Wow, great picks. I'm curious about how you knew where to place your camera? Was there water near by or was this just a feeding area you knew deer frequently visited? I ask because I know picking the right spot for a trail camera isn't always easy. In other words I'm looking for tips.
i don't have many tips. my camera is on my familys land, which i have i have watched deer for years now and i learned what they do all summer. so i guess it was easy for me cause there was only one tree, bush looking thing to put my camera on, on a path where i know they travel. this year i have been watching for good trails where they cross a fence and sticking a camera there, which has worked out pretty good too. i am going to take one on public land this year and try my luck.. i would think if you know they are around maybe a little salt lick infront of your camera will help get them closer... thats what i am going to try
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
