I've considered the 45-70 Guide Gun for deer and black bear in north Georgia, but my Marlin 35 Remington has too strong a grip on my heart. I think the 45-70 would be a natural brush gun.
There is in life perhaps one fleeting moment when the courage, dedication and resolve of one man gambling against all odds will alter the destiny of nations.

you have a great gun and in a great caliber! a nice straight walled cartridge like the 45-70 is a great candidate for reloading, especially in the marlin which can be loaded to a higher level then what is generally commercially availible. I have a marlin lever in .444 marlin and a handi rifle in 45-70 they are well suited for medium to close range hunting of all game in the lower 48.

I've got a Marlin 1895M .450 Marlin which is very similar to yours. I love it!! I consider it a little overkill for deer hunting, but bought the gun to hopefully one day fulfill my dream of hunting Grizzley.

Proud owner of a Guide Gun for about 10 years. Winchester factory 300 gr HP's work fine for thin skinned game. My hand loaded/personally cast 340 gr flat point at 2100 fps is a beast. Large (300+ lbs) feral hogs drop in their tracks.
