My Choice....
 
Since rifle and bow season is closed here in Texas, I have been doing some muzzle loading for does and spikes since I still have some tags left. I had a couple does at 175 yards broad side for 20 minutes but did not feel comfortable with the shot. 100 grains of pyrodex pushing a 250 grain power belt sighted in at "0" at 100 yards. I love my traditions LT pursuit!!

anyone that does much muzzle loading have any idea what the balistics or energy is at that range? I know it will go that far but I would like to know how fast it is going when it gets there.

The does fed off of the ROW and a few minutes later a big ol boar hog steped out at 77 yards. Since it was almost dark and I am almost out of meat I let the air out of him. I like the good ol head shot on hogs, I dont like tracking wounded rooters!!!

There is always something to hunt in Texas!!

sorry bout the photo quality buts with a cell phone and its almost dark.

Cool beans. An old timer once told me, when you're killing hogs, to draw an imaginary line from one ear to the opposite eye and do likewise on the other side. Where those lines intersect is where you shoot.
