So I have never rifle hunted, I've always been an archer. I've shot my dad's Ruger 7mm many times but that's the extent of my rifle shooting. My knowledge is very minimal also on what loads are necessary for what game. I know that on larger game heavier may be ncessary.
I'm moving to Alaska this spring/early summer and I want to do move to doing more rifle hunting instead of archery. I plan on hunting black bear, caribou, moose, grizzlies, sheep, and maybe goats (once I become a resident of course). Is there one rifle that I can purchase and become proficient with that I can use on sheep and moose/grizzlies?
I know with sheep you're looking at longer shots and steep angles so a flat shooting rifle is important but with larger quarry a heavier rifle is more important.
What are my options? Or do I really need two different firearms? Is there anything else I need to consider?
