  1. Can you use handguns in Ohio for deer? If so what cal?
  2. Yep sure can 44/45/357 and I don't know. Has to have atleast a 6 inch barrel. I recommend if u are planing to hunt here get a regulations book and READ it befor u hunt that is if u can read being from Michigan!!!! LOL jk

    Outdoor Hub mobile, the outdoor information engine

  3. Straight wall cartridges ...minimum. 357?...:D
  4. Handgun - with 5-inch minimum length barrel, using straight-walled cartridges .357 caliber or larger.

    This was taken off of page 9 in the regs.
  5. I would suggest you read up on Ohio conceal carry laws too. along with transporting a pistol in a car.

    Also, you may not carry two firearms when deer hunting. and a conceal carry weapon may NOT be used for hunting.
  6. you can, but unless you shoot a handgun better than I do you may as well just shoot a bow. lol
  7. A friend has a deer path that he stakes out every year with his .357 revolver. He sets up just before sundown and drops a yearling doe within an hour as a local group routinely head for a nearby pond before settling down for the night.

    And the corn fed deer here in Ohio are delicious...
  8. [​IMG]Would something like this be allowed?It's a fifty cal. muzzle loader with a 12 inch barrel.
  9. Just answered my own question.Looking at the regs it states no muzzle loadin hand guns.:tsk:
  10. Get a .50 S&W Mag barrel. That round will stop a deer. If you can swap barrels.
  11. Nope just astraight up muzzle loader.It is an old Knight disc that has been cut down to a hand gun.Although my my magnum research BFR in .45-70 is perfectly legal.
  12. The S&W .500 mag is an outstanding round along with their .460 Mag. Two stoppers for sure. S&W makes the 460 Magnum in several configurations for hunting. Along with a good handgun scope and mounts, makes these guns a real deer hunting standout.
