My dad was cleaning up his office at work and found some old pictures. First one is my first muzzeloader deer in 1998. I was 9 years old. I loved hunting with that 54 because I thought it made me more manly and I could load it WAY easier than my dads Hawken with a Buffalo ball. Dad bought that gun to hunt elk in Colorado but I claimed it for deer season.. In hind sight a 545 grain power punch and 110 grains of pyrodex pistol powder was probably not the best youth load.

Next was from 2004 when I was 15 with my dads 54 cal White Bison. The picture is tasteless and that's why I put it here instead of on Facebook.

The other one I'm not sure the year but its my favorite hunting picture. My brother and my cousins. We were doing a deer drive and that doe ran by about 5 yards. My brother missed with his TC omega and I leveled it with the 54 White. You can see the muzzle just above my shoulder. I am the only one in that picture that still hunts. Everyone else got too busy with life.

I dont use a White anymore because Bh209, smokeless powder and sealed breaches are the cool new thing. Don't you know you need north of 2000 fps to kill a deer at 30 yards!? 😉 My dad still shoots a White and we have 6 between us. I killed a turkey with my White Thunder a few years ago.

Nostalgia is a powerful drug. Just wanted to share! Have a good day!

The memories are sweet, just a bit sweeter with a muzzle loader! Make smoke for as long as you can!

Great pics. Still remember first rabbit (recurve bow), first hunt with dad and granddad, first deer etc. I like getting game but memories last forever.
