Top 5 Hunting rifles for this Season

The countdown to hunting season has begun, and the clock is ticking. But have you chosen the right tool for the job? The search for the perfect hunting rifle is an essential part of your preparations, and we’re here to simplify it for you. In this article, we’re unveiling the top 10 rifles that will enhance your hunting experience. So, if you’re wondering which rifle to hunt with this year, check out these rifles, your sure to find one you love.

Bolt Actions

Bolt action rifles have been the go-to choice for hunters due to their reliability, precision, and durability. Their simple yet efficient design allows for accurate follow-up shots, making them ideal in most hunting conditions. With a reputation for exceptional accuracy, these rifles remain the top pick for hunters aiming for precision and success in the field. Here are our favorites this year:

Remington 700

Obviously this had to be on our list. The Remington 700 has been around for generations for a reason. Hell, even the U.S. Marine Corps still uses a variation, the M24. Chambered in damn near every conceivable caliber, this trusty ol’ beast can be found in any gun shop across America. This rifles the Harley-Davidson Sportster of rifles – you want a different stock? There’s something out there for you. Want to kit it out with picatinny rails and be the tacticoolest bro in the woods? You can do that too. With as many variations as California has genders, there’s one for you!

Remington 700

Tikka T3x (Sako)

The Finnish know a thing or two about accurate and durable rifles, just ask any Russian about “The White Death”. The Tikka T3x is an excellent choice for anyone hunting this year. Chambered in everything from.223 rem to 7mm rem mag, there’s a caliber for you. With a tight, low tolerance trigger and a smooth bolt draw, Sako made a rifle that’ll put rounds down range accurately and consistently. No one likes a sloppy shot, especially when you’ve got a trophy buck in your crosshairs.



Although Semi-Auto’s aren’t typically used as much for hunting, their popularity is growing. When hunting small game your 300 Win Mag might be a bit overkill, but a AR-15 or AR-10 platform might just be the thing you need.

Sig Sauer 716i Tread

Sig Sauer’s take on the AR-10 platform is next level. Chambered in 7.62 NATO, the 716i is perfect for that versatile firearm you’ve been itching for. Sig put in an excellent trigger for crisp and clean trigger pulls, making follow up shots easier and quicker. Great for deer hunting and even some hog hunting, this rifle will put a smile on your face!

AR-15 (in 6.5 Grendel)

While this one might be a bit vague, let me explain. Almost every firearm manufacturer has their own AR-15. So pick your favorite. What important here is the caliber, 6.5 Grendel is one of those rounds that make you scratch your head, thinking “Isn’t that a bit small for hunting deer?” Nope. This lil’ guy carries enough stopping power to ethically kill a deer at quite some range. The extremely flat trajectory is just an added bonus. With the ability to ‘reach out and touch something’ at a 1000 yards, anything rockin’ this round is sure to impress.


Lever Action

Wishing you could go back in time to the Wild West, away from all the nonsense of today? Me too… While we can’t whisk ourselves back to the Great Frontier, there’s still a piece of it with us today, the good ol’ lever action rifle.

Marlin 1895 SBL

Hunting some larger game? Such as Brown Bear? Or even a T-Rex? The Marlin 1895 SBL in .45-70 is sure to put down anything you need put down. A favorite among Alaskan hunters and Chris Pratt, this rifle comes with a picatinny on top for easy scope mounting and even a threaded barrel for your muzzle accessories. The larger loop is perfect for those colder days when you need your gloves on.


As we look ahead to the 2023 hunting season, the choices available to hunters have never been more exciting. From the reliable bolt-action classics to the versatility of semi-automatics and the nostalgic charm of lever-action rifles, there’s a perfect firearm for every type of hunter.

Whether you’re stalking big game, varmint hunting, or simply enjoying a day in the woods, your rifle is your most crucial tool. We hope our selection of the top 5 hunting rifles for 2023 has provided you with valuable insights to make an informed choice. Remember, the best rifle for you ultimately depends on your specific needs and preferences.

As you embark on your hunting adventures this year, stay safe, respect nature, and cherish the moments spent outdoors. May your chosen rifle serve you faithfully and bring success to your hunts. Happy hunting in 2023!
