Materials, Methods and Mooar – Henry Crawford

This power-point presentation will take an in-depth look at the technology and methodology that brought down the buffalo on the western plains in the 1870 and 80s. Mr. Crawford will discuss buffalo hunting, including the varieties of guns and ammunition used as well as skinning, meat and hide preparation and transportation to markets. He will then focus on a buffalo hunting treasure in the collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University - hunter John Wesley Mooar's own 1876 Sharps buffalo rifle.
