Nice doe! Congrats. I am going for mine in a couple weeks. Back to Nebraska, for some corn fed deer.

Remember, it's not how many guns you have. It's how many bullets you have.

info appreciated .... understood on the fair weather part .... the older I get, the fairer the weather has to be .. :? .. I've never handled an inline muzzle loader or sabot but have heard good things about both .... sounds like a hunt that will get better with years of retelling .... :D

Congrats Thumb cocker! I'd be interested in more pictures of that Barn! Looks like it has some character!

Congrats on the doe, and I also understand the fair weather as I age.
I now have a couple of hunting house, and both have a heat source.
So on some of those less than desirable days I still have a place to go.

Thumb cocker wrote:The barn was built in the late 30s early 40s as a dairy barn for goats . It had stantions and clean-outs just like a dairy barn for cows . The old timer that built it used to cut his hay with a scythe and pitch fork it loose into the loft . He also had a privy that he used because he" wouldn't crap next to his kitchen ". He lost his goats to disease and never got another heard . He went into carpentry ,built barns, silos ,out buildings and most anything . He built one of my grandfather's dairy barns and he always worked alone .He did the finish work in my parents house too . I grew up across the street from him and his wife . He was uneducated and dyslexic, somehow his buildings were always square and strait .



Sounds like an interesting character with old world craftsmanship skills.
