    I read that book some time ago and Elmer was a hoot! He was a good old country boy and wrote like it. He was all for the big bores and heavy bullets, which caused lots of spats with Jack OConnor, who was college educated and was quite the writer in his time and loved the .270.

    That old Son of a Bitch was a great fella!

    He sure did hate Golden Eagles. . . with a passion.:)

    He and a few others aren't replaceable!

    Gone but not forgotten. He was the real deal.
