Vintage Saturday: Inventor Afield

John M Browning hunting in Wyoming, ca 1910
Always a good sign when an inventor is willing to use his own invention

John Moses Browning (center) elk hunting near Jackson Hole, Wyoming around 1910. His rifle is a Remington Model 8 in .35 Remington, and he is flanked by his brother Matthew on the right. His skinning knife is in hand – no surprise that a hands-on man like JMB would do his own skinning and cleaning.
