    Why the 7mm Rem Mag?

    I totally agree, I could probably do most of my hunting with an 06 with the variety of 30 cal bullets available. However I enjoy trying different calibers.

    Favorite deer rifle

    Does bullet size and velocity matter?

    My Dad gave me a single shot Remington 22 when I was 11 and that’s how I learned to hunt

    That elevation is truly a game changer. Try and give yourself time to climate to it if at all possible.

    This reminds me of my 1st Bull I was 13 and using a Marlin lever action chambered in 35 Remington loaded with Remington corelockets. 6 on 1 side 7 on the other in a lodge pole pine thicket up Marble creek out of Baker, Oregon. Those were the best days.

    300 Weatherby vs 30 Nosler. Factory velocities measure up?

    I have always loved the beautiful wood stocks on the classic weatherbe rifles. I shoot lefty and I want a 257 wby as my next rifle.

    I haven’t seen even a 1 lb. can on any local store shelves in a long time. I would definitely buy it if you’re lucky enough that it’s still there.

    What age were your kids when they shot there first big game animal.

    I killed my 1st mule deer when I was 11 the same year I got my hunter safety card, my first bull elk at 12. My Dad wanted to make sure we knew our way in the woods and we’re safe on our own. My own sons just never had the desire to hunt guess I did something wrong.
