I took this doe with a .62 cal smooth bore Trade gun at 45 yards yesterday morning. I thought that I had missed her as I found no blood. I went and got Max, my tracking dog and he found her piled up at 75 yards. I built this gun two years ago and have taken many squirrels and rabbits and a few doves with her. These smoothbores are truly an all around hunting weapon and if I could own just one muzzleloader it would be my Trade gun.
