Hi guys.

While I was out of town for the long Holiday Weekend, visiting with our Son’s.

My oldest handed me a Copy of the Latest Bugle Magazine, published by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

I’ve always enjoyed reading it, and I found an interesting article, written by the well know writer, Wayne Van Zwoll.

Titled “Rifleman of Wild Places”

Very interesting article, about Colonel, Townsend Whelen.

One of the pics shown, is a knife gifted with the initials “T over W” on the leather sheath.

Interesting!IMG_2771-1.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_2770.jpgImage EnlargerIMG_2769.jpgImage Enlarger

Hopefully someone can add the link, if possible!

Thanks, TonySmile

He was famous for having his initials engraved on many guns, or emblems, such as the monogram of the Camp Fire Club.  If this article concerns his long 1901 & 1906 hunts in B.C. when it was still the Wild West, he wrote about them extensively in later books.
