Ohio rifle sales?

Post by Sodbuster on Sat Dec 01, 2012 9:49 am

Always wondered in a state like Ohio that doesn't allow rifle hunting for deer, do your local sporting goods stores carry many high powered rifles and do they sell very many of them?

Think most of them sell rifles, i'm guessing they sell a good amount of them. Most just use them for groundhogs, yote, and pigs. We have a few rifles, but most are either muzzloader, .22's and shotguns. My dad had a .300 mag, but sold it earlier this year for a turkey gun.

almost everyone i know owns a few rifles ! I think were not aloud to use them for deer since we have a high population! over every hill is a farm ir a few houses! Plus i think that if we were aloud to use them there wouldnt be near as many big bucks around! it would be to easy! with the shotgun your chances are lower.

just because we have rifles doesn't mean that it's easy to hunt. and plus, just in our are of PA there are prolly 20 plus bucks taken over 140" every year, just sayin. Also, i think part of the reason you guys aren't allowed to use rifles is because you have alot flatter country side than we do. And, there aren't that many shots over 150 yds unless in an open field.

There are very few kill shots around here a year that are over 150 yards.

I wasnt saying that it would be easy to hunt with rifles i just meant that allot more big bucks would get shot! if everyone could shoot 150 yrds accurately! and yes we have flatter country and lots of houses around so i figure thats why rifles are not aloud! I know i could have shot allot more of deer this past week would i have been able to shoot 150-200 yrds accurately! with shotguns you can usually shoot about 120 yrds and hit a 5 inch group but after that the shots are not real accurate at all.
