Default My blackpowder buck!

Saturday morning started as a snowy day again here in the U.P, and it was the 2nd day of the muzzle loader season, i went out for the morning hunt and hunted till around noon and only seen a few doe, but i was really anxious to hunt this stand again later...as its normally a better evening stand.
So i went home grabbed some lunch and headed back out for the evening hunt, i got to my blind and within minutes i had a doe come out into the apple orchard i was watching, with the temps in the low teens i knew the deer would be on the move looking to feed...a few minutes later a doe and 3 fawns come out, an hour goes by and now and shooting light is fading fast...i catch movement to my right put the bino's up and 3 more does come out, as i was watching them dig thru the snow for apples i see them all start looking behind me, just starring back over my right shoulder, i new then something had to be comming, then i hear these foot steps comming closer and closer and all of a sudden he steps out 20 yards in front of my pop up blind and stares in the window at me. I played the stare game with him for what seemed like for ever, he then starts walking out in the clearing towards the does, chases them away with his head down turns broadside at about 50yrds i raised my smokepole and took aim and shot. after all the smoke cleared i seen him running real low to the ground which indicated a good shot. He went about a 100yrds and he piled up, he's not the biggest buck but im happy with him.

Congrats man!
I lightened the pic for you so the rack shows better.
I hope you don't mind.
I can't wait to take my first buck with my flintlock.
