well this year hasnt yielded any time to hunt. ive been working day and night, and weekends. i finally got the chance to hunt thursday and jumped at the chance. it was windy and cold, but it was the muzzleloader opener for MD and i was out. i was asked to shoot everything i see on the prepoerty to help with all the crop damage. i told my buddy i would shoot the first thing i see and i did. a spike came wondering out to the alfalfa and i dropped him in his tracks. about 5 minutes later my buddy took a nice 9pt from about 75 yards away from me. all in all it was a great day, i dont know when i will get time to get back out, so im happy as can be with my spike.
