It has been some time since I have hunted, but I have a Marlin 45-70 with a 2.5X post & crosshair scope that has put a lot of venison in the freezer. I have shot a bear and a wild boar with it as well. The one I probably like the most is a Weatherby 375 H&H Magnum. I would take it out deer hunting every now and then, and I can assure you it gets the job done (although it starts to feel a little heavy by the end of the day). I am a fan of Elmer Keith as you might guess from these choices. Back in the day, my Marlin 39 .22 with a peep sight was tough on the squirrel population.

We love to bow hunt too. But I do enjoy rifle hunting with my 700. My wife will only bow hunt though.

Hers another reason I like my 45/70 marlin 1895.

I did end up putting a scope on her. Dog gone eyes. The open sights were getting too fuzzy.

I only pull the trigger once a year....Marlin 336 30/30 lever action. It is compact, sturdy and just perfect for the hunting we do here in Florida. There is elegence in simplicity.

My most travelled is a Weatherby Accumark in .270 Weatherby.
My favorite was a '94 Winchester 32-40 take down that was previously owned by Tom Selleck.
Overall I'm a lever gun fan and collected '92 Winchesters for years.
Good to see other Marlin 45-70 fans here. I had one of the Guide guns from the first year of production. In the future I hope to score either one of the Marlin 45-70 Octagon barreled rifles or one of the older Marlin SRC's done by Doug Turnbull in 38-55.

Most of my hunting is with a Weatherby Vanguard in 7 mm Rem Mag. I mostly hunt Whitetail, but end up with lots of opportunity on Pigs, Coyotes, Auodad and Turkeys. I 7Mag em all.
