Awesome. What caliber?
.50 cal, .385 grain Hornady Plains bullet over 110gr FF . A young tasty cow. Thanks, Ken
Great job !!!!
I've been hunting muzzy about 9 years now,and love the fact that there are a lot less hunters out there.
and I've also taken 4 Elk with my TC 50 cal.
Yup, next year I'm going with a 50 cal for elk. Just have to keep my powder dry...
It's a lot of fun if you can draw a tag, but frustrating when you see a animal that would be an easy kill with a center fire rifle and out of range with the ML.
That's awesome! Good shooting
Anyone know of a good place to buy a used muzzleloader near Lincoln City?
And percussion cap if your using a traditional!
Lots of guns out there from flintlock up. I shoot a Remington 700 and it is danged accurate. Be real anal about cleaning, and practice a lot. These rifles can be found for $350 or less and a lot less if you get lucky. Pull the breech plug and check the bore. If there is any pitting don't buy it.
Not sure if that's legal in Washington. Somebody smarter than me should chime in.
From the regs:
Muzzleloading firearms must be wheel lock, matchlock, flintlock, or percussion lock.
A percussion lock firearm must use original-style percussion caps that fit on the nipple and are exposed to the weather. “Exposed to the weather” means the percussion cap or the frizzen must be visible and cannot be covered or enclosed by an integral part of the weapon proper.
You mean a rifle like this?
Funny, when hunting this year I say moccasin tracks. I thought it was probably a injun's. No serirously, but maybe it was you!
Good job Joken
I'm proud of you
Hey I got another one this year too !!!
Sweet, but don't make it sound too easy because it isn't.
Meat in the freezer!
Congratulations to the both of you!
