If you could only have 3 guns for hunting all of North American game what would they be?  I've got 3 calibers.  A 243 win, 270 win, and a 338 win.  I guess that would cover all of the possible game, but if I had to do it over I would trade the 243 for a 223 rem and the 338 win for a 375 ruger.

Please dont let my wife see this if she thinks I only need three guns I'm in trouble.

Well if you are hunting rather than defending against zombies and the red hoard. You have to have a shotgun for birds and a rimfire for small game

Rem  870 pump 12 ga

Marlin model 70PSS   .22   http://www.marlinfirearms.com/Firearms/SelfLoading/70PSS.asp however there is much to be said for a 22 mag or 17 HMR I just dont have either of them right now.

The last gun would have to be a high power rifle.  I hunt most often with my
Encore 50 cal musket due to the laws here so I might have to take that but I'd like to take the .375 H&H barrel with FX3 6x42 for it as is shoots tighter than the 30-06 barrel (or may be its time to upgrade that 3-9 tascoWink).

 Yes, I know the Lott can sling a big chunk of lead a long distance, but so can a trebuchet!

they arent as accurate though, you aim for an area with that rock thrower. the smoke pole is more precise.

  That would do it.  I HAD a Rem 700 Classic in 7mmRM (first new centerfire rifle I ever bought) back in '82. After all these yrs I've found it's the only rifle/cartridge I would have ever needed.

Cost and availability of ammo not factored in, I'll take a .17 HMR, .300 Wby, Benelli SBE.
If we factor in ammo cost, and availability, I'll take .22lr, .270 or .300 win, and the Benelli.

A 12 gauge pump (Remington 870 preferred) with light to heavy loads will take care of all your bird shooting.  It will also handle small game about as well as a .22LR, if you use the larger shot sizes.
 
A rifle in the .308 to .338 range will take care of North American big game nicely.  Go for the .338 if you plan to do brown bear hunting.  Otherwise, the lesser calibers will probably do just as well and be a lot more fun to shoot.
 
A "varmint/PD"  rifle in the .204, .223, or .22-250 persuasion will round out your battery.  I don't do this type of hunting, so will leave the choice up to those who do.

NEVER to eat...
after watching some of the largest migrations in the country feeding from the sewer ponds in Kalifornia, I took duck off the menu.
