Tikka T3 bolt action in 7-08 rem, or TC Venture bolt action weather shield in 7-08 rem, or Weatherby vanguard S2 bolt action in 7-08 rem. all 3 have an accuracy guarantee.

I love my 30-30 but that's partly because it's the only rifle I've deer hunted with and it's compact and lightweight and shoots good to 100 yards and has great knockdown. However if I had to choose one gun I would probably go with a .270. Not sure though, I've only ever shot a 270 once and have shot a 308 a few times but I can't tell which I would like better.
Haven't been this excited about deer season

...since last deer season

All great guns and calibers mentioned above, but it's really up to you and where you hunt.

If you're an ambidextrous shooter like myself that wants to fill the freezer, you might not op for a bolt gun. I have a Marlin lever gun in .35 Rem with a crisp, aftermarket trigger that's a tack driver. Even with a scope, I like it's balance, and it shows in how I shoot it offhand. Not bragging at all, I'm just saying that I can shoot it a lot better offhand than any other rifle I've bolt guns or my last, a single shot Handi-rifle in .270. However, if you hunt big fields, power lines, or cutovers from a shooting house you'll probably want a more flat shooting rifle. Don't go nuts over firepower, though. Excessive recoil and noise never helped anyone's shooting.

Hard to beat!
I love the 7-08, I also love the 270 WSM, also in a Winchester CRF.
