I saw a post on here asking what everyone will be using on Saturday morning. I will be using My marlin 1894 cowboy that is new to me and have never taken hunting. I thought it would be interesting to see how many of are you taking and what lever action will you all be taking out into the field on opening morning.

I've got my great-granddads Marlin 336 that I might hunt with some this year. I need to shoot it more at the range first though. I've taken a few deer with it but I'd love to get back to shooting it more. And now that I've got a ton of brass and powder for it I really don't have and excuse not to.

I might use my Savage 99 later in the year, but I take it opening morning.

Won't be able to make opening weekend but I will, as always, use my 308 BLR when I do get out.

Thanks for the replies, Interesting posts. And no problem on that reminder csddarden. Texas Dan, I Hope you get one on Saturday morning and break in that new 336. cow_doc I can relate I have a 336w too that I've had for some time I bought it at a pawn shop years ago, I've taken it hunting on only a handful of occasion and only have One kill with it. I need to change that and take it out more.

I'll have my Marlin 30/30 that I got for Christmas when I was 13. I'm 40 now. I'll also have my granfathers trusty Sears & Roebuck 30/30 as a backup.

My wife will be using her cut down lever action 30-30, her first rifle and hopefully her first deer with it this weekend.

Thanks. I bought my Marlin lever-action more as a "back to the basics" gun to use whenever I hunt the National Forest as I have done every Opening Day for many years now. No food plots or feeders, just me and my overall knowledge of deer and the deer woods as my tools for success. I even decided to leave off the scope since my shots have always been so limited while hunting the Forest. Heck, I took my first Forest buck more than 20 years ago with a shotgun. I've had several good practice sessions with it and feel comfortable with shots out to 100 yards, even though shots at less than half that distance are expected in the area of the Forest where I always hunt.

Good luck and safe hunting to everyone.

Yep, I'm shooting an old Marlin 30-30 that I put a Nikon 3x9 on, deadly. And my wife also likes shooting it and she's a little thing.

I'll be using my Marlin 1895 SBL 45-70 and hoping to take a deer finally with it. I've used it on hogs and coyotes and it does a number on 'em. I'm good to under 200 yards with it so I'm hoping to make it happen. Lever guns just feel good.
