Found a Picture of a young guy with a moose - 1983 maybe.






What's the modern fancy pancy shooting stick that you are using? What no black powder?!

PS Well done.




LOL- just a pup in that picture. 1983 - 33yrs. old. Modern-type rifle is a VZ34 in .458 2", 68gr. H335 and a 350 gr. Hornady RN, 2,296fps mv. Shot 95 yards, from our day camp, hit above the left eye a she looked at us on a slight angle, pended the full length of the brain, through the 1st vertebrae, 2nd and 3rd, then part or all of the bullet exited the rear of the neck. I assume the bullet followed the spinal cord hole. In front of his head, laying on the moss, was a piece of jellied brain 'tissue', roughly 3/4" in diameter and 8" long. It looked like a skinny dick. I assume when the bullet passed through the back of the brain, the pressure forced this rope of brain material out the hole and it jellied, falling on the moss. I picked it up by one end and said to Taylor, "look at this, jellied brain" We had just eaten lunch, so didn't fry it up. lol

Oh yeah - 675lbs. in quarters hanging at the butcher shop, no hide. tooth came back 9 years old. Just at the edge of not breeding any more, however, he came in to the calls I had been making all morning- just took his time. There were 3 other bulls answering me for 3 hours but would not come in. Maybe I wasn't sounding sexy enough?

True.

But how much better for the bear to spend the rest of its existence as a fearsome beast.

That being said, if you have ever trailed a wounded bear into the thick cover, its an enlightening experience..

Once, very thick cover & it does get the heart rate up. It was a short trail, however.

"Catch of the day! Whopping 900lb, 13ft alligator that feasted on livestock around a south Florida lake for 80 years is shot dead by a hunter

Mississippi hunter Doug Borries caught the largest alligator by an out of state trapper in Florida which was found to be 13ft 4inches long and 905 pounds
Borries found the monstrous creature on a private lake after being told about it from a friend who remembered the 80-year-old gator from childhood
The prized hunter shot the gator on the top of its head using his 7mm STW rifle and then grabbed the creature from the bottom of the lake
The gator's meat has since been used for processing and its head is currently mounted on Borries' wall
Borries posted the incredible find on his Facebook page last month which has received nearly 10,000 shares

By Tommy Taylor For Dailymail.Com

Published: 17:05 GMT, 4 February 2022 | Updated: 19:03 GMT, 4 February 2022

This whopping beast gives a whole new meaning to catch of the day.

A Mississippi hunter has caught and killed an 80-year-old, 905lb alligator that measures 13feet 4inches in length at a lake in southern Florida.

But even this monster - an 80-year-old who was known to feast on livestock venturing too near to its lake - isn't the largest caught in Florida. The record for the longest alligator caught goes to a 14ft 3.5inch beast caught in Lake Washington in Brevard County and the heaviest was a 1,043lb one in Orange Lake in Alachua County

Doug Borries, a seasoned hunter who owns Dynamic Outdoors TV, documented his prey on his Facebook page. He has racked up nine world records and 36 state ones for his efforts in both hunting and fishing.

He began hunting for the alligator after a friend told him about a creature he said had been around since his childhood.

The hunt for the massive alligator began for Borries after his friend told him about the creature which was reportedly around since his childhood.

'This guy said hed seen the gator since he was a child. It was time for the gator to go because some of the calves were disappearing,' Borries told WWXV25. 'So, he was down deer hunting with me, and he asked me if I wanted to come and hunt the gator.

'I said, "Absolutely." To me it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.'
Borries found the gator on a private lake in Okeechobee County about 500 yards away using the scope of his 7mm STW rifle.

The creature was then shot at the top of its head after moving 180 yards closer to Borries.

The hunter then pulled the 80-year-old creature out of the bottom of the lake and was taken aback by its enormous size.

'I had no idea the magnitude of how big his body was until we pulled him completely out of the lake,' Borries told McClatchy News.

'It had been suspected of eating some of the local livestock around the lake and was considered a threat.'
The gator's meat has since been processed for eating and the gator's head was mounted on Borries' wall.

His Facebook post showing the huge gator also received significant attention as it has racked up nearly 10,000 shares.

Commenters, however, were polarized over the practice of hunting with some defending Borries for the impressive catch while others have criticized him for killing the creature.

Borries counteracted the criticism after noting the threat of alligators to human life referring to when two-year-old Lane Graves had been snatched and killed by one at Walt Disney World in June 2016.

Big beast, thank you for posting Lancaster; would not like having it as a neighbor!
Don't know if people eat gator's meat in the US' southern states; I can recall eating some in Southern America, much tender and tasty white meat.

Yes, they do, according to the 'gater "fishing" shows on TV.
Deep fried chunks in oil seemed to be the preferred method.

No reason to not eat alligator. Can't see it any different to eating a saltwater crocodile or Nile crocodile.

I like croc meat. Have several kgs in the freezer. Not sure the recipe to use.

I would say the Spencer carbine with the "little" 56-50 is not enough for bison but looks like it happen

" Buffalo my son shot with AS 56-50 Spencer carbine. Starline brass, 37 grains very old vintage Curtiss & Harvey 3F black powder and 385 grain bullet from a 525 gr. FP mold that I shortened."

A wee bison. Hit him in the right spot and it will work. Might take a while though.
