Going through pictures. This deer was taken in the northwestern part of our state of Nebraska, near Chadron. November of 1959. I was but one year old at the time.
My dad and uncle and a family friend were along as well. I'm thinking the rifle is a sporterized Mauser, probably 8x57. Never found the history on it
and he is no longer with us.
I will be searching for a rifle similar to this, so I can hunt as he did at least one time.
Brings back memories of outdoor times with Dad. At least now I get to share the good times with my two sons, my older brother and a nephew and niece, and someday I hope to with my granddaughter.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
