Outdoor life field and stream early 70's
Had a nice story kid's 1st buck . Kid shot a 4 pt with a '97 win and 4 buck -but ..listening to many french and indian war guys here like author bob bearor ..buck was popular then ..it had a pot shot sort of moving target (those nice slow firing flintlocks)-'maybe get lucky" idea-"maybe wing it" -plus in 1800's they ran dogs for deer . Many guides shown with sxs 12's ..usually with dogs .
No animal's worth wounding use a deer call by "woodswise" take a nice shot and pass on everyhting else .
