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.

Thanks for sharing. I was but 12 years old in '59 and our first deer season was still 2 years away.

Thanks for sharing the memories. In the 1950's, my dad hunted in Harvey Station, NB, Canada almost every year. Had the same outfitter and guide each time, and they all remained friends for life (all have since passed). Above me now on my living room wall is a big 11-pointer Dad shot in '57, shortly after I was born. Mom never forgave him for leaving her home with a newborn. LOL!
Did all of his hunting with an open sighted model 94 in .32 special. Later in life, he traded it for a M700 ADL in .308, but never had the opportunity to hunt with it.
Memories are our most precious possession.

Thanks for the photographs diamondjim. Mine introduced me to hunting and an uncle did lots to try to refine my taste in shooting. Dad's been gone since '74 and my uncle since 2017. Miss them all. Be Well, Rustyzipper.

Good stuff. My Dad didn't hunt but my Uncle Hank did. We lost him earlier this year and like you, I hope to hunt with his old Winchester 94 that was originally owned by my Grandfather.
Thanks for sharing. (Now I need to take something for my allergies that have suddenly flared up.)
