Soda pop Actually that's the remnants of a case of Diet Coke that I had bought before my surgery that were forgotten until I got out and started walking. They all swelled and some burst. Most of the full ones got used for targets. The rest will be.

I like the classic lines style and feel of the traditional BP rifles. I especially like the smell of BP when you shoot.

Did you use BP or the synthetic.

Mine Hawken is a TC kit I built in 1977. It shoots great.

I used 90 grains of Pyrodex and a .530 round ball. Mine was built from scratch by a dude in Indiana name of Mike Lange.

Congrats Hawg . . . . I knew I hadn't seen Bambi for a while.

Don't apologize for the truck . . . just shows that it's a working truck . . . your's looks uncluttered compared to my farm truck.

Nice shot . . . . I'll bet you're having venison for the holidays! Thanks for sharing the photo and good luck on your future hunts!

Going out for more target practice Saturday. Couldn't stand the waiting any longer so I went out and brought new boots and some gear just to ease the restlessness

Nice one by the way Hawg.

That should make some nice burgers! Now, you just need to go over by the old elementary school in Sharon and get one of the recently sighted bears.

Will all be steaks. I don't eat deer burger or sausage. I'll leave the bears for you. I like my freedom too much.
