I'm a bit in shock after having this whole hunt happen so
quickly and actually result in getting this beautiful buck!
He's got 13 scorable points and had the biggest neck of any
buck I've ever taken. A TRUE Ozark mountain giant buck. Outside spread is 19
inches, rear times are over a foot long.
The .54 caliber English Game gun, which fired instantly even
after being loaded for 3 weeks. Note sling pulled tight around butt so gun has
no extra motion of a swinging sling when you pull gun up to shoot. The gun only
weighs 5 pounds and is a very powerful, yet light gun.
This gun was broken completely through the wrist, so I fixed
the poor unwanted cur and even added a little incised breech carving to spruce
it up a bit. The break went right through the silver thumbpiece and angled
forward towards the trigger. It's invisible now and worked quite nicely. Taken
with a broken gun or not, this magnificent buck will be mounted and placed in my
new home, once I get it re-built! Good luck to all of you out there!!!
