  1. Marlin 1895g 45-70 topped with a monarch 3x9x40. Handload using 300 gr. Nosler partition.
  2. Up until a few years ago I usually always used open sights including with my own 1895g. Then my eyes got old and I was forced to put on optics. As long as your your comfortable with open sights, I say go for it. I always thought it was quicker to get on target and easier to follow what was happening after the shot.
  3. Looks good. Didn't realize Mossberg was making lever actions.
  4. Try making a index line across the top of the receiver and the barrel. If it keeps locking up the same with the lines lined up I don't see a problem.
  5. I shoot 209 in my encore through a clean barrel. I find that I tighter grouping by weighing the charge. I shoot a 100g volumetric which weighs out at 70g. The conversions are on their web sight.
  6. Commercial brand Permethrin is good but gets expensive. I get the 10% Permethrin animal dip online and mix it 19:1 with distilled water. Just as effective and a lot cheaper to use. The only difference is it has a slightly different odor. Been using it for several years without a single tick.
  7. Never hunted Pochuck, but you might want to try Sterling Forest. It has a lot more land to hunt.
  8. Looks like maybe some sort of deer and chupacabra hybrid.
