Nice lookin fur on that critter Rowdy! Make a fine hat! Did you put a sneak on him while he was nappin, or bring him in with a predator call? After Christmas Quickfire and I are going after the dangerous and elusive whitetail deer in north central Nebraska. I'm going to make another attempt to put a PRB through one. I've got the .58 cal. double Kodiak and a T.C. Hawken flintlock working good enough that I think a critter within 75 yds. or so is in peril. Hope it warms up just a tad, air temp. right now is about 5 degrees with probably -10 wind chill.
It is far better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!

Good luck on your upcoming Hunt , Hope you can stock up on jerky meat . As for the Coyote I spotted him coming down a grassy ditch and he was after mice . When he got close enough I let him have it .

  130 years old and still putting meat on the table!

  



 My first time using a BP load for any type of hunting. The load pictured above on the right is the one I used and consists of a compressed load of Swiss 3Fg and a bullet from an RCBS 40-180 mould that I cast with straight wheelweights (I know...sacrilege) and weighs 192 grs. So loaded it runs a little over 1300 fps and is really quite accurate out to 200 yds. with an occasional group going under 6" at that range. The buck was just shy of 50 yds. when I shot him, and he bolted at the shot. I stayed put in my little brush blind for about 20 minutes then found him dead as a hammer about 50 yds. away. The bullet entered the left side, low behind the shoulder breaking a rib, through the left lung, drilled the heart dead center, creased the right lung, out between two ribs on the right side, then somehow traveled under the skin several inches before exiting the off side of the right shoulder.

  I'm hooked.

    Lots of ga me to hunt around the house but I mostly leave everything alone EXCEPT hogs. When I have a couple hours of daylight to burn and a north breeze into which I can walk, hogs are the next on the menu! And I'll be after them with my trusty Uberti. 44 Special.

Today   I came across a field full of Buffalo . Now these are owned by a local Farmer . After work I loaded up the wife and we went for a drive and we watched the Buffalo and I snapped a few pictures .

 That'd be me! I finally made time to slip into the woods. Left the house about 10:00 a.m. Saturday, walked to the back of my place and made a big semi-circle from west to north, pausing every 50 yds. or so to call. I finally got into some shady woods, sat down on a mesquite to call one last time. This ol' boy never let out a peep, but the brilliant red, white and blue head cruising through the brush was a dead give away. He stopped behind a chaparral bush, and I waited until I had a decent shot.

 

  Same 1886 production '73 Winchester 38-40 that I used during deer season, with the same BP load.

Was able to call in a Large Tom . This was a real adventure all the rain has made hunting tough . I was able to call him in and shot him at 30 yards . The 87 did an Excellent job ,and the old E loaded with#5 shot was a slam dunk .

Kind of late , but just saw your post , that is a Dang good bird Rowdy. The old shotgun did it's  work for you. Takes a good hunter to bring / call in and kill a turkey within shotgun range  on his own . ,,,DT

Turkey Hunting is a ton of FUN as you know . When you get a old Gobbler to come to your call , well it just don't get any better . The hard part is not to over call . Well Fall Turkey season is months away I guess I could load a few shells in anticipation .

The 76 still shoots good , I like the 45-60 . It's fun to shoot but not  abusive on the shoulder . I have been at our Hunting cabin late in the afternoon and have noticed a good Deer crop this year .
