308, it works well in brush and you can reach across a cutover when the opportunity presents itself.

308 is just more versatile than 30-30.

a used marlin 3030 with open sights and a new savage 308 with scope would fit your budget and mood.

Either will do the job splendidly but if this is the only rifle you are going to own a .308 bolt action is a more adaptable firearm. It will do anything a 30-30 will an then some. The reverse is not true.
