I have one in a 30-30 caliber.  I have killed a bear,couple deer, and elk with it.  It thumps pretty good.  One of the bear I got with it was one that charged me from about 30 yards.  that pistol basically saved my life.  I have a 3x Burris on it.

I'd get a caliber that is readily available in the store. I used to own a .357 Herret but traded it for the 44/410 barrel so I could buy ammo if I needed it quickly. I really liked all the fuss and stuff to get loads ready for the Herret but time is valuable.
You really can't go wrong with the 30-30 there is also the 35 Remington but I believe the 30-30 is by far the most popular round out there.
For scopes I am at a loss...for some reason I don't like using them. I have several scopes and several guns without scopes. I find I shoot the ones without scopes the most. :dunno:

30 - 30 sounds good

I was looking at a red dot scope for low light conditions in the brush, any comments?

I've never used one, but it might be handy with that particular gun.  Its a heavy SOB and hard to keep a good clear site with the scope at times, especially offhand.

Here is that Idaho buck.  I took his picture, then plugged him with the contender.

Your kidding right, hunting from a kayak? Don't get me wrong, I just don't think one could get a good shot from a kayak.
That's my one shot.

I would consider using a kayak for the travel , but how do you haul the meat out from a big animal unless you have a really large kayak? Wouldn't a canoe be better?

I was kinda curious how this works, as well.
