Hey everybody, Im possibly going deer hunting in Alabama next season. I've never been. The only rifles I own are an AR15 carbine and a. 308 M14 Socom (shorter barrel). I know the M14 works against people, but how does it stand against the deer in this area? Also, since I am unfamiliar with the terrain, what optics do you all recommend? There's an ACOG 3x on it now. Thanks.
