I was sitting next to a large brook in an area where deer like to cross. After about 15 minutes of sitting a nice big doe and a fawn came through on the other side of the brook, way up on a hill. A few minutes later a lone doe came through in the same spot.
All of them were at 150 yards plus in thick, thick cover. I'd seen all I needed to, so I got up and moved 50 yards closer to the brook. As I was sitting down, a group of about 8 does walked in about 70 yards before crossing. The third doe back stopped on the other side of the brook at just over 70 yards slightly quartering away in a clear spot.
I cocked back the hammer and my Omega belched out a thick cloud of smoke. I reloaded and went to look for blood. I got to the top of the hill and before I could even look for blood I saw her lying 15 yards away. My 250 grain TC Shockwave bullet took out both lungs and just about dropped her.
This was my second deer ever and first with a muzzleloader. She weighted 107 and was 2.5 years old.
