        I have to agree with 99explorer. The .30-'06 is the answer to your prayers!

              If you like a long action rifle go with the 30-06, you will not be disappointed. If you like a shorter action rifle i would say the .308 would be the best all around. IMO

                Have to say 3o-o6 also for all above reasons!

                  Yup! Its hard to beat the 30-06 for a one gun all round rifle. That's exactly why I bought mine.

                          300WSM the 30-06 on steroids without alot of extra recoil.

                              Can't beat the 30-06 or the .308! Both are great for big game

                                I suppose a 400 pound doe would be extra ordinary, but there WAS the legendary "Hinckley Buck".

                                I would have a hard time with the validity of such a story. In all my years of elk hunting, that was about the weight of a cow elk. But then, when I read...
