Opening day of Muzzle Loading Season

Postby C. Richard Archie » Sat Nov 07, 2009 6:06 pm

Abbreviated morning, had deer on the trail before daylight, could hear them, but they were just shapes. Had to be a bunch of does and fawns, sounded like a herd. They fanned out and started picking up acorns, could hear them rustling through the woods.

As it got light enough to see, a skunk came down the same trail, nosing around the woods lot. I could still hear a few of the deer, and finally a big doe stepped into an opening that I knew to be dead on 100 yards, high lung shot and she dropped right there. I reloaded and watched the others break out and run, another stopped at about 60 yards, and I put her down as well. I was out of the woods by 6:30.

Gave one to the Hunters for the Hungry, the other will be ground for jerky for my nephew in the sand box!

Wow, you both have done pretty well so far. Kentucky for me was so-so because of bad weather. Tennessee rifle has started windy, warm and wet....

Congratulations.
