If you could only own one caliber rifle for all big game hunting, what would it be?

      One gun Mr. Cooper. mine would have to be the .30-06, because range of ammo sizes,availability, and lasty but not least knock down power.

              A .375 H&H, but I don't own one. Pachyderms to pronghorns can be handled with a .375 but I would rather have a choice. Why compromise? A .223 and a .500 N.E.? a dozen stops in between. Traditional lever action carbines, tack driving bean field rifles, English double rifles, 1903 Springfield sporters, black rifles, vanilla bolt action workhorses, air weight mountain rifles, engraved Teutonic single shots. Too many choices! Enough of this sillyness, just grab the 30/06 and head out back to look for a black bear. Shoot the .458 some more before you go back to Africa.

                        The question was for ALL big game hunting. As versatile and handy as the .30-'06 is, for All big game hunting, I will have to go with the .338 Win Mag.

                                  I wear cotton all winter. In Central Alabama we rarely get snow and have relatively mild temps. I won't hunt if it's below 20 degF. A camo poncho is what...

                                  I usually wear a loose fitting pair of fairly heavy camo pants and a camo shirt for the season from short sleeve cotton to heavy wool. If it gets colder,...
