Congratulations and some nice eating and some nice Shooting as well!
I was on another site today and they now have scopes that pair up with a Cell phone, scope and a satalite follow the directions and apparenty you can't miss no matter the range. I thought it was called fair chase where the animal is supposed to have a fair a chance of surviving such an ordeal?

Congratulations! Good eating there. It's a good feeling of accomplishment to take game "old school".

That is a great looking Hi-Wall. By the way, have you made out your will yet? I could give it a loving home and it would be a great companion for my 38-555.

sorry, its spoken for already. I will be using another high wall for our last 2 days of rifle season to see if I can connect with it. that's a great looking rifle!! I am currently in the market for a 38-55 myself If anyone knows where there is a decent "user" gun and nothing fancy.

"old school" for me has been hunting with flintlocks for the last 30 years, heck these guns are "high tech" for me Smiley

That's some nice work. I shot a buck a little lower than it looks like you did. He wandered off through the brush with his tail straight up an wagging. I tracked him 50 or 60 yards through some fresh snow and found him laying there deader than Abraham Lincoln. The 470 grain flat point 45-70 bullet hadn't penetrated the chest cavity but had hit the bottom of the briskit. When I gutted him out the only damage I found was a bad bruise on the bottom of the heart. It says a lot about the killing power of big soft bullets.
