I was wanting to shoot a long way hunting… Then I got 'round to thinkin' all this technology stands a good chance of stealing what most of us are, most but all of the time, doing it… So mateies, when I don't need that Sako I've been eyeing up for two years then what should I carry outta the house in Hill Country in Texas or when visiting Tim over in Louisiana by the Mississippi? What do you reckon of, say, a Henry lever action Big Boy .44 Magnum? Or any other ideas?
Oh, and happy Christmas all of you!

It all depends on what you're hunting. That .44 would be a good brush gun. Good enough for short range deer and maybe hogs too. I knew a guy that once had a Ruger .44 carbine that he used deer hunting. I'd buy the Henry just because it's a cool gun and looks great. Good luck with it.

Go for it

I have a Marlin 44 magnum and it is one of my favorites. I would still buy a Henry 44 also. A 300 grain Hornady round will put down any 4 legged animal in the USA. If you do your part.

44

The gun would be great to shoot in brush and short range, and fun to shoot. What more could you ask for.

.30-30 win

is still a good round, IMO. Good availability and pricing on it too. Win Model 94 in .30-30 would be good. But a 1886 in .45-70 could be fun. Or a 1892 in .44. I've thought about the Henry big boy myself though. All good choices, I think.
