Got a nice 6 point with the muzzeloader, he had 4 points on one side and 2 on the other. Got 3 does, one with bow, one with muzzeloader, one with rifle. With some of the places that I hunted this year 4 deer didn't put a dent in them.
BigE, no pics to post, I don't have a scanner. As soon as I get a chance I am going to try and get some pics on, I think my little cousin has a scanner and can show me how to post pics, since I am lucky I know how to turn the computer on, posting a pic will require a little help. Stay tuned.
Well I wished I had a good old "Big Buck" story to tell you all but fact is I have scored a fat ZERO so far with a little less than 2 weeks left in the season.
The rut is in full swing here now so things could change in an instant but...ho hummm...I dont even really have any prospects yet.
The land I grew up huntin on is now a Golf course on half of it and the other half is leased out to some Big Shots who offered me a spot out by the highway with nary a single tree in the whole 30 acres that would have been my spot for a mere $2500.00. Thanks but no thanks.
So I am left with only one spot within a 1.5 hour drive and I have never hunted this area before and I am having a devil of a time locating any bucks. I also dont have very much time to get to the woods that I usually like to have. Oh well thats why they call it huntin I reckon. Odds are looking pretty good right now that I am gonna get skunked this year......that would be the first time in 20 years that I haven't killed anything.
First make sure your gun is safe, remove the bolt and clean your barrel from the chamber to the end of muzzle. Clean the barrel using butchers bore shine until a patch comes out white. Run a total of 5 separate patches soaked with denatured alcohol through the bore and let dry for 30 minutes. Insert a cleaning rod with a jag and a dry patch into the neck of the chamber. Make sure it will stay there through the next process. Now using another cleaning rod, install a patch that has been coated...
