Default my first deer with new smoke pole

just thought i would let every one see what i had for dinner last night back strap fried, mashed tater`s and biscuits and gravey. if you can see the knot on his neck i thought that was a tummor turned out to be a 240 grain jacketed hollow point. thank you all for the advice a couple weeks ago. next weekend im off to mingo wildlife refuge for a special hunt hope to have more pictures for you. happy new year.

That's a fine looking deer.. CONGRATULATIONS!!

How far away was the deer from you when you shot? What rifle were you using? What powder charge and projectile? Where did you hit it? What kind of damage did the projectile do? And how far did the critter manage to run after you blasted it? I think most of us here enjoy the hunting story as well, and great pictures.

It sounds like you ate like a king on the last day of the year. Back straps have to be one of my favorite parts of a deer. I like to butter fly them, then rub the with a little olive oil, salt and pepper them and throw them on the gas grill until medium rare. Add some potatoes and a salad with about a gallon of hot coffee and it just does not get better then that.

Good luck with your future hunts. Does this mean you like hunting with a black powder rifle?

Congratulations! I too got my first one this year and I can say I will never hunt without a ML again. It's just so damn fun to shoot and knowing you have one shot makes you focus so much more. The feeling you get is so hard to describe, its almost like your a kid on christmas and you got what you really wanted. Good luck on your hunt, that's when I got my big one.

Congratulations...and to be sure you know...muzzleloading is asickness for whichthere is no cure...you can only keep it in remission by going deeper and deeper into it...ultimately stepping backwards to caplocks, then to flintlocks, etc...but it's a great sickness...enjoy!!
