13 year old harvests bison with Sharps black powder rifle

Hi John,

This is Ed Berkheimer's daughter emailing you. My dad, Ed Berkheimer, just returned from a buffalo hunt at the Spike Box Ranch near Mullen, Nebraska. He took his grandson, Tyler Long, out to shoot a buffalo.  It was a successful hunt:

  • Used a 74 C. Sharps Arms 40/70 caliber rifle.
  • 1 shot at 200 yards.
  • 2nd shot at 180 yards.

Tyler Long is only 13 years old and is the youngest black powder shooter to kill a buffalo at the Spike Box Ranch. The guide is Dan Neal.
