FROM NEW BRUNSWICK GUNS USED
I read in "Fur News" your invitation to tell the readers of "Fur News" about our rifles and why we liked them. Well, for big game I use a .40-72 Winchester with octagon barrel. For small game I use a .32 Remington and a double-barreled shotgun, 12-gauge. I don't think anybody can say which is the best make of gun to use. whether it
is a Marlin, Winchester, Remington or a Savage. I believe it is all in the kind of gun you are used Jo. You take a rifle you're used to and you can throw it to your shoulder and you got your sight in half a second. I lent my .32 to a friend one time last fall and he took the heads off six partridge on his way to the lumber camp. I have a single-barrel shotgun, an Iver Johnson; the only fault I find about it is that it is a little hard on the trigger. The reason I like the ..40-72 is that of all the shooting it has done it has never had a shell caught in her yet while ejecting them and it has shot a number of moose and deer and shot the heads off partridge. I have a .22 single-shot rifle; it is a Stevens bolt action. It is the greatest little rifle for rabbits and partridge I ever saw. 1 could tell you about moose and deer expeditions for hours, but that would be about hunting and not rifles.
