Got my first deer with a muzzle loader. Haven't hunted in nearly a decade, and finally got on the ball to go this year. Opening day, about 30min before dark, and this guy comes strolling by. .490 round ball and 80gr of swiss, he dropped in his tracks. Gutted him and stashed him, hes too heavy for me to drag by myself so I'm going out in the morning with a friend to bring him home. He was the 4th deer I saw today, I including a little buck that snuck up behind me and got to about 6ft away before he finally winded me.
