This has been a good month for me and my family as far as hunting. I killed a good buck with my muzzleloader and my son killed his first deer with his own rifle that he bought with his own money that he had saved on November the 12th. I dont know who was happier, him or me. He was so nervous I could hear his teeth chattering before he made the shot. My buck showed up about two minutes after legal shooting time on election day. He was within 50 yds before I knew he was there. I made the shot at 46 yds and he ran about 50 more yds before taking a dirt nap. He is the biggest buck I have ever killed as far as body size with a live body weight of 189 lbs. The antlers are not the biggest but my daughter was with me and spotted him first which made it a very special hunt.
