Ah....the real meaning behind road kill and riding shotgun.
The man obviously appreciated fine machinery. Model T and a Model 12.
That will teach them pesky wabbits!!
Amazing photo of real life. The RR tracks make it all the better.
So that’s how “road hunting” started?
That certainly appears to be a Model 12. I wish it were mine! I've had several 870 Wingmasters but have always wanted a Model 12.
The cleaners must have loved him. Imagine going hunting dressed like that today!
I don't know about the rifle, but the car is a '12!
A lot of great stuff to look at in that one!
Blacked out rad on a really nice T and the W sign sneaking out of the photo for the rail engineers...
Great pic Jay!
That's a model 12? No. Not the Ford. I have an unusable '97 that bit my granddad's finger and he threw into the swamp/pond.
Pray tell the difference. :-)
What a great photo....for so many reasons
The rabbits around here are so full of fleas, that that man would be scratching already. It always makes me wonder how people can go after rabbits, unless the flea situation is just around here.
Those look pretty small for jack rabbits. Must be cottontails. Up at home when I was a kid we use to snare snowshoe hares. We had to watch for boils but fleas weren't a problem. If they were clean (no boils) we made stew. Our greatest problem was having brush wolves (coyotes) eating them in the snares before we got to them.
I remember seeing a photo of a large black timber wolf that a guy shot that as I recall went a couple hundred pounds. I've still got the photo around here somewhere. Now the tree huggers are protecting them while they kill farmers calves, dogs and other livestock. The bunny huggers love them and the farmers wait for an opportunity to kill them. I've got a bit of a problem with the conservation efforts of our DNR. I think they bend a little too quick for special interest groups in this state.
