    I own an AR-15 and I like it a lot. I also got one of the scopes for it from ATN to upgrade it a little.I believe you`ll find this variant interesting.

    You know the answer: 30-06 Springfield my dad built for me in 1962. No backup.

In the Adirondacks, by boat I take my single shot 45/70. Still hunting I might take my 6.5mmSweed, or my Remington 700 30-06. Specifically for bear I would take my single shot 45/70. Most times I have my Winchester '94 at camp for a back up or, if I get tired of carrying my primary rifle or want a taste of years past, I go with the old 30-30. Generally, I am not carrying a hand gun as a back up but sometimes carry my S&W .44mag as the primary firearm
    Each is a primary for the area I hunt.

    My main deer and hog gun is a Ruger American 7mm-08 compact with a 7mm-08 Ruger American standard as backup. Also have .270 Winchester 70 and a .243 Ruger American compact. They stay in the safe at the camp during the season.

    It's good to see a Jeep with some mud on it. I keep seeing these highway heroes in their sported out 4WD vehicles that you know dang well never have and never will leave the pavement unless it's to be pulled over for speeding.

    Always crap happens. 25-06 is my new rifle for deer. 243 probably the back up. But usually carry a 30-30 in the truck during deer season. Heck usually have at least two rifles with me during season just in case.

    My utility rifle is a .300win mag it basically goes everywhere with me.

    If I'm deer hunting it's probably my .280Rem, my Ruger Ranch 6.8 is typically back at camp as a backup, or if I decide to push deer.

    I don't travel far for the most part, but when I rifle hunt I'm generally on the far side of the state. An old Montgomery Ward .30-30 is generally on board as a back-up.
