    My dad and I went walking yesterday for one last effort at finding a nice deer he had shot during muzzleloading. We have looked for hours and miles for this deer. I have crawled through thickets that a rabbit wouldnt even go in! Go figure we walked right back to the last place I jumped him and he was laying 30 yards away in an opening surround by brush. We must have walked by this deer 100 times. Persistence pays off!! This is my dads best deer and he couldnt be happier to have recovered it!

    GREAT!!!
    All i can Say is WOW!!!! Muzzleloader? That's Awesome and i don't blame you guys, I would have keep looking for this deer myself. I shot a decent Buck with my Bow this year and hit a limb and made a bad hit but like you guys, I was determined to find him dead or see him alive again but i got lucky and found him the very next evening but he had gone close to 600 yards and looked like he died running because he was laying right out in some Virgin timber and i spotted him about 80 yards before i got to him....Congrats on never say never....And to be with your dad...Thats AWESOME

    with dad
    Thanks GT..we are very excited...i have been lucky enough to kill some pretty nice deer over the years but it means more to me too see my dad kill a nice one. Oh and he did kill it with a muzzle loader. It was the thursday of opening week and about an 80yd shot. Obviously we didnt know how well he was hit because we didnt find much blood and I jumped him when we went looking. Just happy we found him. He will be at the classic to get scored as well my crossbow kill from this year. Its about thunder chicken time!!!
