Default Big Muzzle Loader Buck Down

I'm a little late posting this, but, I got him on Thursday of the second week of the Muzzle Loader season in Fluvanna. It was so windy and rainy (if you remember)that I didn't even go out in the morning (I hate wind but don't mind the rain).Well there was a lull in the weather about midday so I decided to go out and stay until dark. In all Honesty, that lull was the bestfew hours ofAutumn that I have experienced so far this year.He came cruising to the right of me around 2pm. It was over quick. I fired and he ran about 20 yds. When he stopped I could see massive amounts of blood coming out of his exit wound. I knew I had made a good hit on him. About 15 seconds later he keeled over never to get up again. Needles to say I was ecstatic.I was so pumped wit adrenaline I had to take a time out in my climber for an hour before Icould come down (safety first!). He's an 8 point, 170 lbs, 20 inch spread. The worst part was the drag because my comrades were hunting on a different piece of property so the I drug him myself to my truck. I was smokedby the timeI got back to the house.

Yes I hunt with a Club in Fluvanna. Gun Season has started and on the weekends we drop dogs kind of messes up my still hunting but they haven't gone totally nocturnal yet.

Really good group of guys. There are some VERY good old hunters in that group of men. Not sure about the younger ones.
