A lifetime with the .30-06 rifle
The only center-fire rifle I owned was a Winchester Model 94 carbine in .30-30 caliber. I used it for deer when I hued in Ottertail County, at Melrose and near St. Cloud. After several moves with the family, we were at the fringes of St. Cloud. The area was wooded, and hunting was very much available. I used a shotgun on ruffed grouse, a 22 rimfire rifle on tree squirrels and rabbits, and of course the 30-30 for deer. Hunting was very good in those pre war days.
