Here is my first kill with the Ruger Old Army my Father-In-Law gifted me. It was a 25 yard shot quartering away hard. Entry at front of ham, and never recovered the bullet, but it did stay inside the hog. She weighed prolly 100-120# and ran 75 yards.

First with a smokepole. Fun gun to hunt with and helped me knock out one of my three goals for the year. Back to hunting with the stickbow, just a little more enjoyable way to hunt for me.

Got this at 11:00 am, 3 point, broke his back, for some reason no matter how much I try to shrink the photo size, still says failed to upload. But, 2nd deer of the season, and with muzzleloader 😀 using a CVA Bobcat, patch and round ball, fixed iron sights, not bad considering I paid $65 for this back in 2005, who says you need to spend a lot on a fancy rifle when simple gets the job done😀

Hiked higher up the mountain than I've been all year. Very steep oak ridge that has critters of all kinds (squirrels, coons, deer and bear) working it over. I was sitting on a giant chestnut oak that had fallen when Irma came through. First doe came from my south at about 8:15. 70 yard shot with my rifle propped on my knee. After I heard her crash, I took a breakfast break and let the woods calm down. At about 9:00, I slipped across the ridge back to my north just out of curiosity to see what was over the next ridge. Caught movement coming my way. Another big doe hit the ground with about an 80 yard offhand shot. TC Black Diamond with 250gr Shockwaves.

Freezer is getting full! Thank you Lord.

Due to the idiot,looking for his cell phone and plowing into the back of my car while I was at a red light, today was my first day of hunting this season. I could not draw my bow.
I met my friend at his land and he went one way and I went to the edge of a swamp.
He had deer under his climber at daylight and shot two in 10 minutes with a .50 Hawken Style rifle. He saw 11 in all.
I saw eight deer but it was still so green in there I could not get a shot. I climbed down from hang on at 11:30 and as I was getting ready to walk out I saw a deer coming from the swamp about sixty yards.
I was using a scoped muzzleloader as I never got to shoot my flintlock and get any practice in with the wreck, doctors and new car shopping.
Turned out to be a good sized spike. Ran about 50 yards but left a stevie wonder blood trail. Hornady 250 gr SST passed through both lungs.
First picture is my friend still in his stand with first deer down.
