Thanks guys. That was kind to say.


if anyone wants to look at other types of muzzleloaders, say so, and if I have made that type, (and if I took pics of it) I'll post those pictures too.

I am just into 1851 Navy repros but the wood work on the guns you posted is beyond spectacular!!

Thanks for allowing all of us to see your great work! I, for one, am thoroughly impressed with it and would give anything to be that talented.

As far as I am concerned you can post anything you have ever accomplished. We all love nice guns. You might even get some new work.

Jim

well thanks Jim.

What others do you like.

I have some Jaeger pictures,
some English guns,
Southern guns,
flintlock pistols.

I probably have pics of maybe 20% I have made. Many of my guns were never photographed because I have been building muzzleloaders since I was 14, and I have only owned a camera for maybe 15 years of my life.
I'll be 61 very soon.

Ah yes, I can almost smell the tantalizing aroma of Stegosaurus tenderloin roasting on an open fire.

They had to be when a critter dresses out at around 4000 lbs.

I saw a painting of a scene where prehistoric hunters were standing inside a mammoth's rib cage, butchering, and handing out chunks. I want to do that so bad.

Lee,

You have to learn how to resize your pics to fit the web page, sir.

Otherwise we don't see much of anything. Please do take not that as a cut.

Jim

Yeah, wooly mammoths were pretty big, but not so much as a mastodon which lived about the same time in warmer climes in North America at the time.

I am sure it took many spear thrusts from many men to penetrate the hair and hide of a wooly mammoth. Those people must have learned how to preserve that much meat, no matter the animal, whether is was smoking, drying, or whatever to sustain themselves between kills. I am very curious if they used the liver, heart, kidneys, trunk, tongue, and other parts to sustain themselves and how it was preserved in an era of no refrigeration and how they stored it.

Looking for answers. Anyone have a good recipe for elephant meat?

Jim
