize it and
set it up with a scope. As for first rifle I was successful with, Browning lever action in .308 win.
