I Killed my first four legged critter (crows dont count see) with a cast boolit from my 45-70 today .
the story goes thus "it was a dark and stormy night" ... it was a kindof rainy 2 in the afternoon . "i was in pucker brush tall as a man , visablity was poor. "... i was walking down a logging road in the middle of burn . "with a tramendous roar , that would make the strongest man wet himself, the beast started a charge twards me "... it was running away . "i turned to my trusty gun bearer for my big bore " .... my dumb dog was peeing on a tree . " I fired as soon as i could smell the putrid breath of the beast " .... it was over a 100 yard away i have a stuffy nose and cant smell myself even after hours of work . " the first shot bounced off of the great animal . so i readyed a 490 gr solid for the next shot as my life flashes before my eyes..... 490 gr solids are all that i had in the gun , and if my life flashes before my eyes im going to die of boredom. " this beast, surly, will go down in history as the greatest maneater ever slain " ... it was a puny little coyote ..... but it was a kill nontheless with a cast boolit .
