Get ready for hunting season with rifles specifically designed for both small- and big-game hunting. Before choosing a rifle, consider what type of animals you intend to hunt. For hunting rabbits, raccoons, squirrels and other small-game creatures, .22 rifles are an efficient choice, while a .22 LR rifle is suited for long-range hunting that occurs over greater distances. For hunting larger animals, like deer, elk and moose, you'll want to select a rifle that can handle cartridges big enough to kill an animal with just 1 shot.
If your goal is precision shooting, target rifles are your best bet. A target rifle is designed with various accuracy enhancing features to help you achieve a spot-on, impeccable shot, whether you're out at the shooting range or in the field hunting.
