Hey Loggy, thanks for sharing those photos, and the story. That was indeed a memorable trip enjoyed with a terrific group of Pennsylvanians. That God-awful beast Ken shot weighed in around 425 lbs. and was absolutely inedible! He couldn't use the stove in the house for preparing the smelly meat, and the family found they couldn't stomach it even from the grill outside.
I think ole Berks was still enjoying that fine Tennessee adult beverage from the looks of that horn presentation photo. I gave it all up for the better when I turned 70, five years ago.
Ken dropped that hog in its tracks with a Brad Emig .50 cal. "Yorktown" rifle, shooting a .015 patched .490 roundball over 65 grains of FFFg powder!
My "Yorktown" still prefers a .015 patched .535 roundball over a 85 grain charge of FFFg. Now, if I could just figure out the roundball, patch, and powder combination for my 24 gauge smoothbore! Good luck after Christmas!
