Dec. 2019 - In the fall of 2019, Savage Arms set out to debunk the age-old question that has stirred debate in hunting camps and gun clubs for decades: If you could own just one rifle, what would it be?

After a hard hunted, boots on the ground season, we’ll let you decide for yourself.

Dec. 2019 - Iris McKean, a 15-year old endurance athlete, and deer hunter breaks-away from a busy school schedule to chase her first-ever cow elk in the famous Missouri River Breaks located in Northern Montana

Dec. 2019 - Veteran and former 82nd Airborne Paratrooper, Ron Taylor, takes the Traveling AccuFit on his first hunt ever in hopes of lowering the coyote population around his home town in Lincoln, NE. Being in the military for several years, Ron is no stranger when it comes to firearms.

Nov. 2019 - Stephanie Dinger, a banker, wife, mother, and hunter - breaks away from a busy schedule to chase rutting whitetail with her husband and father-in-law in her home state of Nebraska.

Nov. 2019 - Hunting buddies, Marty Hogan and Miles Fitzsimmons, head west to the Cowboy State to chase mule deer and North America’s fastest land animal in a high stake, multiple species hunt, with non-resident tags.

Nov. 2019 - Gene O’Kelley, 3rd generation International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) member, purchases a non-resident whitetail tag and heads East to Aikens South Carolina to sit in a tree stand for a few days in hopes of seeing some pre-rut activity.

Oct. 2019 - Two brothers, Austin Nimmo (27) & Garrett Nimmo (30), make a hail mary play as they pursue a mature bull elk on public land with an over the counter tag that they bought 36 hours before the hunt.

Oct. 2019 - Brittany Waldman has benefited in many aspects of her life from the guidance of mentors. Through sports, college, and her professional career, a series of advisors—both formal and informal—helped direct her progress and focus her passions. Now it's her turn to pass on her knowledge to a young hunter. 

Sep. 2019 - Rich spends most of his days fixing fence, moving cattle, and adding to his tally of wild pigs that he shoots on the Texas property where he works as a ranch hand. “Some people make New Year’s Resolutions about losing weight or saving money. My resolution this year was to kill 50 pigs. The one I killed with the Traveling Savage was number 39. If you’ll excuse me, I have some more work to do.”

Sep. 2019 - At this stop of the Traveling AccuFit, Ian quickly familiarizes himself with the rifle, finds his AccuFit, and promptly confirms the rifle’s accuracy out to 600 yards. He then sets out to work with four different shooters - their shooting skill sets ranging from novice to proficient - to evaluate, and prove, the rifle’s versatility.

Sep. 2019 - Ben Gorman knows his way around custom and semi-custom guns. An accomplished big-game hunter and owner of iconic Wyoming apparel company ShedNecks, Gorman collected the rifle, and mounted the Bushnell scope. Gorman specializes in matching rifles with tack-driving bullets. In the case of the Traveling AccuFit, chambered in .280 Ackley Improved, Savage chose Hornady Precision Hunter 162 gr. ELD-X.

Sep. 2019 - By sending a single rifle around the country, hunting different animals with different hunters, Savage Arms hopes to answer a question that’s stirred debate in hunting camps and gun clubs for decades: If you could own just one gun, what would it be?
