Day 1 10/19

Good luck today fellow muzzleloader hunters. I was all set up to be out in the blind this morning but a buddy called and he shot a big doe last night and backed out bc after 50yrds of good blood he could see her bedded down in front of him. So we are going in at first light to recover her.

At daybreak,I started picking my way to my treestand on the far side of a swamp about 0.6 miles from the road. I watched a young buck on a mission go cruising by at 8:25. At 9:30, I reached a knob on the near side of the swamp where I could see really well. I decided to find a good spot to sit down and eat my first sandwich, when a small bear burst out of a patch of thick stuff not 20 yards away! He was gone before I could shoulder my inline...drats!!!!!

Sitting in my treestand now waiting for my redemption!

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!

Snuck out a little further to a smaller swamp and found 3 does. Thought about it for a minute and decided to commit to bear hunting since rain is forecast for next Saturday. Might take a doe later today if I see one on the walk out.

Spent most of the day completing honey dew items. I did get most of my stuff in the truck. I will pick up my friend Skip and his stuff tomorrow morning and then drive to Tioga Co. to hunt Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

We may head over to Lyman Run Lake tomorrow afternoon, and make a few casts before heading to the Burnin' Barrel for supper.

Best of luck to all you muzzleloaders chasing deer and bear next week. Aim small to miss small!
