I would never kill bambi, I would rather kill his mom and aunts.
That should be some good eating.

Good enough to fight a war... good enough to put dinner on the table.

Pretty tender... but a little gamey. Tastes vaguely of pronghorn.

....yeah-it is a bit frustrating when I see a nice big 5 or more point buck-slowly,casually ,without fear stroll across the field behind me nibbling on leftover corn as he heads for the treeline...less than 100 yards off....and I KNOW I could pick him off with any of my milsurps with ease from my back deck :roll:

........I wont tell if you dont....... :bigrin: ....and I'll share if you help... :rotflma: ;)

In 71, I was going to college on the GI Bill - which didn't leave a lot of $ left over for eats, and jobs were scarce that winter. My pal had his Dad's Carcano, and we lived on deer all that winter. I don't recall Bambi being any less deceased for having been whacked with a lowly I-talian rifle.

My sweetie could cut-n-wrap with the best of 'em! :bigrin: Being a poor starving student that winter wasn't so bad. I had a job at a liquor store/pizza place & we usually had a bottle o' vino to make the deer lions slide down a little easier...

No TV so we sat & talked a lot. She had a V-Dub & a tank of gas would last forever. We'd cruise the upper crust neighborhoods & pretend we were all rich. The dumb stuff you don't do just to pass the time...

Lord have mercy, my sweetie was a cutie! Ah, them was the days! :bigrin: SW

Yeah, prove it!!!!!

Well, ok, you asked for it.
Below is a picture of moi, aged 14 years.
The deer is hanging in the entrance of my parents garage.
At the time, it was largest blacktail ever taken in the area it was shot in.
158 lbs., field dressed.
We got 113 lbs. of meat out of that little puppy and I still have the horns (somewhere around here).
The gun I'm holding is my brother's 1895 Chilean Mauser. The stock is original, just cut down.
It was the gun I used to bag that deer and I used a 154 gr. Norma round to do the deed.

So there, I just proved it.....NEXT! :bigrin:

I like the thought of milsurps being out there as hunting rifles but makes me sad to see one that's been all cut up and sporterized :cry:

Nice deer, Pete.
Nice Mauser, too.
Is that the original stock? Nice wood. Reminds me of Tiger Maple.

Trust me, the 7mm is better off with the "whittled" stock (it had issues).
Here's some better pics of that gun.

I know this is a old post, but I can't help but
Agree with you they are great hunting rifles.
I carry one for part of our deer season
Haven't had the right deer show up yet.
It's just a matter of time.
P.S. very nice M.S.R.guys.

In 1961 I lived on a ranch in a very rural part of western Nebr. Mom & dad went to town once a week. While Mom was shopping, I wandered up & down the main street of a small town. In a hardware store I saw an ad for 1917 rifles for sale @ 19.95.

Brang new in cosmolene. Told dad & he bought one. Like rifles from Albania, it had been SOAKED in cosmo. He cleaned it with a bucket o' gasoline & sporterized it.

Which is most uncool today, but for a cash-strapped ranch foreman, it was a using rifle for an affordable price. Shot a lot of deer with it, we did! SW

Rifles in the Montgomery Wards catalog don't
Remember the $.
But my mother must have notice that, one day
She took me to the Western Auto store and bought
Me a new Revelation 100 22 cal. Rifle.
Don't have the rifle anymore , but I due have
The steel box gun cleaning kit. With the
Revelation name on it , witch was the stores
Brand name.
P.s. I don't want to hijack this. Trend so I will start
Another , I have another story like this.

I wonder what "1917 rifles" they were?
Also, cudos to the admin.
I probably haven't been back here since I posted those pics of my brother's Mauser 4.5 years ago, and yet, the very next post here generated an email alert so here I am.
Great to know there's still people out there with an actual work ethic.

It was an Eddystone. I got a bloody nose from it first deer I shot - choked up too far on the stock. Didn't notice until I was gutting the deer & thought I cut myself.

"Admin work ethic?" Maybe not - we have a heck of a time getting anyone to clean the terlet. And SOMEONE keeps messing with the wrestling magazines!!! They WERE in chronological order!! :evil: SW
