    First Muzzleloader Deer

    Well, I got my first deer with a muzzleloader this weekend, yesterday to be exact. Shot him at 9:15 in the morning and found him around 2:30pm. Shot through both shoulders, just in front of the heart, and hit the front of one lung. We tracked him about 1000 yards onto the neighbors. I've never seen a deer go that far on one lung with one broken shoulder.

    Thanks everybody. I came home and resized the images on my computer, so they should be up now. he's got really interesting tines on his left side, he's got 11 points total.

    I've bow hunted since I was 16 but I've never shot a muzzleloader until a few weeks ago when I bought my first one. This is probably my nicest buck to date. Saw a LOT of rutting-like activity yesterday morning this buck ran a little fawn around a field, just an hour before a smaller buck came and ran off with the fawn's momma. It's getting close!

    Congrats on your first deer with a muzzle loader! I've got a rack with those acorn points in the shop. Wonder what causes that?

    I’ve heard they developed after getting hit while in velvet. Most of the time when you see them they are of the same height.
