Hello 1984

I'm a newbe and was reading thru the welcome section.
I've been thru the upper NY area on I 81. That is pretty country. I've hunted with Marlin for years. Very comfortable to handle and to carry. My center-fire hunting has been in NE Pennsylvania and the lower portion of Michigan. The 30-30 was always enough for the areas that I hunted. I own a .35 rem. but haven't hunted with it as yet.
I'm a Yankee from the Buckeye State where center-fire rifle are not legal (yet - maybe 2013). Here in my state, we hunt deer with Muzzle Loaders, Shot-Gun Slugs and some Hand Guns.

Legal for Deer in Ohio

Currently, the legal firearms are; any shotgun with a single slug, any muzzle loader of 38 cal. or larger and/or a hand gun with at least a 5" barrel that is 357 or larger, straight wall case. There have been open meetings with the ODNR where they are considering legalizing rifles/carbines with the same pistol rounds. It may or may not happen in 2013???
Here is a link to the list of legal cartridges.

As for the ethical use of some of the listed cartridges - I'll let you decide.
