RMEF Habitat Partner, George Michel, has generously donated this amazing collector’s item to the 2013 Elk Camp Auction. Circle Y Saddles was selected by Wayne Enterprises to craft this special John Wayne saddle. Celebrating the 100th anniversary birthday of film legend John Wayne, the saddle is inspired by the original on display at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. With its hand-tooled design, engraved brass rigging, rawhide braided riata and Mexican peso conchos, this saddle commemorates Duke’s legacy of courage, strength and grit. The package includes a custom saddle stand with tooled-leather medallions and an engraved sterling silver and  gold numbered maker’s plate and an informative DVD and a  book about John Wayne’s film history. If that wasn’t enough, RMEF has added the 1892 John Wayne 100th Anniversary Winchester rifle. The Model 92 High Grade Carbine is also officially licensed by the John Wayne family. This .44-40 Winchester has a gloss blued barrel, silver nickel nitride receiver with engraving and includes a rear carbine ladder sight and a blade front sight. The stock is satin walnut with steel buttplate and large loop lever. This package is truly a special addition to a western heritage collection that is sure to be a treasure of the future.
