When I lived in Ohio it was shotgun only. Now I hear you can use a rifle if it has a straight cartridge.


So a 30-30 is OK but no .308?

No, a 30/30 doesn't have a straight cartridge. A 44 or 45/70 does, 357 as well.

Wow, I looked in every field along the river I could get in to. My ex wife lived 4-5 houses south of 316 on 104. I hunted points down there too. A good friend Iived in Commercial Point & kept tabs on what fields were plowed, etc. I guess everything changes. Down here in Florida it's like there is a contest to see how many BS apartments, condos, & warehouses they can build in a year. I am hoping for a crash to slow things down & keep the idiots from moving down here.

A 30 30 does not have a straight case. The Ohio law state the case has to be .348 or larger straight case

I bought 35 acres here 45 yrs ago. I was 16 miles from town, now I am 2 miles from town. The deer are so concentrated around my place they are starting to mutate. lot of white deer, and really deformed racks.

Things change I guess. Last deer I shot was in Iowa with a Steven's bolt action loaded with a 12 gauge slug. That was probably in 1973. Shotguns and muzzle loaders were all that was permissible back then. I just looked at Iowas laws today and you can use a center fire straight wall ammo only .357 or larger.

We drove from IL to NE GA and back two weeks ago and counted 45 road kills on the whole trip. It’s the rut of course. Most were does with just a few with visible antlers. We didn’t see any bucks with big racks at all. They seem to be smart crossing roads.

Last year SC harvested 179,000 total, which was 21,000 less than the year before. With the human population explosion there are hundreds/thousands of acres that can't be hunted. The result is dead deer on city streets.

You very seldom see any big racks for VERY LONG when they are killed they seem to vansioh rather quickly /
