Old Time Hunters might remember this.

How many of you have had an old single shot 22 that you had to dig the shells out with your pocket knife after every shot? How many of you would shoot then dig the shell out, stick the knife in a tree you were standing ? Reload and shoot again just to start over with the process? How many have then walked away with your knife stuck in a tree? How many of you have some time later made back to that area and found your knife? Or perhaps found someone else's knife stuck in a tree?

Did that many nights, until some dope head stole out of my truck, it was my grandpa Sears and roebuck 22 single shot. Man could I knock coon out with that thing, hate to guess how many thousands of coon I got with it. That was back in the 80's till early 2000, used to grab the shells and put them in my mouth so didn't have to dig from pockets. Did swallow one from time to time during all the excitement. Bring back fond memories

My huntin buddy still does up fur in the fall/winter skins every coon we kill in the woods....sticks his knife in the tree and walks away. I've got the latest marked on my Garmin first time I get close enough to get it. He's lost a half dozen that I know of in the 30 years we've hunted together.

I'm still missing a nice single shot that I left laying next to a tree some 20 years ago. I went back a couple days later and did a thorough search with no luck. Miss that stick.

The old single shot 22 I still use I bought over 45 years ago and it was old them. Had to make a new firing pin out of an old pocket knife to get it to fire. Left it under a tree and about two weeks later realized it wasn't behind the seat. Thought for a while and remembered where I had last used it. Walked to that tree (long time before any Garmin to help) and there it was leaning against the tree. Still shoots accurate. Cheyenne I thought I was the only guy that put shells in my mouth to keep from having to get back in the little pouch. The only real problem is it's heavy. Just got a laser dot put on a Heritage pistol. Gonna see how that works.

I have single shot Winchester I have had 20+ years. Started hunt with guy lives few miles from me. And apparently he left one just like mine leaning against tree. I think he still half way thinks mine is his old one and I found it.

I think it was a Remington target master single shot bolt action open sights it was my grandfather's gun I don't know how old it is but I would think it's around 100 years old my dad still has it. Dad is kind of a gun nut so I have never had to buy a gun in my life.

Funny just Monday Cheyenne hollered at me to get a knife out of the truck he had a shell that hadn't ejected. He was squirrel hunting and I was looking for mushrooms. This gun is a Remington model 10 nylon single shot .22 (like the 66 but single shot not semiautomatic). It's a rare gun that he just needs to put in the cabinet and leave it but he likes it. Probably if he cleaned it more often and didn't carry 22 shells in an empty unwashed chew can this wouldn't happen lol!
Dalton left a gun leaning on a fence post a couple of years ago on a road we hunt on. A couple of days later my cousin who lives near there called and said he found a gun and figured it was ours Dalton hadn't missed it yet.
My dad's old 22 is still somewhere against a tree in the woods by the house. In nearly 20 years and walking those woods thousands of times we've still never found it.

Who has an old Stevens falling block or Remington rolling block single shot .22? How many out there know what either one is without googling it?

I think everyone has left one at some point. How many have found one that has been left? I found one when I was in high school that had been left for years. It was completely rusted shut and in rough shape had to use a mallet to open the bolt.
Long story short a year or so later was talking to an older gentleman and somehow he got on this subject. He to,d me. What type of gun it was and where it was left and he had looked for quite awhile and couldn’t fine it. He had left it I. 1981 and I found it in 1996 it’s still in the safe today.
