Last Day of Muzzle Loader Season - .50 Caliber Devastating Results!

twatwa Senior MemberPosts: 2,245 Senior Member
Hunted hard the last two days at my buddies place down in Warsaw, MO. Saw 3 bucks in two days of hunting, had a really big 10 point come in behind me late last night, thought I made a good shot but no sign of a hit that I could see in the waning hours of light. Decided to wait until morning and go back and see if I could find any sign of a hit. A sleepless night for this? Such is hunting!!!!!

    No wasting, cut it up and drag it out.

    where is that tree hugger when it really mattered ?

    Were you trying to bark him ?

    I'll go out on a limb and say you probably missed him

    One more to the right and you have it cut down.

    I was actually kind of relieved knowing I missed, it was really bugging me not knowing last night. Good to know he will be there next fall............. and I thought the muzzle loaders were dialed in, although it is some thick stuff. :cuss:

    It is no oaking matter when you shoot your ash off when a cherry buck comes lumbaring by.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Too bad it wasn't an oak----could have harvested it then.

    Oaky, you just missed a Sumac in the center hit. Killing trees may not be Poplar to some folks but they can just quit their Birching and keep the sappy rebarks to themselves.:jester:

    What grain was that?

    That shot really stumped you.It must have been too fir outta range. Maybe you better look forest next time. I woodnt be happy with that shot myself. No use pineing over it though. Perhaps the barrel needs to be board out to a bigger calibre.

    Next time you should have hemlocked down before going off half corked. Yew need to cypress the desire to teak a bad shot. I know its hard when your aspen in the stand all day, and hes pecan out of the scrub.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Give the guy a break, a Noble effort was made. Sitting in the stand Yew start to Fraser ash off but take the shot and miss. You Weep, you Balsam, you Willow in you misery and then you get over it by calling you friends, Holly and Laurel and go out for some Mesquite BBQ. If all goes well then Yew have Pecan pancakes with Maple syrup in the morning:jester:

    What did that tree every do to you? It was such a good tree. It didn't deserve to get shot, it was just standing there waiting on someone to take it to choir practice. :tooth:

    No, that sap was part of a deeply rooted splinter cell, and was about to embark on a jihad against lumberjacks nationwide. There are many branches of that cell, reaching to all levels of government and our society. They're hoping to kindle a revolution.

    You guys can't see the forest through the trees. He alder shot the buck but...yep you kilt it!

    Rule #1: You shoot it you eat it! How did it taste and how long did you have to boil it before it got tender?
