Hi folks, longtime lurker of this forum, finally getting back into deer hunting. I hunted one season back in the late 90s and killed a huge doe. Life happened and I never continued in the sport for whatever reason. I now have a 10 year old son who is getting into deer hunting. It's also rekindling my deer hunting desires. I need to buy him a rifle, actually maybe a rifle we can both use. Someone today told me to get a 6.5 creedmore?? I was going to buy a 30 30 Marlin? When I hunted up in Indiana, we could just use shotguns, that's why I don't have a rifle. Thoughts and opinions appreciated!!!
