    I've been watching Meat Eater on Netflix

    It's got me fired up about hunting again. One thing I noticed is these guys never use a shotgun to hunt deer, it's always a scoped rifle, even when sitting in a blind in the woods. Everyone I've ever known has used a shotgun with buck shot. Whats up with that?

    I've been looking through the Cabella's firearm selection, whats the different between a rim fire and a center fire as far as deer hunting goes? Is a 308 okay? I'd be in Kentucky.

    Is it unreasonable to be a complete novice, go out on the public land, kill a deer, dress it, and bring it home? I don't know ANYONE that actively hunts to show me the ropes.

    I want to kill something and fill my freezer. Especially in Kentucky, I can get 4 deer for a $42 license.

    But I think I'm limited to public land unless I go to Ohio at a friends place, but the license there for someone out of state is like $150. Doesn't seem worth it.

    Are there hunting clubs that teach? Maybe a class or ways to find a mentor?

      There isn’t a large enough rimfire caliber to hunt deer with. Rimfire is not as reliable as center fire cartridges. .308 would be fine for deer if you’re going to hunt with a rifle and the shot is within your range with a .308.

        Cabellas has some good deals on some bolt action remington's that come with a scope. Like $450

        I'm not buying anything, just doing my due diligence to see what this would take and if it's reasonable for me to do. Steve Rinella makes it look easy.

          I always prefer a scoped high power rifle,I use a 308 and this year will use a 6.5 Grendel I built on a AR 15. Some states limit what you can use,some are shotgun only and some limit to pistol calibers or straight wall rifle calibers, you would need to check the regulations in Kentucky but I think Kentucky is able to use normal rifle rounds. Ohio I believe is restricted.

            Kentucky is pretty loose on hunting and fishing regs. I didn't check the firearm types permitted though, I'll look in to it.

            Whats the difference between a 3006 and a 308? I might see if I can find a hunting rifle second hand, check some pawn shops. I don't know shit about calibers though.

              For a new rifle I would look at Savage and Ruger riles,new Remington's have been having quality issues,old ones were great. Dont overlook pawn shops and gun-shops for some nice used rifles.

                Get a Savage with accustock and accutrigger. Then buy you a Vortex scope. 30-06 is a nice choice, it’s more powerful than .308, kicks more too. . Fuck’n buy it, you’ll thank me later.

                  Looks like I need to take a hunters education training course before I can do anything.

                      I'm going to suggest a different route. A marlin 336 in .30-30 with a 2.5x single power forward mount long relief scout scope. Thats just what I prefer.

                        Some places put restrictions on what you can hunt with for example a crowded county might limit hunting to shotguns. Check before you get caught by the game warden.

                            I'm not going to do anything unless I know it's okay. Don't worry.
