I have stated in my Intro. I am a novice when it comes to rifles, I have a Savage hog hunter chambered in.308 but am anticipating a trip in the next year or two uo to my cousins in ALASKA I know they grow things very big up there and was hoping to get some advise on Caliber and model of Marlin that would be within the 1000.00 range and bolt action and any tips if you all have hunted in Alaska! Thanks

....Christmas gifts , this baby would look quite nice with a bow on the box under the tinsle and lights!! I just got really excited!!!My wife will feel good that I really like her gift for me as well!
By golly I think Dutchs is catching on quick !!! :cool::cool::cool::D
For some , the ability to hit a dime at 300 yards consistently from a bench is what they enjoy.
For me , where I hunt is a lot different than out on a prairie or shooting from one mountain to another .

I like the leverguns , they carry easy , hit where you point them , kill what you hit , and are just plain fun for me to shoot :D
