Killed in Bath Co., VA. on November 14, 2005. He was on his way back to his bedding area from a oak flat up on the ridge. This was the first deer I had taken with my new Encore, my first with a muzzleloader.
150 grains (three pellets) of Hodgdon Triple Seven and a 250 grain Shockwave, made for easy tracking. The buck dropped within 30 yards. He is a main frame 8 with a 1 inch kicker on the back of his right brow tine.
