    When I did hunt when I was younger (almost getting shot by some jackass ended that for me) I used a .30-06 when went to VT and 12 gauge in MA.

    I hunt with my Ruger No.1 7mm mag. My wife loves her S&W 1500 .25-06. I got the 7mm because I think its big enough for anything in the states but still not overkill for mule deer.

    .30-30

    I will be getting a .30-06 this year.

    I'm embarassed to admit it, I'm the world's most unsuccessful hunter except when it comes to birds. I love to hunt quail and doves and my old Remmy 1100 has been my constant compainion.

    My favorite hunting rifle is a very accurate custom 7mm Remmington Magnum that all of my best whitetails were taken with. I also have a Remmington Model 788 in .243 Winchester (too light for deer in my humble opinion) and a Ruger bolt action 30-06 a great cartridge. However, a good friend and hunting buddy carries a custom lightweight chambered in 270 Weatherby with 140 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips. This is possibly the ultimate whitetail rifle, at least of the rifles that i've seen firsthand. Great downrange energy, superb accuracy, light recoil and from 200 yards and closer it's absolutely lights out.

    7.62 x 39

    Ever seen the exit wound produced by a 7.62 x 39 hollow point at a shot under 75 yards?

    About the size of a golf ball. Honest.

    It is one of my favorites launched by a SKS paratrooper model. Sweet little stalking piece.

    I enjoy deer hunting a lot more when using my bow, so I chose other.

    I only wish I could use a rifle, I live in Ohio, where you have to use a shotgun. So I spend big $ on Hornady SST slugs and I can still drop a deer in its tracks from 150+ yards.

    That's because you probably should not be hunting with a Baby Eagle .40.

    Is there anywhere that you can legally hunt anything with a .40 semi auto? Here in Ohio, there is not.

    In FL all centerfire rifle and pistol cartridges are legal, as long as they are used to hunt migratory birds. No military ball ammo is legal for deer as well as rimfire cartridges.
