Members, please take notice of the following important information provided by one of our good members HWL, the rifle our good friend MC Heunis describes is the following type of rifle as pointed out by HWL...
"
Hi gert....
MC is not shooting a "Austrian" Werder rifle, but a "Bavarian" Werder rifle.

I think the admin can and should correct this.


Georg"

Thank you kindly HWL for this correction, it is very much appreciated ....

Love these posts and the whole concept. I am not sure if the Boers used them but would a Sharps 1874 rifle be appropriate for one of these hunts?

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
