    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. smoothbore doe.JPG

    Congratulations tallpine!

    I think it's only right to fry some tenderloin for Max. I bet he would agree with me.

    Good boy Max!

    Thanks for sharing, Skychief.

    Well dangle my doodoo's on a hot spit. That's just fantastic.
    Well done Max too.
    A fair distance too!
    Scratch one up for the smoothbore.

    Here in Britain the experts say 8t can't be done :doh:
    Thanks for proving them wrong.

    Excellent! Plus you obviously know how to shoot it, too. I like my .62 smoothbore for deer as well.
