Blackpowder Buck the Old Fashioned Way

A nice Hill Country 8 point taken by Tom Compton in far West Travis County Saturday. It had an 18" outside spread, taken with a .54 flintlock Tom built. The load was a .535 lead ball patched w/ .024 denim and lubed w/ mink oil. Powered by a 90gr charge of  Goex FFg Blackpowder.

My brother was big on black powder, well anything mountian man stuff. I never shot one.
Pretty Buck for sure. Bill
