200 yards is NOT A Woods rifle.

I would vote for a 444p lever action or a guide gun in 45/70. A low profile variable on either would be my idea of perfect.

If the caliber performs well in "woods" situations, then its performance or lack of at 200 yds really shouldn't matter. Actually, one could argue that the .35 Whelen may in fact be the perfect "woods" gun because not only can it perform probably as well as any of the others in the brush, it can also be used with confidence at longer ranges. The single shot versions are short and fairly lightweight making them maneuverable and easier to carry on those long public land walks and when crawling under logs and through tight brush. AND, you maintain the ability to use it in both modern firearm and primitive. Because of the overall performance and versatility the .35 hands down gets my vote as the perfect woods/palmetto gun. .444 would be 2nd.

You asked for other people’s idea of what their perfect “woods gun” would be. Why do you have to respond to ppl by telling them that their opinion is wrong?

I hunt with a 30/30 pretty much 90% of the time when rifle hunting. Never lost a deer I hit, had a few misses but killed quit a few with it. I don't like to hunt wide open woods or long shooting lanes because I prefer hunting thickets. IMO 30/30 is the best gun for that job.

If I went with a shotgun, I'd go 12guage and not 20guage.

I think there is some good discussion on this thread if we can stay open-minded and civil to one another.
