I bought a 5 round mag for my Mini and plan to take it deer hunting in a couple weeks. I really like the 5 rounder for a hunting rifle; it feels like my 10-22 when carrying it in the field. I have a Nikon 4X scope mounted on it. I have a .243 and a 30-06 I could use, but I am going to take the Mini on this trip. I killed a couple of smaller hogs with it last year, and hope to have a nice buck with it this year. Anyone else hunting with the mini-14 this year?
