Early muzzleloader success

Recommended Posts

Killed my 1st deer with a ML'r last week. Spent 4 days hunting in NY's northern zone, and took a nice 120lb Doe at ~50 yds on the hill behind camp. I've had a wicked dry spell going and after what seems like countless close encounters over the last 4 seasons, it lined up for me. I covered a lot of ground, those Adirondack deer don't give it up easy ... lol   My knees are still on fire, but somehow a nice veni dinner takes the edge off.  We still have almost a week of archery season open here at home, hopefully my luck will carry on.

Thanks wtn! Yep, still hanging around... lol

Family is doing well, same to you! It's been an extremely busy late Summer/fall so far, I can never seem to catch up, but we're keeping our heads above water so that's always good!

Got a teenager on my hands now, I'm not sure what to make of that. She's a good girl though, her and her brother passed hunter safety this Summer and are both looking forward to youth weekend. I have them on my AR-15 with the Fusion 62gr ammo. I'm proud of them both, they really took it very seriously and enjoyed it. I'd be delighted if one of them got a deer!

Nothing like seeing the smiles on their faces when your kids kill deer.  Our youngest daughter, 13 year old, killed an 8 point yesterday afternoon.  Pics and story in the deer room.  

 

I hear you on keeping up.  Our 23 year old, our oldest, had a baby girl back in April.  Our first grandchild, beautiful healthy baby girl.  Posted a few pics a while back probably should post a few more.
