It appears the hammer is cocked on this lever gun.

Hopefully, they just levered out the remaining ammunition and then laid it down there for the photo with the hammer still in the rear position.

It's one of those times where they SHOULD go off half-cocked! LOL

On a marlin like that when the safety is on it is in a “half cocked” position but, that is more than half cocked so she can’t blame the safety on it. Hopefully it’s like others said and was just left in that position after cycling out excess rounds.

If you cycled out the rounds, why wouldn't you leave it open though... isn't that the normal thing to do?

If it has a cross bolt safety that is what a lot of folks do , not something I would do , with hammer guns the hammer is always the safety IMHO. S/FI! I can not tell from the picture if it has a cross bolt safety or not. Nice buck though.

Leaving it open leaves the lever in the down position, easier to break, damage or just get more dirt and stuff into the action. After cycling out ammo I always click the safety on and close the lever while leaving the hammer in the half cocked position.
