Day 1 October 18th

Sitting at work missing the early muzzleloader opener for the first time in 12 years. How are we doing out there today everyone?

Re: Day 1 October 18th

Had a big doe sneak in behind me with all the wind and rain. Didn't see her till she came around to my left. I didn't spook her, but I think she was moving away from another hunter. She didn't run, just sort of wandered away from me without offering a clean shot. Nothing but squirrels for a couple hours, then around lunchtime I saw another deer feeding quite a distance away. I couldn't even tell if it was a doe or buck, and it fed thru a small opening and then disappeared. Packed it in around 1:00 and headed home to dry myself and all my gear. Just as I got back to the SGL parking lot, I heard a nearby shot and some excited voices. A man and a junior hunter were just arriving back to their vehicle too. I asked if they had had any luck, and the gentleman informed me that she had killed one and missed one. I didn't even notice that the youth hunter was a young lady. Her dad wasn't even carrying a firearm. I complemented her on being out hunting, and her dad on taking her out. It's always nice to see kids out hunting, and especially nice to see their dad concentrating on the kids hunt, not their own.

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

Re: Day 1 October 18th

Took my 13 year old son out tonight with the inline. We tucked ourselves under a big pine tree and watched the fields from a fencerow.


He was offered a 37 yard shot and made it count. His second career muzzy kill. I'm proud of him!

******Have a good one!******
