    One thing you can do is go to a custom load and reduce your powder used to a minimum. Probably won't make that much difference but it just might be enough for you. also you can switch to a different recoil pad. I shoot the .270 in that model and the recoil pads that came factory are genrally not the best.

      You might want to try a set of shooting sticks. They will allow you to lean into the gun alittle and that should help with the pushing back. If you plant your back leg, (i.e. right leg for right handers) and lean into your gun alittle you will be using your body as an anchor.

        Using your sling, if you have one, to wrap around your support arm steadies the rifle considerably. Really though, the only thing that helped me to become more field steady is constant and continual practice, practice, practice, in a variety of hunting positions. After I make sure my rifle is still zeroed in the fall I practice sitting behind sage brush, sitting in front of a fence post, shooting around a bale of hay, etc. Any position I can think of that I might use during hunting season I try to use for a few rounds of practice. It’s really one of the most enjoyable things I do prior to hunting season.

          I've been hunting for some 47 years. I've used everything from a .223 to 30-06 but my favorite caliber is the .270 Winchester. The recoil is not as drastic as the 30-06 and with 150gr. it shoots nice and flat for easy 300 yard shots. My favorite rifle is my Heavy Bbl 1967 Sako Finnbear .270 with a Leupold veri-x II 3-9x40mm Duplex scope. Total Weight- 9 pounds loaded. If I were you I'd dump the 30-06 and pick up a .270, less kick, less rise on the barrel when fired and better control while cycling the bolt action between shots.

            GO TO A LESS RECOIL RIFLE, AN 06 IS NOT REQUIRED FOR DEER, TRY 243 25-06 OR A LIKE. ACCURATE SHOOTING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE RIFLE.

              There's some good answers here. I've used shooting sticks with great success but don't always carry them. Sometimes I prop against a tree, placing my hand so that the rifle is never directly touching the hard bark. If nothing else is available, I brace my elbow on my leg when sitting or on my waist when standing.

                I think buying a whole other rile when all you're looking to do is be more stable is foolish.
                For the sake of this answer I'm assuming you're in a standing position. This is the most difficult position. Only your upper body is providing you support, if you choose to shoot this way, and you need more support, try going to a wider stance at your feet.
                Moving to a prone position is good if you can manage it, especially if you have a bipod on your rifle. if not try to find a convenient front rest.
