    I've killed 3 deer and 2 wild hogs with my large bore Johnathan Browning Mountain Rifle in 54 cal w/PRB. I've killed 2 deer with a TC Hawken in 50 caliber using Maxi Bullets. Scads of squirrels and rabbits with my 32 caliber squirrel rifle w/PRBs AND for the winged creatures I use my double barrel 12 ga. Been shooting BP for over 35 years, off and on.

    Default My biggest

    My biggest to date with a muzzleloader is a New Mexico elk. Got him with a T/C Encore, 50 cal. He came to cow call, shot at 50 yards and still coming. First shot, lung, stoppped him; he turned around and the guide kept calling. I reloaded while the bull tried to bugle, pretty hard with a hole punched through. Shot again and he took a few steps and went down. What a sight! Mark

    Quite a few whitetails with my .50 Hawkin flintlock and one whitetail with my .50 T/C Omega Z5. A turkey with a 12 gauge SxS Pedersoli percussion.

    Hope to add a moose to the list before leaving AK.

    I have taken quite a few whitetailes and hogs, I have also taken a good sized black bear as well with one. all thth a 50 cal Hawkins. I am going to hopefully take another black bear this May. I like the old patched round ball. it has worked on all of them so far. Big hogs, bucks and a black bear.

    I have only used my blackpowder weapons for reenacting and target so far. I have everything except time and patience to go hunting.

    man o man, a 58... I put a full load (max according to specs) in my 50 one and only one time, and had a mark on my shoulder for 2 weeks. I went out and bought a butt-pad.

    Do you have a pad on the butt of your 58, or a steel shoulder?

    With that power you must takem down even if you dont' quite hit the mark - is that so?

    several whitetail deer and a southeastern black bear...t/c thunderhawk .50. i was going to take it on a coastal brown bear hunt, but the losing sight of the bear after you shoot made me think twice....there is always next year.
