    Daughters first buck with cast bullet

    My daughter got her first whitetail buck today with a muzzleloader. She used hand cast 45-70 bullet sized to .452 in a sabot. Worked like a charm at about 75 yds in a CVA optima pro with 110 gr of pyrodex. Click image for larger version.

    A huntress is born! And she used a very substantial load to do it. I bet your smile was bigger than hers.

    Great job on her part and you now have a hunting partner after doing a good job of teaching her. Tell her we are proud of her and her hunting skills.

    Great job Lil lady! Nothing like getting young ones into hunting. I bet it was hard to tell who was more excited at that moment.
    Proud father and daughter congrats.

    Well done! I also got the gift to be with my daughter when she got her first deer, also
    With cast! My favorite hunting memories by far!
