Thank You I just look at the .223 and it looks pretty cool and what kind of stuff can you add to?
and I took a hunters safety class and I know how to use a gun I just don't know how to hunt for deer and such or what I need to do it.
Thank You for the info
There's a lot of nightvision scopes, regular scopes with spotlight attachments, etc stuff for night hunting available for them.
If you find one that takes a removable magazine, there are higher capacity magazines available. A bipod would be nice to add to any bolt action or semi auto hunting rifle as well.
AR-15s definitely win with customizability but some states do not allow ANY hunting with assault weapons, so I would check your state's regulations first. But for general target practice and pinging, an AR-15 is pretty fun. Although for the price of one oftentimes, you can pick up 2 or 3 rifles.
And yeah, just pick up some hunting books or subscribe to some magazines. There's plenty of instructional videos out there as well. Just set aside a day for some researching and learning!
I myself hunt big game with a Remington Model 700 .308 as I hunt elk and deer. Elk take a little more than a .270 to bring down, otherwise I would have purchased a left-hand bolt action .270 for myself back a few years ago. Which reminds me, if you shoot left-handed, be prepared to pay a few hundred dollars more on bolt-action rifles
