Buck Season in Pennsylvania

Next week, the week after Thanksgiving, is the first week of rifle deer season in Pa. Only the car model (now most likely a pickup truck) will have changed when this scene is repeated hundreds more times.

It's all groovy

The Remington Model 14 had 12 widely-spaced grooves in the forestock, as does the one in the photo. The Model 141 had 25 narrowly-spaced grooves. Also, the front sight on the 141 was a bead ramp style.

I wouldn't be surprised

if his name was Elmer J. Fudd.

The Rifle

is a Remington 14 or 141 carbine - probably a 14, as the similar 141 was produced only from 1935 on, and in small numbers.

Shhh, be vewy quiet.

The Wabbit was too clever so he had to settle for Deer.
