This was absolutely a great piece. I loved the part about using the screws from the rifle for ammo. The British never figured out how we beat them - it's called "ingenuity".
Remembering The Leatherstocking's saying, "When you start to chase a deer in the morning, you don't know where you will sleep at night", the elk hunt description probably explains how he ended up out north of the Platte River. Being nigh four score years, he mou'tn't run as fast as he used to could when he was a younker.
