Just watched this last night. Stars Jeremy Renner as a fish and game hunter that assists in a murder investigation on an indian reservation.Enough action and plot twists to keep it exciting. Predictable, but so are most movies.
I liked it.

Watched it, liked it. Coworker wants to buy the 45/70 used and I guess this movie made it so popular that there is a backlog... that was 8 weeks ago so may have changed by now.

Finally got a chance to see this, and actually really enjoyed it. I've wanted a .45/70 lever gun for awhile, but could never justify it. Now I want it more, but still can't justify it. :ROFLMAO: Great flick!

I watched it also because of the recommendations. You guys got it right. Great movie. I was pleasantly surprised to see about half of the cast from Yellowstone were in this movie. Decent portrayal of the bleak life on the reservations. I thought it overkill to smoke the coyote with the 45/70, but that is nit-picking. The lever gun was cool but most of us would have chosen a flatter shooting weapon for use in such wide open spaces. Just sayin.

The FBI lady was pretty clueless, inept, poorly prepared, generally a babe in the woods character. She had to grow up pretty fast. I would have hoped that an agent, even one straight outta Quantico would have been better trained and prepped for that job.

I shot a 45/70 last week...its not very flat shooting. It is a BIG honker tho !!!!

Lever guns are great bush/pack guns....not so much what modern shooting is tho. It was also good to see some reloading, even tho you could see he did not know what he was doing. If I remember correctly...he bumped the powder pan and spilled some.

He shot the coyote with a bolt gun, not the lever

Wind River is a great film. If you haven't watched Longmire, you are in for a treat. Longmire is a series on Netflix.
