new member from Northern NY

Post by northcountrygent »

Hi--I'm Bruce from Northern NY. My model 8 story began back in 1990, when I picked up an old Remington Auto loading rifle (from 1910) in 35 Rem for $150. I shot a nice buck with it that fall-- and many more since, along with several bears. It has become my favorite gun! I've purchased one since then (also 35 Rem, but from the 1920s). They both shoot great-- very accurate! Love 'em! I have recently written a book about some of our hunting and fishing adventures in Northern NY. Some of you might be interested in it, as in several chapters the Model 8 Rem is the star of the show! Once I learn how to maneuver on this site (like private messaging, etc) maybe some of you will check out my book. May God bless you all!

another Adirondack assassin! I've never walked those woods but have flown over them and marveled at what a beautiful wilderness they are. Your book sounds extremely interesting not just the location but the rifle as well! WELCOME :D

Welcome from Texas! Few people from the rest of the country relalize the REAL New York is the breathtaking upstate. Beautiful countryside and great people. My wife and I would live up there in a heartbeat if you had more freedom. I love hunting tales and hope to make some with my new 1950 .300 sav m81!
