    I finally scoped my old '67 Ruger .44 Carbine I bought at a gun show years ago. I threw an old 70s Weaver V4.5-II scope on it in some Weaver rings to kind of keep it period. I have only had it on the range once but it seems to shoot pretty good.

    That said it'll be hard not to take my No. 1 in .35 Whelen with modern glass on opening day because I have built confidence in it over the last few years. Both are going to camp and I just threw shells for both in my backpack.

    I want to use a rifle I haven't taken a deer with yet this year. Probably my sbr 8.5" .300 blk subsonic suppressed I just put a vortex strike eagle on. Or the same lower with my 12.5" 6.8 SPC upper. Suppressed of course.

    A young man will be using my 9mm PCC rifle trying to take his first deer.
    Depending on the location there could be the .243 WSSM or the Ruger .44 mag carbine with red dot.
    As always there will be a Ruger Super Redhawk on the hip for close shots if possible.

    Going to hunt with my dad for the first time ever.
    He'll be using my old style Ruger M77 in .270 and I'll take my son's Ruger American .243.

    Main rifle will be my custom 7mm-08 built on an MRC 1999 with a Krieger #2 contour barrel in a McMillan Winchester Classic stock. I have a lot of confidence in that rifle.

    That’s absolutely great you’re getting to hunt with your Dad, but what’s your son going to hunt with?!?:scratch:

    He's got a date that night we're leaving, so he'll be hunting something else entirely :laugh6:

    By the way retrieverman, I'm going to finally shoot those .270 handloads you gave me. That would be awesome if my dad could shoot his first deer with your handloads!
