When this hunter hit the woods with his vintage 30-40 Krag, he was hoping to harvest a doe. He was in for a pleasant surprise.
The 30-40 Krag was developed in the 1890s to replace the 45-70 in guns toted by U.S Army soldiers. Believe it or not, the cartridge, shooting a 220-grain bullet, was considered a small bore at the time.
Watch the video to see what the 30-40 Krag can do to a big Pennsylvania whitetail.
Wow! Nice buck!
Taking a big buck after years of waiting and passing up smaller bucks is always special, but doing it with a vintage rifle like this hunter’s 30-40 Krag is icing on the cake.
