It could be the hunter was being safe,(with his Model 1894) and the hammer is on half cock or safety, what ever terminology you want to use.

That 95 looks like it might be a Flatside with a Lyman receiver sight! Can you get a close up picture of it? Then again the magazine looks like a 2nd model.

Here is an old hunting photo I came across a while back. The Caption in spanish means "The Poor Doe".

A close up shows its a Flatside with a Lyman Receiver sight.

Mav, I will see if I can get a better photo, but looking at the card again I would say that for sure it has the reciever sight

Maverick, I took another photo of the card and cropped it...A little better than the first, but not much...my camera just won't let me get close enough and still focus....The guys on horseback look to be packing leverguns, but just too far back to tell exactly what they are......you can bet there is probably an 86' in the crowd though.....Brian10218126296_deb36b7492_c.jpgImage Enlarger

Thanks for posting those hunting pictures guys. It must have been a big change when the high velocity cartridges came out in the 1895 and 1886. I like seeing those 1895s...even though I only have one of them. A decent looking 30-40 with a Lyman 21 or 38 is right at the top of the wish list.

Good to see you're still around Briango.

Slightly off topic but I did get out and shoot my 1886 recently and am looking forward to carrying in during gun deer season.

Its a second model with a receiver sight. If you look at the lever you can tell its a two-piece lever and has the lever latch. It would be nice to know what those riders are packing. Assuredly looks like lever guns to me.

Maverick

Brad, Its good to still be around.....That 86' is looking good...I dearly hope you do take it out this season.....I beleive that if wichesters could talk they would be just like a good hunting dog.....They want to be out hunting... I love old hunting photos and have some great ones...I have one that is a hunting photo of my father in law when he was 14. Its the logging camp that his dad and grandfather worked at and it was opened to all the guys when the season opened...No logging, just hunting..There must be 20 loggers and about that many deer..it was 1943 and its easy to see that the winchester leverguns still outnumbered the bolt actions by a fair margin..The other interesting thing is that since the war was on its all older gentlemen and one kid.[him].. also the gun he is holding in the photo now lives in my gun safe....Thanks for sharing the photos....Brian

Found this nice photo today at a local gun show. It is a tin type photo showing a guy a decked out for the next hunting trip he has been invited on. This one also shows a nice flat side '95.

One more of Model '95 and hunter, who is identified as Emerson Hough, author of The Covered Wagon. The photo was taken in New Brunswick Canada, likely up around Perth Andover.

Hope you find a way to post that picture someday. We still don't log around here during gun deer season.

Road King
Those are good pictures. Nice 1895s! That guy in the first picture sure looks like a city "dude" to me. Gun is probably still in 90% or better condition Laugh

Picture of wife's grandfather in striped shirt. Deer hunting in Wisconsin in the 1920s. Quite a mixture of guns used.

Not sure of models of the winchesters

That is a neat picture but, the firearms safety leaves a little bit to be desired.

Here is another photo I have of a hunting party showing another Model 1895. I can identify this rifle as a Model 1895, take down in .30-06. I was given the photo when I purchased the rifle.

Grandfather probably had a lot of patience with that group Laugh

Road King: Was that picture taken in Canada? That's pretty cool to get it with the gun pictured. You almost posted it on the anniversary...just a day off.

Brad:
Yes the photo was taken in Ontario, Canada. Yes I just noticed the date, was going to post it yesterday but forgot. I also got the cartridge belt that he is wearing in the photo.

Here is another nice old hunting photo that I found today. Don't have access to a scanner right now but there is 4 rifles in the photo. One being 1899 Savage and 2 Model 1894 Winchesters (one with tang sight) and another rifle in a scabbard.
