I made some 3lb sticks of deer summer sausage, I cut them in half and give them to the people
who let me hunt and we have them here for munchies during the holidays. I use a sausage kit
and add garlic and mustard seed, it really turns out good. CELEBRATE the hunt!!!

Well Rowdy, an update on my attempt to shoot a patched R.B. through a whitetail. Wanna hear all the excuses first? Deer showed up too soon (kinda startled me), last 10 minutes of shootin time on a cloudy day, (kinda dark) with a peep sight, fingers were kinda cold, and OH SHIT!!! that set trigger is light!!! I told Quickfire I didn't really consider it a miss because the gun went off before I had the sights where I wanted them, but he called B. S. Pretty sure it was the closest "miss" in my 35 year hunting career! The next day  however, I put a saboted 300 grain Hornady FXT bullet through a doe at 162 paces with my scoped inline. Muzzleloader season ended in NE yesterday at 30 minutes after sunset, but it's only 11 months till next December! I'II BE BACK! (I just got a .58 cal. Pedersoli Kodiak double rifle to play with, so next year I could potentially miss twice real fast!)
It is far better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!

  Don't know if this is considered "vintage" hunting, but I used my Uberti Bisley in 45 Colt. Range was just shy of 45 yds.

I'm pretty sure God made javelinas for targets, not for eatin! I made chili with a south Texas javelina and it was horrible! Maybe it needed to be marinated or smoked? Nice shot with the Bisley!

 Yep, that's pretty much how it is with javelinas. I normally leave them alone, but that morning I was fed up with them running the deer off.
 But Sunday, the last morning of season this spike finally showed up and I fired upon him from 48 yds. out. A high shoulder hit put him down immediately.
 
 

 He's been hanging in the cool shop for almost three days and I intend for him to hang several more. The wife made some stew out of venison New Years Eve and it was to DIE for! That buck had hung for about 10 days and the meat was extremely tender.

Almost 50 yards with a .45-not bad shooting!

   Thanks. It takes me practicing shooting at 50 yds. alot to make shots at that range. And  with the relatively small rear sight on the Colt repros I'm finding 50 yds. is about my limit.

Today is the last day of pheasant season, I wanted to take my young lab out once more
but the temp was -6 with a windchill of-30 so I changed my mind. I was going to use the
stevens dbl, hopefully there will be more pheasants next year, they're starting to come
back a little, but nothing like years ago. $7.00 corn took out a LOT of habitat a couple
years ago.

  No jerky. Venison is a staple at our supper table so jerky would be a luxury. Maybe next year I'll shoot three and jerk some of the meat.

I have a picture of my favorite Hunting shirt and my Pietta in 44wcf and a Stek knife . The Shirt was made by Bear Tooth Billy and I love wearing it while Hunting .

Plan on working up a black powder load for my 73 in 44wcf . I guess my New Years resolution is to mimic the 44wcf load of the 1870's . Also if we have a smokeless load , a black powder sub load and last but not least a Black Powder load then if you want to Vintage Hunt we have a load for YOU . So grab your Rifle and go Hunting . And when season is over and your  watching Lonesome Dove and eating Deer Jerky you will be glad you went Hunting . Life is GOOD .

Who's ready for Turkey season . I can't wait to smoke me an Ol Tom turkey .  I still have the short barreled 87 and haven't tubed it yet . If that don't work out I can fall back on my ttn . It has taken a few Turkeys over the years .

  Nice knife!!

  I'm thinking next year I  may have to try my 1866 Sporting Rifle on deer. It never ceases to amaze me how accurate this rifle is! Today I loaded up a couple dozen rounds consisting of 2.2cc of Swiss 3Fg under an RNFP from an NOE 44-200 mould. I thought it'd be fun to try them at 200 yds. from a prone position using my improvised, temporary sling. Due to a slightly variable wind quartering towards me from the left and gusting to around 20 mph, I had to hold into the wind a little. Still, all but three of the rounds hit in the 12" center!
  I'm hooked...

The sights on my  Marlin 44/40 are only good for just over 150 yards. But good out to there. Tj

Rowdy, I've got just the thing for you, I made a ammo box out of scraped buffalo rawhide,
laced together with sinew, with handle and ties made of brain tanned buckskin. It will be
on the silent auction at our banquet at the convention.

Rowdy,
Attached is a picture of Bear Tooth Billy's Rawhide Ammo Box.
You need to learn to like all the little everday things like a sip of good whiskey, a soft bed, a glass of buttermilk,  and a feisty old gentleman like myself
