    Muzzle Loader Buck Down

    Was pretty much out to get a doe tonight. Had not seen anything of any size in a while.

    I was up in a two man ladder stand watching an overgrown field that the deer like to come out to feed in late in the day. At about 4 I had two does come by at about 60 yards but they were moving right along and kept looking back down the way they came up. If I could have gotten a good standing shot I would have shot, but I have until the end of January to fill the freezer so I was not shooting unless it was perfect.

    They moved along, and then after a few minutes two more does came running up thru the field with this buck behind them. He was running at times and then trotting after them. I mouth grunted loud several times, but couldn't get him to stop in the open. Finally, I grunted again and he stopped at about 90 yards broadside. Put the front sight on, and touched one off on the 54 Cal Hawken, with the hair trigger. He went right down, but as I was reloading he appeared to get up and went behind some brush. Now I was a little concerned about him moving off like that. After I was loaded I climbed down and snuck over there and saw him up on his front legs, but apparently unable to move too much. I hit him again. After the second shot it was over. First shot had taken his spine out, but they can still move a good deal on the front legs. I know from experience. lol Heading out now to get him skinned out. Will let him cool down over night before boning him out in the morning.
