I too am close to finishing a Hawken style .50. It sports a slow twist GM barrel, Pecatonica stock, and shoots real good.

Best, DB

I have a .58 Hawkin style and a .54 in the same configuration with a longer barrel and have not killed a thing with either unless you count steel targets. :lol: That Laural Mountain Forge I got from Track of The Wolf is the best brown muzzle loader barrel finish I have ever seen or used.
I love White Tail Deer as I grew up hunting them without success. I've killed a truck load of black tails and a couple of Mule Deer but never a white tail.
They just seem to be the Royalty of the deer family to me and that dude is a monarch! Nice going!

I been sort of hoping it would brown in time :roll:

Your right about the white tails. They dont get to old here in my local but the good food they get here beans and corn some milo makes them into a fine critter. A lot of the B&C have been taken here.

I hunted a very large double drop tine for three years that carried his nose just above the ground form a neck wound. This guy had a gray face when they found him in the ditch along side the road.

The reason a dog has so many friends is because he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Kurt that's a very nice buck taken in a great manner. Congratulations.

Obviously everybody has had your experience. The times I remember is when I've had a good opportunity and blew it because of a missed shot or wrong move. All the other skunked years just blend together.
