I've taken a crow, a turkey and many squirrels and rabbits with my NSW trade gun I put together back a few years ago but never got around to taking a deer with it. I decided to give it a go in our 4 day Mountain Heritage season here in WV. I was able to take this small one yesterday evening before going to work. I told my wife it was a sandwich size deer . My load was 70 grains of 3F, a lubed felt wad and a patched .595 RB. The shot was 40 yards. Not a very good picture but I was running short on time.
