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.

Don't know why this said elk, mean coyotes. I've never shot an elk with a .30-30

I bet that historically more animals have been killed with 30-30 and 30-06 rifles than all the other calibers combined.
The British 303 probably does but that's not a very popular rifle any more.

I've killed quite a few NH whitetails with a Sears model 94 .30-30. Never should've sold it.

I've had a couple and killed several deer with them and for some dumb reason I've sold them. Hate it when I sell guns... I think there great overall last time I used it I got super frustrated (no scope). I had a super nice 150 class whitetail at 200+ yards and I just didnt feel comfortable with the shot, I passed. Since then I carry my 243, 308 or 300 generally when deer hunting. My elk guns are my 300 and 375.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

I carry one in my truck, usually hunt with a .270 win, unless visibility is an issue. Opening weekend of modern last year the weather was terrible with fog, rain down low snow up higher, I carried my .30-30, if you can only see 80 yards because of the fog or brush might as well.

My cousin loves his Marlin 336 30-30 and uses open sights. He loves having iron sights and is very accurate to about 150 yards. Most deer he shoots are 35-80 yards away so he does well with it and always gets his deer. Whatever you decide to shoot make sure the rifle fits your length of pull.

Took this one on the east side with my Marlin 336. Taken a couple others too. Love the gun!
