Your post about using the .30-30 for timber elk got my gears to turning. I picked up a Savage bolt action .30-30 years ago, not long after parting with my early 70s vintage Win. model 94 (which I'm still kicking myself about). Anyway, I have never really hunted with Savage much, but several years back I got to toying with the idea of putting a peep sight on it and using as a timber gun...after trying unsuccessfully to fine a peep sight the idea faded.
I'd like to hear yours, and others, experiences on using it for elk, and maybe moose or bear sized game?
