Anyone got any photos of game taken with your traditional muzzleloaders? Here's a picture of a nice Tom Turkey I took with my .62 smoothbore Tulle

I have been using muzzleloaders now for 48 years in several states and I have been successful many times, but the sad part is that for most of my life I never owned a camera.


Sad


When I did finally get one I was so used to going afield without one that I seldom took it with me.  I bet I have not had a camera along with me more then 3 times on hunts in my whole life.

I think that omission was probably a mistake now that I am looking back.

Well....you have my respect!  I use a camo Rem 870, 26" barrel equipped with a Patternmaster choke tube, red dot scope and 3" magnum hevi-shot #5 shot and still have a heck of time.  You have to possess skill, patience and a little luck to take turkeys with with a primitive long gun.

This was the bird I took last spring on the last day of the season with my 20ga Tulle. I had to go way back behind the swamp to where the birds had gone to get away from the hunting pressure. He's a little ruffled and wet because I dropped him in the water when I was wading back out.



My turkey wing bone call that brings in those big Toms.

Have you ever tried a gun with one of Colorain's "Turkey Choke" barrels?
I have made a few guns with them and when you load them right they are quite impressive.

Choked barrels will extend your range with shot but I prefer to entice them in close enough for my open bore. I use my smoothbores with both shot and roundball and I think an open bore shoots a roundball more accurately. Dunno

A couple squirrels with the .32



A couple antlerless tags filled. Sometimes it pays to carry two guns, .62 rifle and a .62 smoothbore. Very Happy

You are completely correct.  Balls are far better fired from an unchoked barrel.  Chokes are best for shot, not balls

These two deer were taken with one shot from a new gun on it's maiden hunt. A .62 smoothbore loaded with 80gr's 2FF and a patched 595 RB. From 25yd's the ball went through the front doe and almost through the one standing on the other side of her. I like to name my guns, this gun is called "Two-Fer"



A close up of Ole Two-Fer. She's not fancy in fact kinda plain but she shoots like she's hongry.
That white fluff on her  carrying strap is a tail from her first rabbit.

Took her at 80 yards with a Deer Creek Northwest rifle. Basically a CVA mountain rifle with a different trigger guard.
