Hawg I have known Steve a very long time. He lives 300 miles from me up near the Crow Rez on the Wind River. He has a little ranch behind a dusty butte in Hidden Valley. It takes a four wheel drive to get into his place year around. I go up and visit with him a couple times a year. We sorta deal out on things from time to time. You know what I am saying
This rifle was based on one of my ancestors rifles who served under Andy Jackson in the Tenn. Militia. I will post some pics of the butt stock. Your Hawkens is a fine looking periode rifle. The Hawkens is always in style.
