We have moved to this new location having good water, better pastures &
more game to be taken. We spent to many years on lean times at our old
place, we figured its time for better sky lines & less dangers.
Searching around every
corner in our quest for
facts of interest to you
the reader. Talk about
some wrong information
found, much just hear say
(which doesn't mean
anything) usually found
facts is what good
research is all about.
Time marches on, we still feel like
we're twenty years younger in our
mind. Hard to come to the fact that
we can't do what we use too or find
it takes longer to get things done
than when in an earlier time.
My name is
Barry "Buck" Conner,
I have from time to time done a
little research and written period
articles of my findings. Some of
those articles have appeared in
publications related to living
history and survival;
- "American Firearms Past &
- "Muzzle Blasts" NMLRA
- "Buckskin Report"
- "Poke & Stroke" CSMLA
- "On the Trail" COHT

"Colorado Collectors" journal.
"Smoke Signals" North American
"Amish Recipes" cookbooks
and short articles for magazines
like "Sports Afield", "American
Hunter", "Outdoor Life" and a few
others that don't come to mind at
enjoyed beginning a
magazine until its demise. Have served
many years as an officer for the
Colorado State Muzzle Loading
Association. Past editor for
the "CSMLA" and
the North American Frontiersmen
better know as the "NAF.".
Was responsible for the
American Mountain Men "AMM"
auction website for several years along
with writing articles related to the
American Fur Trade.
My one book "Success in The
North American Fur Trade" is
a collection of company records, reviews,
and thoughts on the subject along with the
history of the
Northwest Trade Gun.
Now listed in the "US Library
of Congress" as a research
book for students of the fur trade. Most
of my work involves research (documented)
on the wares used with in the borders of
North America, found in museums and
Needless to say I have a few years under
my belt at many different time periods in
North American History, this venture
started in 1955 and continues. Not
as we grow older one doesn't
think they have slowed down, but we all have. Read about
my last mistake in getting older.....
This is a work in
process, don't get excited if a link doesn't work. This is just
a sampling of a few articles & research done over the last 50
plus years. Check back as we convert the old articles and links
to this new easier to use setup.
Thank you, please come back.
