.45-70 Gov't

How many others are using "shoulder fired artillery" this year?

I already took a nice doe with my Marlin Guide gun 45-70 this year, since I bought it I have used nothing else for deer, and hogs and I took a Bison with it. I love the thing.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I am not using one but I loaded some Barnes 250gr TSX-FN-FB for a buddy who is hunting Iowa.
He has a Henry rifle and I was impressed with it's accuracy.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.
