Good for you getting your son in the gameand putting safety firstORIGINAL: bad faulkner
Browning Lever Rifle in the .270. It was a gift. I could never afford such a rifle. I love it, though.
My son's going deer hunting with his own gun this fall with me. We got him a NE youth synthetic .243. On days he wants to hunt, we'll only take his gun. I hope to help him get his first deer and then get my own with his little gun.
We hunt from tree stands in our coastal SC area for safety reasons. One rifle in the stand is a safe practice, especially with a new hunter like him. I will act as his guide and mentor and frankly, I'm more excited about him finally wanting to hunt than if I killed a monarch buck.
I grew up using a .218b until the 6th grade when the family 30-30 was handed down.
Once I began hunting in SC after relocation, my uncle and best friend bought me the BLR 270.
I've killed deer with borrowed 30-06's. One was a Rem 700 and the other was a Rem 742. Both are fine guns and a wonderful caliber.
Am very happy with the 270 and see no difference between it and the 30-06.
My son's only eleven and only 4'8" so I wanted him to start with the .243.
