I hunted with vintage arms for about 50 years. Mostly with Winchester and Sharps rifles designed before 1900. I tried them newfangled modern scoped rifles but soon returned to my vintage rifles. About half the time these were loaded with Black Powder the real gun powder. I am 72 now and can't walk much so I stopped hunting several years ago. I don't do blinds or tree stands, I have always still hunted.

I'm almost done paying off a 1873 Trapdoor Rifle in .45-70. Gonna have to take that and my .45 1875 Remington clone on a hunting trip, I think, if only once.

Rowdy--since I am getting on in years (77+) I let my sister's likd do the hunting in our pasture.  I have sort of given up in using the '76 but hope that my boy (45) will grab it and use it.  He is a very good shot with that rifle whether with BP or smokeless.

Howdy
It's all about having FUN and being safe . I started this journey back in 1987 , I was stationed at Ft. Campbell and purchased a Winchester 30 -30 . Started using lever guns and let my Remington 700 just sit in the closet . Then I started cowboy shooting and was always shooting a lever gun almost every Saturday . So then I came up with the idea if I shoot this Rifle all the time why not stiffen up the loads and try it hunting . I had a 1866 carbine in 45 colt and killed a nice doe with it , then I started using 76's and 73's and working with Black powder and black powder subs . I am already planning my Deer season and have my vacation for opening week . That will be my chance to relive 1879 .

Rowdy,
   The pork was excellent. Through some trick of fate, he was a boar, but his ..... Did not develop. He was the fattest woods hog hunters in their eighties here had ever seen. He had almost an inch of fat over his entire carcass. Still frying breakfast pork about once a week. Lol

OK, twist my arm guys Smiley  It is a 45-75 Cimarron that they cut down to the 22" length originally.  I bought it 2nd hand some time ago and shot it a lot.  I added 2" to the LOP when I had the wood replaced with delux and checkered by Macon.  At the same time had them add the checkered steel shotgun butt I bought previous.  Turnbull did the case colors.  Cody Museum had a poster with a '76 short rifle on an old saddle  25 years ago I had framed back then.  No repro '76s 25 years ago so figured I'd never own one.  I ordered a new 1/2 seat saddle early last year.  When I did that I also sent the rifle off to be refinished at the same time.  I'm happy with both! Quite the dream fulfilled really.
