1st kill for 08

Postby DaveHawk » Mon Sep 22, 2008 12:16 pm

15 yard shot from stalking position, total pass through, tracking 3 feet.

The home owner wants me to remove a few more so his garner isn't totally lost to these varmints

Dave that's a lot of critter to tackle with just a cross bow. (Sorry couldn't resist).

Several years ago I was at my sister's farm in Gettysburg sighting in my TC 50 cal muzzleloader. That afternoon I saw a big whistle pig walking across her lawn. I grabbed the TC, dropped in 100 grains of pellets and a 295 grain powerbelt. When I touched her off the pig was about 40 yards away. The soft powerbelt slug almost cut him in half! I threw the dead pig in the hedge row. My sister's dogs found him about 4 days later. She had to bathe four dogs that evening and I was told to bury any more that I shot not just toss them in the hedge row.

I had to take out a couple of groundhogs at work this year with a pellet gun. they kept eating our cauliflower. I threw mine out in the tall grass, never did smell it. God bless.
