Not sure if this is the proper area to post this, but I am looking into getting a higher caliber rifle. Currently I hunt with a REM 700 243 and it does a good job just wanting to step it up. My dad has a 270win and I have been looking at browning xbolt 270wsm. I would appreciate advice as to what to get or if I even need the step up...I typically hunt in thick hardwoods and also on the edge of soybean fields. Thank you for the help.
I am currently a student at East Carolina University and interested in finding hunting property near school for next year (2014 Season). I have given it much thought and researched about joining clubs and such, but I've heard it is also easy to join with a farmer or farmers and hunt their property. I'm from the Western part of NC and hunt when I can at home, but am looking for something closer to school. Does anyone have any suggestions, do I join a club or link up with farmers?
