Well done! Ya can't eat antlers, so if the chance to take a rack is there I say shoot it. Sure I pass up little racks but if it's as wide as the ears or better it's going in the freezer. Personally I think a mature doe is harder to hunt than a buck.

Re: Winchester 94 carrier/lifter/elevator

First thing I would do is take it apart and CLEAN it! Could be as simple as it is gunked up ( WD40) and then reassemble and function test. Then if the problem is still there you know something else is going on and diagnose the culprit.
I have a very strong dislike for WD40!
