Was going to be my AR10 in 308.... went to shoot it today. Grouped like crap... 8inch groups at 100 when normally it is cloverleafs.

So I’m taking the fiancés savage 308 and a backup 270 TC encore.

Along with my AR15 in 300BO with night vision

J. C. Higgins .270 and AR in 5.56 on the stand, Marlin youth .243 stays in the truck and is an absolute blast to shoot.

But I did recently acquire a Savage 11 in 7-08. Might take it instead of .270

Out of the “few” rifles I own my 16yo son’s go to rifle is the marlin xs-youth in 7mm-08. He used it to drop one of our designated culls yesterday.

I’ll be toting a 16” suppressed 6.5cm savage at one lease (no pigs) and a 6.8 at the other lease (pig poison).

I shot a doe with my 10mm pistol last year & want to shoot one with my judge this year.

I used my 12 ga Rem 870 slug gun to take a couple of doe in Arkansas a couple of weeks ago.

I will be using my Marlin 336 30-30 and my Mossberg 4x4 30-06 for the rest of the season in Arkansas. I will be using my Sako 300 Wby at Powderhorn in Jan with the 30-06 as a backup.
