8 point down (smokepole)

I was hunting this morning at a farm I have never hunted before and 5 minutes in the stand, this guy strolls by with his nose on the ground. Swollen neck and wet tarsal glands, a full rut buck. Had a nice tall rack, just not real wide. Very glad to get him.

    I used my 50 caliber muzzleloader. It was one of those situations of "right place at the right time"[:)]. I hunted with a friend on his farm. I had not ever set foot on this land prior to that morning, never scouted it, used a ladder/platform stand that he had built and lucked out. I was in the stand 5 minutes and this buck comes walking down a creek about 60 yards away with his nose to the ground. I put a good shot on him taking out both lungs and watched him go down after a short run. This was the last day for blackpowder and I had hunted hard all week without even seeing a spike, so I was glad to get this one.

    Good luck to all and be safe, Don

    Good story. As I always say, if you are to choose between luck and skill, you have to choose luck every time.
    Again, Congratulations!
