Exotic Rifle for Deer Hunting?

by admin

I was thinking about getting a new hunting rifle for deer, but I really want to get something different, not just a normal rifle [like a semi auto Assault Rifle, just as a broad example]. does anyone have any suggestions for exotic rifles that double as deer hunting rifles?
i live in Wisconsin

and by exotic i mean if i come across someone else they’ll be like "whoa thats pretty cool"

I’m not sure what you mean by ‘Exotic’ but if you can take down a deer with a black powder rifle that is impressive.
Last year a friend of mine took down a 10 pointer with a Savage .177 at 75 yards.
If you want ‘Exotic’ try a Fianchi or something Italian. The shot is what counts.
Drop a Buck at 200 yards with a 30-30 and you’ve got my respect!

cheap deer hunting rifle with cheap ammo for practising?

I use my DPMS 308 LR with an adjustable stock and 24" fluted Barrel with a free floating forend, reversed bipod Chip McCormack trigger with Handloaded 168 Grain Combined Technology silvertips. This rifle and ammunition combination will shoot a dime at 100 Yards consistantly. This is my stand gun.

Overkill? Yes, Odd, Yes effective? Hell Yeah!

My spot and stalk gun is equally unusual, Romanian PSL all stock except it has the Tapco G2 trigger and an 8 Power PSOP scope instead of the 4X and I use Handloaded 150 Grain Hornady SP bullets in Graf Brass that give it a respectable .8-.9" groups at 100 Yards.

Mind you the groups and dime shots are off the benchrest and not freehand I would never claim to be as good as these guns can shoot.

They do get a lot of "what the hell is that" when I run across another hunter in the woods. But they work and I like them

A friend has the best hog-hunting rig I’ve ever seen, and it would work well for deer, too: a side-by-side (double barrel) in 8×57. I’d dearly love to have something like that.

These are expensive….. I do not know if anyone makes an inexpensive double barrel rifle but its worth looking into….
