Welcome to BGH bowhunting_redneck.

Keep the pressure on and you'll get that shot soon.
Great to hear that you're willing to wait on a good shot opportunity.
Be sure to tell us here when you do.

Redneck, I am here at Oceana as well. Do you hunt on the bases here? Check you messages here and on outlook, I will send you my contact info so we can talk about it if you are interested. If your muzzleloader is a 50 cal or bigger, you can hunt on base with it. I hunt muzzy also and took two deer at Dam Neck last year, I am more than willing to share info with you. We are coming up on the indoc and qual dates for muzzleloader and bow also. I have the info for that if you need it.
