Title: My 2011 muzzeloader mule deer buck
Post by: Roosters Kennel on October 03, 2011, 12:40:03 AM
Well my story starts out last sunday the 25Th of Sept. It was my 30Th birthday and I was hunting mule deer near my home town. I was having a great day finding lots of game "mainly elk". I was on my last push hunting towards my camp and I thought I'd check out one more draw before breaking camp and heading home. As I walked into the draw I spotted more elk and was gingerly walking down towards the bottom when I see this little spike muley looking at me about 80 yards out, well he had me busted good and about two seconds latter a four point jumps up and is staring me down   well in my haste and Lack there of patience With a good broad side shot I must have tickled his belly cuss he jumped four feet into the air. "First thought" oh chit I missed well to my surprise there were four bucks a spike, two 3x3s and the 4x4. Well I reloaded with great speed, the bucks lined out across  the hill 150yards out and slow down Here's my chance I see the 4x4 and decide to hold a little high. Guess what happens when your sighted in at 100 yards and you hold high, you shoot over there back . Well that was it  I watched my would be trophy run away with two other very nice bucks in tow. I get back to camp and my soon to be wife has every thing ready to go home truck loaded down and warmed up.
    So I decided to take my two daughter's back up there on the fallowing Friday, I pull them out of school early and we make our 4 hour drive back to camp. We saw more deer on the way in and a small heard of elk. Well we were just arriving at camp and I was looking down at our camp, and my oldest daughter at age of 7 says  buck,buck,buck I look up as I'm driving to see nothing but horns on the hill side. So I drive past the deer and jump out of the truck obscured from the deers vision, I tell my self "alright Mat calm the hell down and make the shot". I walk back slowly and the buck is 60 yards up hill broad side next to a doe. I nailed him and he dropped like a sack of potatoes, I put one more in the kithen just cuss the first shot was a little high and I didn't want the buck to suffer in the slightest.  After the first shot three more bucks come out from the sage brush Two nice 3x3s and a spike I'm thinking no way It cant be but it was the buck I missed five days earlier. A perfect 4x4 My first muzzleloader buck, first 4 point and the best part was my girls were there to see it all.  PS. yes I did tag this buck seconds latter after the first pic's In the last pic the tag is taped inside the ear
