Hunting with the 1873 Winchester rifle

The 1873 Winchester has a very unique place in my heart. Being a child I never dreamed about having a bolt action rifle, the rifle for me was always operated by a lever. Hunting with a cartridge charged the traditional way with black powder gives a special touch to the day as well. And if all these things are happening in snow? Well, that’s just perfect. Let me guide you through a few days in the woods. Sighting, using the Ideal tool for making cartridges, target shooting, making a lunch from the game, all included in this episode.
