A Cabin of Winchesters

#1 Post by Carlsen Highway » Tue Aug 29, 2017 5:48 am

I count one Winchester 94 rifle, then three saddle ring carbines in a row, a Winchester 92 rifle took the bear, and the deer on the right taken with a button mag Winchester 92 carbine.

Thanks for the picture. Is it from your part of the world? I'd bet those fishing rods are all split bamboo.

For this picture I put on my cheaters and got out the magnifying glass.

"I think" the rifle leaning on the chair to the left of the 3 SRC's is a Marlin. There is the tell tale hump on the bottom of the receiver for the lever pivot, and the rear of the receiver where the hammer is doesn't look Winchester. The front of the receiver don't look like a Winchester to me either.

Those Win 1894 SRC's are like my very first 1894 though and do bring back a lot of memories.

I'd love to spend a good hunt at that cabin.

I originally thought the one on the left was a Marlin as well, and I think you're right.

That's awesome. Looks like a fun place to spend the hunting season. I'm curious how the log holding all of the animals is fastened. Looks like they have rope or something going over the cabin tied off behind the cabin. That's a good bit of weight on that log. Very cool image.

that is a more modern photo than it appears. what gives it away for me is the light in the back ground and the sharpness of the trees, film in the early 1900s wasn't that sharp. it could be from the 50s up, but I think latter than that,,,,

I agree that ain't a Kodak box pic, but... given the depth of field, and good quality of the sepia tones, I'm thinking either a professional or talented amateur took this with a view camera & glass plates.

That depth of field requires a loooong exposure so I too think it's done with a view camera but glass plates usually give a reversed image (contact prints) and the rifles are not reversed. Nice print though. I'd still like to know if it's New Zealand or US.

Of course it's an old photo. Everyone knows modeen deer can't be stopped with them leverguns. A modern photo would have a couple 300 win mags and a Barrett 50. :lol:
Seriously...sure is a cool photo. I'm looking at a small screen.....Is that a squirrel above the bear or part of the bear?

I believe it's a support pole to hold the weight of the bear...but it sure do look like a squirrel.

Hi Joe,
I'm pretty sure you are right. The one on the left is a Marlin. I copied the pic and blew it up. the lever is squared and the forend cap is too short. The other 3 are SRC 94's. you can tel the SRC because there are black spots (shadows) of the ring stub on each.
The other neat thing is the one leaning on the big bear. I am pretty sure it's an 86. Two clues, the loading gate area is much longer than a 92 and it longer than all the others at least 26" barrel.

Cool pic....I've never seen an old picture where the guns were perfectly lined up. In those days, guns were just tools. Yes, the gun by the bear is an 86....

My guess is a bunch of guys who are Levergun nuts had a next week in the woods staged the pic. I can see the bumper of a 2014 Silverado in the background. :D ---6

It need not be a plate camera, just a decent rollfilm folding camera could do this.

I am picking it is between 1900 and 1920. But that's just a feeling based on all the lever actions, the animals over a pole like that, which looks like a market hunters thing, or a left over from those days, the colour of the print, and the shallow depth of field (foreground is OOF as is the trees behind) which means a slow film which fits the period.

how old does the cabin look like to you guys? The roof doesn't look like it was made too long ago, its only got a bit of growth on it.

I suppose what is interesting is what has not changed. Its still the forest. The animals are the same. The cabin could be the same. The guns and cartridges could be the same.

I agree that the left most rifle is most likely a Marlin. The three SRC's have all had the rings removed from the mounting stud. The right most rifle is most likely a, 1892 but it is a take down frame rifle not a "button mag carbine" since that gun does not have a barrel band around the fore end wood. Instead you can clearly see the take down ring in front of the receiver and the short, half mag is slightly longer than the fore end wood since the lever used to unscrew the magazine is located there.

I think it's a river or a lake behind those aspen trees.

I see two bait casting reels on heavy poles and a fly rod between them.
Is the reel on the left a spinning reel? When did spinning reels come into being?

The squirrel appears to diving into that bear's back-end.

Great pic, thanks for posting! It sure can make you forget about the moment and make you think you (wish) were there.

The deer look like mule deer and likely elk antlers on the roof, maybe Canada? Alberta?
That's a mess of fish to the left too. :)
