On the third day of muzzeloader season here in Ohio (2010), I was hunting with family and friends. I had a 1/2 mile walk to get to my post and when I reached my spot I was there less than 10 minutes when four deer came out in a single file down along a fence row right towards me.
Three bucks and a doe. The one buck was noticeably wider than the rest and as they came in closer it was tough to tell which one he was through the weeds and grass. As I drew up preparing to shoot the one I believed was the big one, the next deer in line took a couple of steps forward and turned and looked my way.
It was then I knew that he was the wide one I had seen coming down the hill. I drew the crosshairs to his neck, the only shot I had on him, and squeezed the trigger. He never took another step! I was borrowing a Thompson Center Omega 50cal. from a friend when I shot this deer, since then I have purchased one for my own!
