Yup bears everywhere, I also have a farm in eastern nc just below the dismal and that is where I hunt and shoot. More bear than deer. I love my levers and favorite caliber is my 4570s. Marlin and ruger.

Welcome to the forum! I read some of the info on your link, and it said there are only TWO natural lakes in the whole state of Virginia? Is that right? I guess the others are man made/dam reservoirs?

I was thinkin maybe it was the Okefenokee swamp. Welcome aboard from the swamps of Virginia. Ive been to the Okefenokee swamp and went thru it on a boat it was way cool. Should be able to find a use for a 44 Henry in the swamp.

Welcome from KC, where it's getting kinda swamy, with 8-10" of rain since last Friday!

Congrats on the Brass Henry! Look forward to hearing how you like it and how it shoots for you!

Hope Hurricane MIchael spares you!

Thanks for sharing your pictures. I can't get enough of seeing brass octagon Henry rifles. They are so beautiful! You got a fine piece of character in your stock too. Suggest you might want to get a coat of Renaissance Wax on the brass and wood. https://www.amazon.com/Renaissance-XTL- ... ssance+wax
