I’m going to be using the crossbow,muzzle loader & 35. Marlin. To say I’m pumped is an understatement.

Plan on using my Thompson Center Cherokee 45 cal for muzzle loading season and will probably go with the Henry single shot in 357 mag during regular season. If I do any archery hunting I will be using my Bear recurve.

I have done the trigger work on the Henry myself, it works just the way I like and as far as I am concerned it is absolutely perfectly safe. I got the weight of pull down to 4.5 lbs and tested it every way I know how for safety with a primed empty case.

I have everything sighted in now. My first big game hunt might be Adirondack early bear on the first weekend in October with my Remlin 336 BL 30/30 (fiber optic sights).  First deer hunt might be a mid-October Friday afternoon hunt up there with my Barnett Recruit crossbow.

Most likely, my first deer hunt will be in mid-October with my T/C Omega 50 cal (Redfield 2-7 scope) ML.  For opening weekend of NZ gun season, it will depend on the weather.  If it is rainy & windy, I will go with my 30/30, if there is no chance of rain or snow, I will use my father in law's scoped Marlin 336 30/30.  Otherwise, I will go with my scoped Ruger M77 30/06.

Back home in WNY, my first deer hunt will be opening day of crossbow in early November.  I will use either my new Centerpoint Sniper, or my old Barnett Recruit, depending on the weather and where I hunt.

Opening day of gun at home (shotgun only zone), it will be either my scoped Marlin 512, Ithaca 37 16 ga, or open sighted smooth bore, short-barreled Remimgton 870.

My last deer hunt of the year, and hopefully my first of 2021 on new years day, will be again be with my T/C Omega 50 cal.  

I just did the math, that works out to 8 different weapons.  Coincidentally, that is how many tags I will have for the year (7 deer and 1 bear).  One with each would be cool.

Mission Hype Compound

Mission MXB 400 Crossbow

Marlin 30-30/sometimes Savage 25/06 and Dan Wesson .44 handgun

My dad did hint around that my grandpa used a certain rifle that he never took a deer with, that my dad said would be the best if I did.  I think its a 7mm Mauser.  Could have spelt that wrong, and made it up but I believe i am correct.

Mauser.......Mouser is a cat. LOL

And a 7mm Mauser is a 7x57 if you are looking for ammo.

Give it a name, apply human sentiment, and its no longer a wild animal its a Disney character.

Whats the chest girth on them pussies?

Not sure.  The big one is an American bob-tail.  We have 3 now.  My wife and girls just brought the little one home a couple weeks ago.

They remind me of a few we had growing up.

While I appreciate your dad's sentiment, I would avoid a gun that grandpa didn't kill a deer with.  That's just bad juju.  Good luck either way!

You don’t know the details.

I haven’t shot a deer in 4 yrs, whats the difference at this point.

I knew you hadn't got a deer in awhile.  Don't add bad juju to the mix too!

There are no flies on the 7X57 Mauser cartridge, with modern bullets and loaded ammo it is just about the ideal Deer round, a virtual duplicate of the 7mm08.

As for the rifle itself I can't say but if it is a German Mauser 98 and in good condition you have a fine piece that would be a very capable big game rifle.

Remington Mountain Rifle in 7MM08,   Winchester M70 in .280 Rem,  and perhaps my M-1 Garand will be in the blind for relatively close shots where I feel confident with the issue sights..

My muzzleloader is a vintage TC Hawken .50 cal. with a tang peep sight that my ex wife gave me for my birthday in 1976...

I haven't fired a shotgun slug since they legalized rifles in my area and I'd prefer to keep it that way...Hehehe...

Biggest mistake i made was selling my Hawkens's .I had one in .50 and one in .58 cal. The .58 was a tac driver all day long.
