Default Buying guns for deer hunting

Hi!

I've been thinking in buying a gun to begin with deer hunting, but in pages like https://www.hinterlandoutfitters.com/ there are way too many options, which would you recommend me?

Thanks

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.

If I had to pick one rifle from that site to recommend without knowing where you will be hunting or what your budget is, it would be this https://www.hinterlandoutfitters.com...e-p-52242.html but it is hard to go wrong. If you tell us what conditions you will be hunting in and what your budget is, we can give a little more useful answers. Also, don't skimp on the optic. Choosing a good optic is more critical than choosing the best rifle.
