Fallow deer buck taken with antique rifle

Dear Friends!

Please let me evoke the chronicle of a very special event, which deserves the attetion of all black powder enthusiasts and of admirers of traditional hunting methods.

These days,  the adaption of new and newer technologies eases the way of hunting. Of course, there are some who choose a different path. For those people, giving chance to the game is not a hallow phrase. And I know a man who lives this tradition – his name is István Bagi.

István and Károly Csapó – his official guide – went to hunt a ratting fallow deer buck with an antique muzzleloading rifle. This did not happen in Hungary in a hundred years. Enjoy the story of the first thophy game taken with black powder rifle, in the modern era.
