Single barreled shotguns killed lots of game back in the day . Did you have a good time while out hunting , that's the most important thing .

I had a great time!  Looking forward to Autumn and Winter again next year.  But first...I hope we have a long hot Spring and Summer so I can't do a lot of Vintage Scuba Diving!!!  Once I put the double hose regulators and old steel tanks away, out comes the 1940's canvas brown jacket and the Iver-Johnson 16 Ga. Champion!!

Hunting season is around the corner . Plan on shooting a few familiarization rounds this week . Trying to figure out what weapon to hunt with this fall . I  plan on carrying my NCOWS pistol from USFA  this fall .  The 45 Colt does a great job at pistol ranges .

Well it's almost Muzzle loader season . I went out and shot my TC White Mountain carbine yesterday . It shot Great , now in the past I have always Hunted with a TC Pennsylvania Hunter which is a round ball rifle . I have taken 21 Deer with that Rifle but this year I want to try the carbine . Yesterday when I shot the carbine it shot real good I sighted it in at 50 yards . That will work in the Woods that I hunt in . I am a fan of big side hammers , I guess I watched Jeremiah Johnson to many times as a kid till NOW . I just want to HUNT .

It's been awhile since I've posted anything here, but figured folks might find this interesting.
Montana buffalo hunt , original 1876  Winchester  45-60 caliber. Though I've never preferred hollow point boolets, this cast of 40-1 shoots the best in the old Winchester, and I guess I can't complain about the performance. Boolet recovered in the hide on the off side,  broke through ribs entering and exiting, really excellent in putting her down. She only went maybe ten feet , of course shot placement is critical, but it was good to see.  Shot was at a little over 90 yards and she was moving a bit.
 Boolet is cast at .460,  and weighs just shy of 360 grains, 60 grains of Olde Eynesford 2ff, .2" compression,  and thin card wad,  she'll keep 'em all on a playing card at 100 yards if I hold steady enough.
 Deer hunting starts in a couple weeks, I'll be toting the ole' 76. ;)
 Good luck hunting all,
 Big Goose

I started planting oak trees on the Farm a couple years ago . When the rest of the farming world is at war with trees . So I plan on planting oaks to start with . I have planted trees from moss oak nurseries . I have also collected acorns from the woods . I have the acorns in the frig in a bag of potting soil . This spring will get them out and plant them in pots and then late in the fall will move to the woods . Wish I would of started this 20 years ago .

When I was bow hunting about 20 years ago, I noticed some white oak acorns that were
sprouting, I put them inside over the winter and planted them in the spring. They are now
about 12" diameter and 30' tall. They will be mighty oaks long after I'm gone.

Those Deer  love you for planting those White Oaks . And the Turkeys like those acorns too . I have always loved to Hunt , just figured that would be a good thing for Future Hunters . Hope some day my grandson's will sit under these Tree's while on a Vintage Deer Hunt . Hope they use my 73 and my 76  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Well Turkey season will be here before you know it . I love hunting and eating them , don't know which I like the best ? They are excellent eating . Our season opens in April and ends in May . I guess I better start practicing my calling , love to call them in close and then smoke them with my 12 gauge .

Season opened with lots of birds on the move .Watched 3 Toms with a large group of Hens . They put on a first class show trying to out strut the other . Now when the Tom's are with the Hens you can't call them away . So never fired a shot maybe next time .
