The 30-06 semi automatic (S-A) Sportster is the best rifle to use for hunting anything. Have it sighted in at the furthest target on the sighting range if you like to take long shots or sight in at whatever range you like to shoot at. Note: If you sight in at the furthest target, do not aim above the animal, as the 30-06 does not drop much.

-A great way for beginners to start this game is to use the following equipment: antlers for a call, semi automatic rifle (the sportster), the very first urine can, and a tree stand. Use these at a spot where there are some good deer. Note: Shotguns also work well.
-The best survival set is as follows. Start a career and go to Jaques Pine Lodge and store. Purchase the following: .30-06 bolt rifle, Alaskan Guide 3.5-10AO rifle scope, medium weight tent, any optical device (binoculars or spotting scope), tripod stand, hydration bladders (all), all food packs, the med kit, and the cover scent. Don't worry about not being able to carry all that equipment; it will all be useful soon, especially the tripod. Once you get to Needleleaf area you will hunt wolverines, which are pretty dangerous. The tripod will keep you out of their and other dangerous animal's reach. Also, you do not need a tree; just level ground. The tent will heal you overnight if you get stuck out there at night and are injured.
