Re: WHAT WAS I THINKING?

You were thinking that a mighty buck would be coming into view the moment you dropped the hammer on that doe. Naaaahhh, you did not lose your mind. Your mind took control of your emotions and told you to wait for another day. Good luck to you and I hope that buck comes into range soon.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: WHAT WAS I THINKING?

Ha! I had one at 10 FEET tonight stopped broadside and I DID pull the trigger...dry-fired. Pan powder was bone dry, just got no spark when I needed it. What the #%$#%$#!!!!!

I couldn't believe it...get that close on State Lands and I have a friend's family that needs the meat bad (they blanked this season) and the Red Gods didn't give it to me?!? Man, I love muzzleloader season, but this one hurt good.....

I live to hunt....and hunt to live!
