Looks like she's about to get to work on that boy !

Looks like she was taught right. Kill it, clean it, and cook it!

Look at that trophy hunting picture. We need to ban all trophy hunting. It's obvious she only killed it for its horns. Horn porn...disgusting.

Bought a reprint of that one and a couple others when I passed thru Craig Co few years back. She was out of town at the time so I didn't get it autographed .

I can read her lips..."Hurry up and take that danged picture, so I can get this thing dressed out" ! :^)

Kota-man got an lol out of me with that comment .

It is a Hepburn Remington #3.

Designed by Lewis Hepburn, Remington's mechanical department superintendent, this rifle model incorporated a side-mounted lever that operates the breech. Patented in 1879, this model continued to be listed in Remington catalogs through 1907. It was offered in calibers ranging from .22 to .50-90.

From the looks of the cartridges in her belt I think it was close to the latter.

Heck of a buck. Either they've already figured out back then how to long arm their photos or that is a HUGE body muley .....

Any idea when that was taken? I can't make out the date stamp on the photo...... =D

Clothing items were so much more practical way back then. It looks like her cartridge belt also serves as her bra by keeping her boobs from flapping around.

Yikes, she's heinous. No way anyone married her, she must have had to kill deer for food. That deer wasn't shot, she just stared at deer and they died. Notice there is zero blood/wounds.

From: greg simon

She cleaned up the deer prior to taking the photo so as not to offend anyone ;)

Yea right!!!

Looks like grandpa Kate to me. Probably wore that get up to get into the cowgirl room at the Lonebrew saloon back in town.

MF it looks like the rounds are probably .45-90 or .45-110, could be .50-90 ...maybe a Ballard rifle?

From: Fuzzy
01-Sep-17
looking more closely, it's not a Ballard or a Rolling Block, certainly not a Maynard a Sharps or a Spencer... I'm stumped

From: Fuzzy

Coyote 65 I just read your post and looked up the Hepburn, I am convinced you are right, and yep, either .45-90 or .50-90 caliber

I better those aren't her Sunday go to church gloves.

I'm guessing out West in that era, she was handsome enough. Add in that she had a good rifle, shoots straight and likely will have that deer hanging in the root cellar and backstraps frying with some taters ready by supper and she might have been considered a catch.

She had all it takes...... was female and living and breathing.......

Bikini models were few and far between......

Coyote- Very interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed the history lesson. I imagine taking some of those pitures with the camera technology of the time. Talk about trail cam!

Gusty was a cool chick! A forward thinker, a little dirty (emerging from the cabin snow in and needin' to get hitched) ; ^ ) and a damn fine, handsome looking woman (for her time)...

The original Cougar!

In all prospective thought, this is your most hated school teacher from back in the day, the one you just never ever hoped to have the unfortunate pleasure of seeing again, and behold ...there she is, in all her glory ,and can't wait to sink her teeth into that tender juicy back strap !!!

Great story Terry. Thanks for posting. Sometimes we see a picture like like that that and get a chuckle over it. Every picture has a story and this one was very interesting.

Cool story. Tough folks.

"she lost her first husband, either through death or divorce" LOL! She wouldn't say or folks were too scared to ask?

You all ought to be thanking BSBD, he had the name, I just posted a link to her story. One of these days after I find them after the big move to AZ I will post some hunting pictures of Mrs. Coyote65's grandfather. Taken in the 20's or 30's in Wyoming when he went hunting there and killed a grizzly.
