I bought a lever action rifle years ago but never got around to trying out hunting.So I dusted off the obsolete thing and am in the process of mounting a scope on it, this itself is a learning process. I have been hesitant to try hunting due to lack of knowledge and gear. If I could keep the cost down and do some deer hunting that would be good. So many aspects of hunting such as field dressing and butchering that I find daunting. Would like to be self sufficient will everything?
