My brush rifle for Elk is a 1895G. Short barrel, light weight and powerful handloads are a great combonation. Now if I can just get an Elk to cooperate...

In all my years trying to still hunt heavy cover, I've found that no matter how fast the action, "follow up shots" only work if you slowed him down with the first one. All you normally get is ONE shot. Even my semi auto SKS is too slow for "follow up shots". Most of the deer I've taken this way were taken with a good, accurate bolt gun with low power optic, which gives me faster target acquisition than iron sights.

This photo was sent to me by a friend. I do not know the hunter.

Good video,wonder why the guy was wearing all white in the woods.

He probably didn't want to get shot by bubba. We like to talk on these forums about how safe we are and how people always know what they are shooting at, etc, etc.

From my experience bubba will shoot at damn near anything in the woods.

Thats the scary part, bubba goes out drunk in the woods with his trusty pump handed from grandpa. He sees something moving in the woods with dogs barking. He think the white he sees is the front chest of a big mature buck. He aims and squeezes the trigger ....

Lever guns are good all around guns, it doesn't really matter what you are doing.
Taking a long shot use a 28" barrel, just like BPCR shooting. Going in heavy cover use an 18, 20, or a 22" barrel. Calibers are numerous. Small game use a .22, big game you can use a .45-70 or spend some money and use a .510 Kodiak Express.
Doesn't matter, there's a lever for every occasion.

I have my doubts about the edibility of those hogs.
Glad he took them out.
Wonder what the caliber of the rifle was?
Levers are pretty fast once you get used to them but I can work the short action bolt of my Remington 600 carbines as fast or perhaps even faster than I can work the lever on my Marlin 336.

Those hogs look really fat, there must be a good source of plant protein nearby ...
