Hunting is quite possibly the oldest sport known to mankind.
Though it is no longer necessary to all as a means of sustenance, it is no less important. It is a vital part of wildlife conservation as well as a way of life for many citizens. In addition to that, it is just plain exhilarating.
The greater Missouri area holds an array of wildlife for hunting. This includes deer, bobcat, coyote, ducks, geese, pheasant, turkey, and much more (MDC.gov). Perhaps you are new to the sport and are looking for the right tool for the job; or perhaps you are more experienced, but would like to explore some new rifle options. Here are a few rifles you might want to consider:
- Remington model 700: This rifle has been the favorite of many hunters for years. It can be bought in a variety of calibers; the most popular tending toward the 30-06, and the .308 calibers. It is powerful and flat-shooting with good range. This makes it a good rifle for deer hunting.
- Mossberg 500: The Mossberg 500 is a good shotgun for hunting most any fowl. It comes in both 12 and 20 gauge, so it can be used for turkey and ducks, or quail, pheasant and grouse.
- AR-15: Though it may sound somewhat unorthodox, the AR-15 is an excellent rifle for hunting game such as coyotes and bobcats. It is made by a wide range of manufacturers, including Colt and Smith & Wesson. Part of its appeal is that it is highly customizable and can be tailored to suit just about any hunter’s preference.
