I hunt with a Muzzle loader all the time as where I hunt is shot gun only. I have a Knight 50 caliber Master Hunter just bought a Mountaineer 45 Caliber 1-20 twist haven't shot it yet I had eye surgery and have to avoid the recoil for awhile
Just filled my Washington Desert unit tag. 150 to 200 yard shot with my Knight big horn. Shot around 7:45 am I passed on two very little bucks but I almost shot the 2pt but I didn't. So glad I passed on the little ones. Well here is my first trophy Mule deer.
My buddy and I bagged are first muleys last season with are Bighorn rifles. The one on the left was shot at 250 and the one on the right only gave me a neck shot at 150 yards.... Both were killed with in a 1/2 mile and 8 hours apart. Republic, Washington. 2011 season
Blktail deer shot at 20 yards or so on Cypress island,Wa The first pic is where he was beded down and yes I shot him in the head. Blktail don't give you broadside shots some time. If you have a head shot at close range you take it.
