Re: M1 or sks for deer and hogs???
oh yeah, the garand will certainly do the job on just about anything on this continent!
gotta love the '06. In states where you have a 3 round limit or whatever, you'd have to get a 2-round clip to legally hunt with it. Here in WA, 8 rounds is legal though, don't know about other places.
M1 carbine is a fun gun but as far as power is concerned, not so much... SKS has a huge advantage in the caliber department.
