It depends on where and how you plan to hunt and largely just on personal preference. Really, anything from a .243 on up will kill deer just fine and and even a lever action is plenty accurate at normal distances. Personally, if I am hunting open fields, I take either a Savage 110 in 30-06 or Remington 700 in 270. Both are ridiculously accurate and have more than enough range and power for any reasonable shot. In thick wooded areas, I like using a lever action, handgun, or bow. A 30-30 would be great choice. I have been very happy with both Marlin and Winchester.
