            If you're going for good price, check out the line of marlin bolt actions or savage. If you want something a little more expensive, but a superb rifle, check out the ruger m77 or remington 700. I prefer the .308 win. Marlin has now added this caliber in their XS7 line.

              I have shot three different rifles. A .243, .260, and a .270. Depending on where you are hunting should determine the caliber. I hunt in North Carolina and love my .270. It has the reach I need and the knockdown i like, but alot of it has to do with your bullet selection.

                Depends on where and what kind of deer you plan to hunt. My first deer rifle was a Marlin 1894 in 44 magnum. But that was for whitetails in Indiana at ranges of 150 yards or less. I think a great and versatile deer rifle would be a Marlin model 336 in 35 Remington or 30-30 Winchester.

                  Well depends on what state your in if your state allows high powered rifles then I would use a 30 6. But if your not allowed high powered rifles I would use a black powder rifle, or a high powered shotgun

                    Remington 700 and if Mule Deer is the largest on your wish list, a 25-06 will do you a mighty fine job! And if Elk is on, the 25-06 will do the job may lean more towards the 30-06!!

                        I would go with .308 for one reason. Since this is your first deer rifle, you probably need to do a lot of practicing. Other than .223, this is just about the cheapest centerfire ammo you can get. This way you can get a lot of trigger time without breaking the bank. That, and the recoil is minimal.

                          Get a Remington M-700 with a Leupold 3x-9x in '06 and be happy.

                            The answers above are good ones. It depends on where you live, what you will hunt, how old you are, how big you are. I would add the Browning Micro Hunter to the list as an option for a youth rifle or if you are small of stature. Chambered in 7mm-08 it will make a great deer rifle for you. My wife hunts with one and absolutely loves it. She has taken deer and wild hogs with it. Recoil is mild but the cartridge is very potent.
