    Del Shafer 1994 Columbiana Long Bow 163 5/8

    Back then it was in the top 50 archery harvests.

    Hanging weight 205 pounds.
    It's on the wall.

    This past season I bagged an 8 point just about a half hour after opening day morning on my
    little 15 acre woods with my Marlin 45-70 and 300 grain Federal h.p. ammo.

    Browning Midas bow, carbon fiber arrows.
    I've taken pro'ly 60 + Ohio deer, most with muzzle loaders, shotguns with slugs, and a few
    with rifles, my 6.8 s.p.c. AR.
    Ohio only allowed certain modern rifles in certain calibers fairly recently.

    My "go to" rifle is a Marlin 45-70.
    I have many other firearms.

    I want to bag a deer with my Smith 8 3/8" .41 magnum.:D

    I used to hunt professionally in the Territory using my model 95 45/70 Marlin underlever. Loved that gun. Wish I had not traded it now. I don't like the pistol grip on the newer model.

    I agree. I had an older Marlin like your old one and took black bear in Canada.

    Sadly I got poor and sold it.
    When I got a bit less poor I bought the one I have now.

    Got an 8 point with the half hour into the 1st morning of gun season.

    Bang, flop!
