Movie: Wind River 2017
Just saw a pre screening for this movie. It was pretty good! General release for August 4. Bonus points to anyone who can ID the rifle and glass.

Certainly looking forward to it here in Wyoming. I used to supply trees to a Shoshone medicine man for the annual sun dance when I was District Ranger on the BTNF.

That looks like a good one. Wind River Canyon is one of the most beautiful places on earth, IMHO.

Looks good.

The rifle is a Marlin 45-70 Guide Gun. The off center front sight gives it away. As Bear Claw Chris Lapp said, "Saw it right off."

Don't know about the glass.

Looks good, even if it's Thuderheart 2.0

There is some other movie that has a similar premise. I just can't remember which one.

But I'll still looking forward to this movie.

I like the screewriter whose credits include Hell or highwater & Sicario. Taylor Sheridan, figured he’d be a lawman. His family was full of them, the most famous being former deputy U.S. marshal Parnell McNamara, who worked out of Waco very succesfully I might add & not far from the Sheridan family’s Bosque County property, and young Taylor saw him as a role model. It's translated into his screen adaptations and this should be a great movie Wink

The trailer immediately reminded me of "Shoot to Kill" with Poitier and Berenger.

Saw this today. Somber, violent, depressing (at times), ultimately though, hopeful in the end. I liked it--a lot.

Renner and Graham Greene were outstanding, as was Gil Birmingham who played the father of the dead girl.

The wife and I really enjoyed this movie. Renner did an excellent job.

Really looking forward to it but it won't be at our little theater. Will need to wait a few months for AppleTV.

That was the response from some native friends.

Good to see Graham Greene, always enjoyed his roles, wished he was in more movies given his distinctive voice and presence.

There's a scene in the movie where Renner's character is walking in the woods with his arms at 90 degrees and the rifle resting in/on his forearms.

It seems that this is not the optimal way to walk through woods when you don't know what you may run into.
Do hunters walk through the woods like Renner's charactr did? If not, what is the ideal way to walk through the woods?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I don't remember that particular scene or the circumstances, i.e. whether or not he was in imminent danger. Otherwise, cradled in your arms is the least tiring way to carry a rifle in the woods, that allows one to bring the rifle up with little motion that attracts the eye of game.

Looks like an 1895 SBL, not the Guide Gun.

Haven't seen it yet, but from the description, you are correct. Lugging a heavy rifle around all day is more tiring than one might imagine, and that method makes it quite easy.
