Missed again...

TWICE! Dumb doe even stood around long enough to let reload, and shoot again. I thought I had hit her the first shot, and she only took a step or two. The second shot There was a bit of limbs in the way, but wanted to put her down. At the second shot 2 does just trotted off like nothing was wrong. Went to look around, and nothing again.

I guess I'm just not meant to get a deer with the muzzleloader.

Re: Missed again...

I didn't have one of those in...Hmmmm. I did have a 200gr hollow point though.

I told my wife it must be a bad luck gun, and that I should get a new one. Hey, that is what I was going with. It didn't work though. Said I should learn how to shoot. She is so cruel.

Re: Missed again...

You must not be keeping your head down or have a severe flinch. Focus on those issues.

Oh I have issues, but not sure those are it .

I don't think I flinched. The second shot maybe, but not the first. The second shot had a bit of a delay. For the most part my gun goes bang when you pull the trigger every time. Most times it's insant. The gun fires everytime without fail. In practice I can normally get over 10 shots off without even so much as a cleaning patch. I've only done it a couple times just to see how many shots I could get off before a misfire.

Could it be me? Sure. It's not like I get easy shots though. They are alway on the far edge of muzzleloader range, thick brush or something.

I guess I will just have to keep trying.

I have to wonder....could a "wife" have made a factual statement! This could be a first and it happened right here on HPA.com.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Re: Missed again...

Hey Hunt/fish, don't get to down. I've been doing this for a long time, and only killed a couple deer. I keep trying though! I went out yesterday and sat in my blind for about 3 hours. About 4:30 had a couple doe come in and mill around at about 40 yards out. I setteled in on one, pulled the trigger, and click. No burn, no boom, just a click. Not sure what happened, but the deer didn't stick around to see how things were going to turn out. If it quits raining, I may hit it again this afternoon.

“did you get all that on camera sport?”

Funny. I'm seeing what you are saying. It doesn't happen very often. Actually it's quite rair.

In my defence I've heard of bad luck guns before. I know a couple guys that swear it's the gun and not them. They say these guns are not capable of hitting anything other than paper. That if you shoot at a deer it will miss every time, but other guns will result in a sure kill. I think that this might just be that case. Again, that is what I'm going with. My 243 results in a kill every time I touch the trigger. That gun I will say is lucky. I wish my muzzleloader was as lucky as that gun.
