    Anything still native to north America can be killed with an 06.

    Your capabilities will have the most impact.

    New or old? Old, maybe it has had alot of rounds through it. New, should last a long time. Hank Williams, Jr. has quite a collection of 1895 Winchesters. It was Teddy Roosevelts favorite rifle as well.

    As noted...anything in N. America can be taken with an '06.

    The biggest factor will be how effectively you shoot open sights.

    30-06 you say? Yeah that will never work on anything in Alaska, you might want to get it and save it for trips down south whitetail hunting.
