I stumbled upon this site and you guys seem to know what your talking about so i thought i ask what you guys thought. I recently went Deer Hunting for the first time. I got very luck and got my first deer on the first day. I used a rifle i purchesed at the bigginig of this summer for Varmint Hunting (Savage in 223). The rifle did the job but it was more of a lucky shot. My question is what would you folks recomande for a hunting rifle that could be used for deer and up but mainly deer. I would be looking for something that did not cost a arm and a leg since i am a poor college student going into the Army after graduation.
