When I started reading this I thought the guy was joking. Considering how many big gun threads there are, this might just fit in.

We've done this thread a few times...lotta people think that that deer with all the holes is photoshopped. Interesting, though!

Gotta wonder, though . . . everywhere I have lived, using artillery on deer might be against the law. Black powder weapons must have a bore measurement less than 10 bore (.780" IIRC), and fire a single projectile for deer hunting, or smoothbore with loose shot. The bore on that cannon is pretty big, and the shot is contained in a canister. Besides, I prefer to chew my meat instead of having it mechanically chewed by artillery.
