I hunted opening day of firearm season last year with my Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum. Great shooting cowboy rifle that feels really good. About 9:30 in the morning I took a 5.5 year old doe that weighed in at 170 pounds. She was bigger than the 8 pointer my nephew had taken just a few minutes before. I will still do 90% of my hunting with a bow, but I love my rifle too.
Too cool! I believe that was partly the intent of the measure, to allow additional opportunities for deer to be killed.
I`m more a Winchester guy than a Marlin, but I understand the Marlins are great rifles.
Myself, I have a Winchester 94 in .44 mag. I`ve yet to take it afield, but plan to this upcoming season.
You`ll share, if you kill a deer with that rifle this season I hope.
