That's a 1942 Swiss K31, 7.5x55mm caliber. It's a very accurate rifle.
Here's a little more about these rifles:

The 7.5x55 Swiss is similar to the .300 Savage in performance.

Scouting for a moose camp. The 99 was along in case an early black bear showed himself. [img:center][Linked Image][/img]

I like those rifles, but I get a kick out of the beer keg looking bolt knob.

We call them bunny boots up here. But as I understand it, the Mickey Mouse boots were different in that they didn't have the air valves on them, just multiple layers of felt. But I've heard it different too. And yeah, they are the only boots I know of that you can fill with water at below zero, dump them out, and your feet will still be warm.

If you're talking to me, I'm just learning the 99, but for my Ruger .308 I load 168 grain Seirra HPBTs in front of 43 grains of IMR 4064. That is what I was carrying in the 99 today. I had good luck with the 99 firing that load on the range at 100yds the other day.
It doesn't take much to break down a black bear up here. We have giant brown bear, but the blacks are usually small.
It's warmer up here this year than many places in the L48. My boy and I were walking around in 39 degree weather, and that should make the blackies wake up.

Given that I was issued "Mickey Mouse" boots courtesy of my Uncle Sam they did have air valves and came in both black and white. The air valves were there because depending on the temp the warmth of your feet could cause them to over inflate thus the need to bleed off some of the air from time to time. To us "Bunny Boots" are just big old kinda sorta white boots with a felt liner. But then, I'm down here. grin

Yes! More in the freezer.
I slow cooked a loin last week. It's absolutely wonderful. I would describe it similar to a beef roast in looks, color, texture and flavor is close to beef also but a little more sweet.

The tentative plan is for the Saturday evening meal to include a game feed among other fix'ins on site. Any and all are welcome to contribute, deer, turkey, bison, gator or whatever you'd like if it is possible for you. PM me if interested and any special needs.

Going all-out Savage today in anticipation of Savage Fest and even swiped a new avatar. Here's my mug. I usually don't wear the helmet around town.

One neat thing about logging is the deer will sometimes get in real close...

Little healthier looking one that didn't get so close today.

Since I cant hunt my Savage rifles legally in Illinois (no centerfire allowed on deer) we have to use other means to put them down.
