I have a Marlin lever-action .44 mag. I'm too old and impatient for tracking and dragging.

I'd really like to have a Henry .44 mag....but I'd probably baby the thing and never take it into the weeds and briars.

Most of the guys I know use a 270 but they are younger and more willing to take shots that I just don't feel comfortable taking anymore.

Air Rifle.

Nothing wrong with any of the choices. Personal preference. I think a 270 is hard to beat. I use a ML more than anything, even during modern gun.

It's blasphemy to some but I bow hunt for rifle season. I did same thing back in day for Michigan gun season" shotgun zone"
That being said I picked up my grandpa's old win model 94 30-30 last year and have shot it a bit and love it. Might take it out this fall for grandpa!
