Just get you a good centerline muzzle loader. Some of those things are so powerful that you might as well be out there with a 30-30.

Welcome,

Truth be told, their is not a Booner behind every tree here.....Just every other one!
The deer hunting up and down the river is great. Nothing but agriculture and big fat deer.

As far as no rifles, get your self a short-range rifle (slug gun or muzzleloader) and get used to short and intense gun seasons. Better yet, if you don't already shoot a bow buy one. Our bow season is plenty long with no limit on does.

Good Hunting,

Actually leases aren't that bad once you get off the beaten path. Leasing has only really started to take off in the area where I own land and $20 and less per acre seems to be common.
