Wow. I would have quit bear hunting I think.
Looks more like an 1873 Winchester than a Henry. It doesn't have the same magazine as a Henry Repeating Rifle.Not my find but a few years ago I was cleaning out my grandma's garage and found this, a rusted and weathered Henry Repeater. My grandfather and dad hunted on the King and Kenedy ranches quite a bit many years ago and have had properties all over the rest of south Texas as well. Unfortunately grandad passed in '89 and my dad in '03 and grandma doesn't know anything about the origin of the rifle. What I find most interesting is that the hammer is cocked. Makes me wonder about the circumstances it was lost under...
Thought I would digg this one up from the way backwhile hunting on the hopper ranch in brooks co , we had been driveing cross country bird hunting . we found a car " about 5 miles from any road " and next to the car hanging from fishing line was a dead guy " he looked like a mummy / leather " we called the cops they could not tell us what or why the guy was doing that far from a road
I have a similar story, but it was only 3 years ago. My wife wanted to kill me from bringing that dog home, in fact she looked at our eldest and pointed at me saying something like "Get that ugly flea-bitten dirt bag out of my house, and throw his dog out with him!" Now three years later, I can't separate her from that dog.On my way back from Dove hunting I came across the ugliest puppy in the world abandoned and starving. He devoured three doves and jumped into the back of my car.
That was 13 years ago and he is still with us
