A bonus buck

Postby ShootnMathews » Sun Dec 11, 2016 3:43 pm

I got invited to go out with a buddy for the last day of muzzleloader season. I went with him more or less expecting to not see anything and probably help him drag a deer out. Somehow I managed to not freeze before him and he texted me that he was heading my way. Only a minute later this 4.5 year old 8 point trotted right up in my face. 17 yard shot. This is my first muzzleloader buck in muzzleloader season. I did kill a 10 point once with this muzzleloader but on opening day of rifle season. This buck is a typical 4.5 year buck in my area. Scores MAYBE 105". 15 3/8" inside spread. 5" bases.

He was determined to go. Sucked up that 50 cal double lung shot and hauled it for almost 200 yards.

That's my third one for this season. I killed that yearling spike with my longbow. I thought it was a doe. And then the 10 point in rifle season and now this buck. I think I'm going to try for a long range doe now.
