I'm not sure what I can use for hunting purposes.
This is posted in federal crime so I can give you the federal law answer. Under federal law an "antique firearm" is not considered a prohibited firearm. This includes black powder muzzle loading weapons that do not use fixed ammunition. This does NOT include black powder weapons that have interchangeable parts allowing the use of regular ammunition like the Thompson Contender that has barrels for black powder as well as modern rifle and shotgun ammunition. Weapons like the TC are prohibited.
You still have state law to deal with. Talk to a local lawyer or post this in criminal defense for an answer about Ohio law. Weapons that are legal under federal law may still be illegal under state law.See question
I want a hand gun in my home for protection
If you have been convicted of a crime punishable by a year or more in prison or jail, regardless of the actual sentence you received, you are a convicted felon. It doesn't matter if the crime was violent or non-violent. In your case you received a suspended sentence of one year. That means the crime was punishable by at least one year of incarceration. That is a felony. Federal law makes it a crime punishable by up to ten years in prison if you to possess a firearm or ammunition. Do not get a firearm. Talk to a local lawyer to see if there is a way to get your firearms rights restored.See question
How can an entity file charges or a complaint if there is no way for them to possibly show up in court? Don't I have the right to face my accuser? If the "victim" of the crime is the state wouldn't there be a conflict of interest since the prosecu...
Facing your accuser means the sixth amendment right to confrontation. What that means is that you have a right to have the witnesses against you testify in person at trial rather than by affidavit. It does not mean that you can rob corporations and states without consequences simply because they are not living people. I don't think your conflict argument is going to go very far. If you are charged with a crime hire a lawyer. Let someone who is trained in legal issues handle the legal issues.See question

When I was 19 I was thrown under the bus by my boss. I was young and did as she asked me to do and next thing I knew I was receiving a phone call from the FBI telling me I had committed forgery. I went to court and explained to the judge what ha...
The fact that the FBI was involved suggests this was a federal offense. If that is the case there is no way to expunge or seal a federal conviction. You can apply for a pardon from the president, but those are rare. If you decide to seek a pardon, you should hire a lawyer with actual experience with pardons.See question

Got a dui six years ago. I heard Canada is strict with situations like this, what about Taiwan?
Contact the Taiwanese consulate and ask. Article 18 of the Republic of China (not the Peoples' Republic of China) Immigration Act allows exclusion for conviction of crimes in another country. The consulate can tell you whether a DUI will exclude you.See question
