    Marlinowners members pick chambering for fall bear hunt

    I have an fall hunt booked in Idaho for black bear. I will take a lever gun and a bolt rifle. I will use the lever gun in the orchards-- shots to 75 yards, you pick the chambering for me!!

    buckeye -

    What, no 375? Haven't decided which Marlin to use this fall, the .45-70 or .375Win, but my wife will probably carry the .30-30 (defensive use only as she won't have a license).

    Then again, the .300 Win Mag and 7mm Rem Mag are not out of the running for me, either. Fortunately I don't have to decide right away!

    CH...

    Did you say your wife had some form of tangible proof that was OK when you were looking into this? I can just see Joe Forrester playin' a power trip out and taking this for all he can ! ! !

    Not rying to rain on your parade but I'm just giving a last thought here . . .

    Voted for the .45-70, 'cause that's what I'm hunting with! The Guide Gun for the close-quarters stuff, and the 7mm mag with the 3.5-10x scope will be available when I'm glassing the big meadows and cross-canyon stuff.

    Who knows Maybe this will be the year I actually shoot a bear instead of just looking at them?

    Good luck - I like the orchard idea. Have tried that myself, but the bears I was after were nocturnal orchard raiders and I never got a shot.

    Regards, Guy

    A Blackie?

    Hell, they ain't no bigger'n my cousin Albert.

    I believe I could take him with a .35Rem.

    Anything smaller'd just piss him off.

    Anything bigger would be just plain mean.

    That seemed a little biased. I can believe you put the 30-30 in and not the 444. I plan on using the 444 for an Alaska black bear this year, or definitely in the spring, when I've been there a year and get the residence prices.
