Several articles recently sparked my interest, and so last fall I asked my oldest son and best friend to join me on a lever hunt in 2020 for mule deer in Wyoming. They both agreed to do so. I purchased my first rifle when I moved to the West Coast from Ohio in the late 1960s. It was a Winchester Model 94 in Winchester Model 94 in .30-30. In the late '80s, I bought a big-bore Model 94 in .356 Winchester to hunt bear in California. After 35 years of sitting in my gun safe, excitement for levers got me going. I even bought reloading dies. I've purchased 200 rounds through the years for use on a rainy day. The Winchester loads came with 200-grain bullets. I am reloading a 180-grain Sierra with 46.1 grains of Accurate 2015 powder and large rifle primers. I had the trigger set to 4 pounds. I put a Leupold 3-9X scope on it, too. We have been hunting in Wyoming for 25 years, and I haven't been this excited for the hunt in years. I want to thank Tom Beckstrand, Craig Boddington, Kyle Lamb, and all the other gunwriters for renewing my interest in levers. I hope that other hunters will dust off their lever-actions and enjoy them.
