If you are first looking at going hunting then you probably don’t have a weapon. The first thing that you need to do is buy yourself a rifle. A new rifle costs between $700 to $2000, but you can save yourself some money by buying a rifle second hand. It will probably cost you about half of the cost of new rifle. However there are a few other important things that you should consider before purchasing a used gun.
The range of your rifle is equally important. Smaller animals are easier to get closer to and will often require a slightly less substantial range than larger animals. When deer or bear hunting, you will need a gun with a much longer range, because if you get too close, you could easily scare off a dear or risk your life to a bear.
Power is also something that I value in an air rifle. After firing my first 50 shots at my target I realized that some have gone straight through the board! The penetration was very good and I was very impressed. It does pack a punch at 950 feet per second and the recoil startled me at first. The Gamo Whisper is not a rifle I would not recommend to children just starting out in their hunting conquests.
Like all the best scopes, this scope is waterproof. It also features a mill-dot reticle which makes it easier for accurate aim. It has an eye piece length of 3.2 inches and a total length of 12.5 inches. Tube diameter lists as 30 mm. Its field of view at 100 yards is 7.6. It has a windage adjustment range of 100 and elevation adjustment range of 100 as well. Among the scopes for sale today, this scope has many desirable features.
If cost were no object, it would be easy to just go out and buy the latest and greatest offering the highest price sporting goods store you can find offers. For most of us, however, weighing the difference between getting the best starting rifle and keeping the cost reasonable makes your decision a little more difficult.
Another never ending debate is which caliber is best for a deer rifle. You won’t have any trouble finding old timers who will tell you the only thing to use is a 30-06. But the .270 caliber rifles probably are currently more common as a choice. Modern improvements in guns and ammo makes the .270 enough of a rifle for most situations.
Variable Rifle scopes have varied degrees of magnification. The most popular variable scope is a 3x-9x. This is the rifle scope that most white tail deer hunters choose. The 3x means a target would appear three times larger than when seen with the naked eye. The 9x means the target would appear nines times larger. The shooter can make adjustments anywhere between the 3x and the 9x, thus the target can be viewed at various sizes… This is true with any variable scope. The 3x-9x Rifle scope can prove deadly for up to 500 yards.
I’m an avid rifle hunter so great quality scopes and optics are very important for me when I’m out hunting. If it weren’t for these fine men long ago experimenting with scopes and optics we’d still be using lead sites. Don’t get me wrong I love muzzle-loading and bow hunting too. But when I’m rifle hunting I want the very best possible scope mounted to my rifle. I just won’t settle for less than the best.
If you are just learning the ins and outs of this sport and you still haven’t figured out the best rifle for deer hunting, ask your friends or hear an expert’s opinion. Get the advice of people who work with guns, and with the right price, you are sure to have the rifle that’s best for you.
