Welcome to the forum!! We're glad to have you!
Husqvarna built rifles for over 300 hundred years. They stopped manufacturing them in 1989. The Husqvarna rifle is one of the most accurate rifles you will ever come across. 1/2" groupings at over one hundred yards is not uncommon. And the Husqvarna Mauser is even superior to the German Mauser in both accuracy and workmanship. I'm going to buy one in 9.3X62mm.(.366 cal.) for really big game. We use the chain saws to cut up the moose.

No kidding, monie; have a look here. This is me at moose camp a few years ago (bottom pic):

The chainsaw needs to be nice and clean, and vegetable oil is used in the chain lube reservoir.

And oops - sorry for taking this thread off on a tangent.

Thumbs up Chainsaw for quartering moose

I can't believe I missed this!!!!!! If I'm in the woods, I use a reciprocating saw with an extra-long tree pruning blade for quartering moose, and if I'm at home, I use an electric chainsaw, with vegetable oil in the chain resorvoir. Works great!!

Hunting is addicting....

Archery is a lifestyle....

I used to think about hunting when fall came around...Then I started archery hunting...

Now I think about is 24x7 365....

Thats the best way I can describe it!!!

In order of my favorites, it would be archery, muzzleloader and then rifle. I wouldn't give up any of them as they all have a place in my seasons and methods.
