Yeah, I did, too. Sorry.

Myself and several friends that build websites have been having trouble with our service provider, today was enough, we changed services.

Now the GRRW CA (Green River Rifle Works Collectors Association) will be located at:

As time allows I'll get all pictures converted to 'Photobucket' and then add pages to the new website, thanks for your time.

Conner...........For me and others the fur trade ear along with the MM era was from 1820-1840. With 1840 being the last rendezvous. Silk had taken over beaver hats in Europe and the beavers were becoming trapped put anyway. The American Fur Co. and The Rocky MountainCo were gone by 1841.
Yes, there were some MM who continued to trap on their own, but they were few compared to the peak of the era. I know of clubs who hold BP shoots who set the limit for gear at 1840.

So, when I think of the fur trade era and the mountain man era I think of it as ending in 1840. Just my view.

As for those whining about this conversation? This is the traditional forum. These are the conversations we have here. Maybe someone learned something new by reading this thread. If you don't have any interest in this stuff....why are you reading it? Anybody interested in the gun for sale has all the info they need in the first post.

Cripes! What a bunch of busy bodies!

Amen to that old friend. See any bear? This rifle for sale would make someone a damn good gun for those grizzlie suckers or a big mulie.  Thanks Muley. Wink

Like Mike Nesbitt use to say "Shoot Straight".

I'd love to have one of their guns. It's just way more money than I could ever afford. Beautiful guns.

No bear yet. I knew it would be hard. In the unit Jon is hunting for bear they shot 18 bears last fall. In my unit they shot one bear. Pretty bad odds for over 300 bear hunters.

I'm letting my back heal up. I sort of over did it yesterday. I'll try again tomorrow.

Good Luck.

I use to live 13 miles from Estes Park CO., good old Area #20. Guess I was very lucky having taken (4) black bears and (1) cinnamon colored  bear in 20 years of hunting that area. Always lots of road hunters.


You need to change your profile picture to this one Muley.

I saw no hunters where I went. Which includes elk and deer muzzy hunters. I'm trying a new area tomorrow and i'm sure i'll see some hunters.

I just want to see a bear which I hardly ever see and i'm in the mountains almost every day. Sneaky little guys. I see more cats than bears. Good luck getting that tag.
