Default MI Muzzloader Buck 2017

Last day of Michigan's muzzleloader season was Sunday. Feeders are legal here in South Central Michigan. With about 10 minutes of light left, I see a 7 point making its way through the woods, but stopped and stared up at the feeder. This guy was 30 yards away and ahead of all the others going towards the feeder. I leveled the triumph in the clearing ahead of the buck and when he stepped into it, Boom! 110 grains of BH 209 pushing a 250 grain Monoflex in the supplied sabot. Deer was down at the shot and never got up.

Bullet passed right through , and took out the top of the heart, turned the lungs to jelly and exited the left front shoulder. No fragmentation that I could find. After pulling the hide, the entrance and exit holes were the size of golf balls. Deer was 178 pounds dressed.

Dandy! Congrats!

There were a ton of large antlered bucks shot in lower MI this year, with a few from the U.P.

Love the color of his antlers. Going to save that picture and see if I can come up with a matching color for a gun stock. That would be nice. Have 2 stocks I need to redo and that color just snapped into my attention span.

Nice buck!! Sounds like the Monoflex bullet worked well. I picked up a couple of packs of them (with sabots) at a store closing last spring and have yet to try them.
