Re: Swamp Rifles?

I live in louisana! Never heard of a swamp rifle! We have swamps, bean fields, woods where you can see 50 to 100yrd's an right of way's(pipe lines an high lines). Guess what I'm trying to say is if I hunt the thick wood's a 45-70 is my choice. Anything else I use a 7mm rem mag! Hope this help's.

Re: Swamp Rifles?

I do a lot of that type hunting in Florida and my go to gun for this is my Marlin 30-30 lever action. My open country guns are my Ruger M77 Mark II's. Out to 300 yards I grab the 270. Anything further it's my 7MM Rem Mag.
