If you eat meat, then you should be perfectly comfortable with the concept and have the ability to hunt.

I haven't hunted for several years, but I still love to shoot my old deer rifle. It was my grandfather's gun, and I inherited it. It's a Winchester Model 88 lever action rifle, in .243. However, if you are unfamiliar with the Model 88, don't picture your classic Winchester lever action (Model 94, in .30-30). This gun shares more in common with a bolt-action rifle than most lever guns. Details for the curious here.

Especially since the deer stand a better chance than the cow who is destined to catch a sledge hammer between the eyes.

Roughly the same thing as mine, though mine is a darker finish.  It's one of my two 30-06s, though probably my lesser favorite of the two.  Both have Bushnells on them.

Went bow hunting with my recurve, unsuccessful.

I've actually never been hunting. Weird, given that two
of my uncles shoot a lot of their own food, mostly deer.

Hunting for sport doesn't hold much appeal to me, yet
there's still the primeval part of me that wants to give
it a try, if only so I can incorporate that new skill
set into my zombie plan.

I used to hunt when I was younger, but don't really anymore. I never really got into it. My dad asked me yesterday if I was going with him to Michigan for deer season. I declined.

Old Winchester Model 94, I missed one this weekend though because it was already walking back into the woods when I snuck up on it.  Terrible weekend to hunt, too cold and snowing 24/7 so they all were hiding in the woods :(


There is no safety really....sort of unsafe but it shoots pretty decently!

How is that unsafe? Don't chamber a round till you need to, then keep your finger off the trigger.

This summer sees me taking to the field with a custom double .375 Holland and Holland.

The safety is on the hammer. You half cock until ready to shoot then fully pull down the hammer.

Just can be unsafe when unloading the gun, which you have to keep using the lever over and over, putting the hammer into firing position, of course it's easy to pay attention to that and make sure it doesn't go off, but I hate unloading it every time...

Hell I hadn't thought of that. I habitually shoot my lever actions dry.

Good point.

How's that going for you?
