Re: Who hunts with a 8?

I took my 25 out this fall for Whitetails. Had one mid 130's buck hop our fence after the does. Had to sprint 300yds to get as close as I dare to the patch of brush they went in. The does ran west again and not far behind was the buck, but still another 300yds off. I let him go and not 20 minutes la...

25-35 Rem

This one suprised me last winter on canadiangunnutz. Good thing canuck was sleeping or distracted..... :mrgreen: My goal was to get one to represent the two I have so many pics of from the old days.

Re: Good websites to browse?

shiprex, Not sure which photos you are referring to specifically but a few Rich used are from my stash. If by chance you live in or have relatives from Wisconsin then we should talk! The one chap most prevalent in my old 8 pics is Martin Arneson, a Norske who left Wisconsin in 1907 and rode all the ...

Re: Favorite Model 8 caliber ?

25Rem is by far my favorite not because how good it is. More for how it was used in my family to put food on the table.
