BUFFALO HUNT

Post by airwinky »

Big Buff Down...
Success in New Mexico !
Hunting buffalo the traditional way with my MVA sighted Shiloh Long Range Express in .45-110.
I've owned this rifle for nearly 25 years and often imagined hunting buff with it, but the struggle was really, really, real trying to build good ammunition. The regular learning curve, controlling fouling and the like, but a while back I finally came up with a couple good recipes for accurate loads, and started looking around for the right hunt..
I have always wanted to try to take one of these amazing animals with the old rifle... and Saturday I took this incredible bull at about 100 yards after a good stalk.
High adventure chasing the big shaggys on the beautiful Rancho de Chavez with LaMont's Buffalo outfitting !
Dream come true kinda stuff for Wink !
Enjoy the pics.

Nice buffalo! Well done. I believe hunting with a BP rifle that you worked and struggled to find the right load and gain proficiency in shooting pays respect to these amazing and iconic animals.

Airwinky,
That is just fabulous!!! How much meat were you able to harvest from that bull???

A buffalo hunt is one that I dream about but doubt if I will ever be able to do.

I wonder if my 45-70-405 would be enough gun for one of those huge critters???

I am right now starting to get into paper patch bullets so we shall see how this works out.

Super nice photos,I look at them often and wish.................................
