    Nicely done! Looks to be a nice head on his shoulders, and a bunch of burger too.

    very nice!!!!!!!
    The majority of those who are loosely identified by the term 'liberals' are afraid to let themselves discover that what they advocate is statism. They want to keep all the advantages and effects of capitalism, while destroying the cause, and they want to establish statism without its necessary effects. They do not want to know or to admit that they are the champions of dictatorship and slavery.

    The white stuff is made for tracking, unfortunately we have it on the ground 6-7 months a year
    I do prefer hunting in the snow with winter white camo
    Only -9 so not a bad day to sit in on the ground hunting

    Tell me that’s -9 C not F ??? I really hate cold, and both those are cold!

    Very nice buck and rifle. The weather here has been unseasonably warm with occasional cold snaps, but the rut really isn't going like it should be. I've already filled my buck tag for the years, but I'd love to just see a buck like that one.

    You can miss fast & you can miss a lot, but only hits count.

    Well done. I, too, shoot the Cowboy in 4570 with cast boolits and deer hunt with it, as well. They are fun rifles to have in hand. Are your sights original? They were too course for my eyes, at least the rear sight, so I changed it out for a Skinner Alaskan. Minus 9 is cold, but I agree, hunting in snow is my preferred way to hunt.
