I shot a spike white tail near Colville year before last during the late hunt with my marlin 336ss using hornady lever evolution 160 flex tips.It was about a 75-100 yard shot.

yep gun I learned with was a 30/30.  :tup:
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Pretty sure it's the most under rated gun in anyone's arsenalwouldn't hesitate on shooting any big game animal with it out to 200 yards  :twocents:

Sweet rifle!

The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

i've got a win 30/30 that was made-according to the serial#- around 1951...shoots real well with 170 gr bullets--with the buckhorn sights and my crappy age degenerated eyesight can still hit a beer can at 80 yards...killed 2 blacktails this past couple years...nothing wrong with this caliber
beer---it's whats for dinner

I shot my 1st deer at 10 years old with a open sight 30-30. 200yd shot on a big mule deer doe. I drew a spring bear tag this year and am going to use my grandfathers Winchester 30-30 I inherited when he passed away 10 years ago. According to serial number, made in 1977.

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

30-30 I set up for a thick timber/brush gun. Burris scout scope,XS sight rail, hornady leverevolution ammo. Compact, lightweight, easy to carry rifle.

My first rifle was a Winchester 30-30 & it's put away some deer & elk. Over the years, I bet the 30-30 has put millions of deer in the freezer.

I killed my first two deer with the 30-30. Quick clean kills.
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

I occasionally hunt with a Marlin 336 in 30/30. Used it on the West side for deer. I've brought it on Eastside hunts as a spare.
