Spent some time chasing big bucks with a muzzleloader, no luck on the big boys but I did manage this little guy with my William Moore 2 groove rifle.





The afternoon was short, Tucker cut himself pretty good not 200 yards from the truck, we made a short loop anyway and were rewarded with two roosters for not giving up. I missed a third bird with Lucy. Now waiting for the Vet to stitch him up. Looks like my season is over a bit earlier than I had hoped but I sure did have fun this year.

Nice. I feel like my season is just (re)starting. Out tomorrow for birds. Should be after deer now.

That's a really nice sporting rifle. What is the caliber/bore? I had a Bland belted ball rifle for a while. About .58 caliber as I recall.

The Moore is a 14 bore or .69 caliber belted ball rifle.

I figured it would be a large caliber. How much powder? The Bland was so light that I was always worried about too much powder, but the large butt made recoil no problem. Not sure it was good for the stock though. Nice rifle.

Last weekend I was walking on frozen mud and thin ice sheets. Today the temperature was in the mid-seventies. The warm days are tougher on me but I'm sure they make it easier for the birds to find food.

Nothing like hunting with a double rifle...

My old gal and I managed one bird that was very hard earned today. We saw lots of roosters, mostly out of range. I shot at two and managed to anchor this one well while cleanly missing the other. Perfect retrieve for Lucy on what might be her last bird. She is really showing her age, she will be 12 next year and has been both a great birddog and companion. Shooting my Holland which I dearly love and B&P high Pheasant shells. Quite happy with the B&P cartridges.
