My father and I take a trip out west to Big Game Hunt every year and we are going to Colorado this year to hunt Elk and Mule Deer. We never get a guide and always hunt public land and have been fairly successful in the past. I need a new setup wanted to get some opinions on Rifle and Scope selections. I dont have a ton of cash and would like to spend only what I have to. I would like to be comfortable taking one of these animals down at 250yds. I would like a synthetic stock because we hunt some pretty rugged terrain and I used to shoot a Howa 338 before it was stolen this year from my garage. Havnt really shot any other rifles since they arent legal here in Indiana. I dont know where to even begin. Thanks in advance!
