This is my second deer this season. Got her on the evening of the 23rd. Another nice doe weighing 134 lbs. Once again, I was using my Mark Thomas .54 caliber rifle.
Son, Jacob, scored one that morning, but I didn't get a picture before she was skinned. This made three in the family, so it's time to slow down on the shooting. Running out of freezer space.
I hunted parts of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday last week. Saw quite a few more deer, but not the big one, so I didn't shoot. I did have a relaxing time away from the computer.

I have been gone for a few days, taking some time off deer hunt with my flintlock in South Arkansas. Last Saturday evening, I shot a mid-sized doe at about 20 yards with my Mark Thomas .54 caliber rifle. Same rifle that I have been carrying the two previous years. Everything worked right, and I killed my first deer of the season.

Once again, I'm straying a little from muzzleloading, to show you a picture of Mo, on our hunting lease in South Arkansas. Bow season is the only one open, and Mo went hunting last Saturday afternoon. She stuck this nice doe with an arrow from her stand, and then waited patiently to see if any hogs would come in. Sure enough, this 200 lb. boar came in later. She had a small caliber modern rifle in her box stand (just for this purpose). She has had problems with hogs coming to her food plot this fall, and it's legal to shoot feral hogs year-around. She shot this guy at the base of the ear with her rifle, and he dropped on the spot. She was excited. Good job, Mo!
