Good morning gentlemen, well, to answer questions, here goes!

I am 67 now, PD has not kicked me down yet.
I live in SW Colorado, south of Durango and four miles north of the New Mexico border in the midst of the Ute Indian Reservation. Lions abound here, my one acre compound sits fenced in farm and reservation, and twice they have scaled the 6’ chain link fencing.

If you will read it, I will write up and tell the story of hunting the big lion - not by intention with the 22 S&W.

If I’m allowed, I can send a hunt story link that is appropriate for this upcoming Halloween night. But, please just follow my instructions to one of our local public radio stations...

It was my first solo Mule deer hunt. we lived 48 miles from town out on the Navajo Nation and I was thirteen years old. Go to ravennarratives.org, then, up at top, click on stories, then scroll down to the tenth story “running from aliens”. I told this story over two consecutive nights to 500 people, Happy Halloween!

As to certifying that Butch built my rifles, the .270 is in his first handful of custom built guide rifles, because it is bitch ugly, perhaps the only one. Fiberglass stocks were ridiculed in those days in comparison to the wood still available. Butch built it to last a lifetime, indestructible...The 22-250 came later as I could afford to trade weeks in elk camp for gunsmithing. Would something in writing from Butch suffice or is sending the rifles off for inspection with any identifying subsequent marking by him better?

I thank you for your conversations and input. Regardless, it’s a pleasure to share a bit of time with you.
If the site moderators find these musings to be incorrectly posted, I will act at their direction.

Hey Joe,

Welcome aboard!

I hope that this finds you in good health and a solid long prognosis.

I would encourage you to document all of your tales so that we can relive your hunts as long as the internet allows. I'm guessing that many members would wish the same. I look forward to it.

Best,

Steve

Welcome to AH, DurangoJ.............Can't think of a better place to sell your rifles. Sorry for the need to do so. There is a lot of competition in the price ranges you listed, but I have no doubt your rifles will provide top value..............good luck with the sale........FWB

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

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...
