Wow.


I had heard of big shotguns on boats, but that was interesting.

I saw the eight point buck the guy got, very nice. I just realized I shot a nine point buck last year. Being from the left coast we only count one side, eye guards don't count. I keep forgetting, sorry.

Just read at http://www.muzzleloaderforum.com that the WN Dept. of Fin & Feathers investigated this and says it's a hoax. Sorry, but it's a good read.

Yeah, I didn't figure there was much truth to the "hunt" but the description of building and shooting the howitzer was very interesting.
