This sow pig was taken right at dark. It weighed in at around 130 lbs. I shot it behind the ear with a 245 grain slug loaded backwards in my .50 cal Quackenbush. It dropped like a sack of rocks. The last picture is the slug retrieved from the neck.

San Antonio axis deer hunt

Kyle Tate took this awesome axis buck while hunting in San Antonio. He used the130 grain Pelletman hollow point in his father's (Terry Tate) Quackenbush .308. The deer's antlers measured  30''x30''


San Antonio axis deer hunt

I took my first axis deer with my .50 cal Quackenbush on Dec. 30, 2002. In the second picture you can see the entrance hole the 277 grain "pellet" made at 50 yards. In the third picture you can see the bulge of the "pellet" just under the skin in the center of the image. The "pellet" broke a rib on entrance almost came out the other side. The fourth pic compares the retrieved "pellet"  to a new one. The final pic is for your enjoyment. The close feeder is at 97 yards.

I was in central Texas on a varmint hunt when this 160 lb pig came out of the bushes at 25 yds. It took a 130 grain pellet between the eyes before it dropped. Man these critters are good eaten!

The second was taken at 60 yards and was shot thru both shoulders which dropped him instantly.


Kansas Yote hunt

I went deer hunting with a friend of mine in Kansas and while I was there I did some coyote calling. The first yote was shot from 5 yards with the .50 cal Bandito, and the second was shot from 12 yards with the .308. Both yotes were called in using Tweety from Verminator.

James Rivera in Wy. wanted to kill a buffalo with an airgun. So I took Bob Dean's 20mm up to him and I also videoed the hunt.
