Sweet bull,and sounds like a sweet hunt also.I have been trying to talk my dad into putting in for muzzy in 61 so hopefully some more good bulls will convince him.A friend of a friend shot a 374 bull last week of archery that should help.he has 16 or 17 points and who knows how long it will take to draw unit 2.it seems like it slips a little further away each year.
That area has been pounded since archery season just becuase of all the easy access. You are going to want to be hunting low for this 3rd season hunt if you are looking for a good bull. One more thing it is going to be tough.
You may get lucky and still catch them bugling, to locate them, at first light and right before dark. Good luck on your hunt ! Send me a PM if you would like more specifics.
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....
