Hi Davey. I like to keep it simple. I use a Marlin model 1894 lever action 44 mag with open sights. You'd be hard pressed to find a handier little rifle. Rather than cover an open field, I like to sit in the woods, so my shots are under 50 yards. But I practice a lot out to 100 yards.
Most important thing is to have a good time.
I'd rather not get a deer but have a good time then to get a deer but not have a good time in the woods.
