My knees have been giving me fits all summer. A few weeks ago I was talking to the guy I go out there with and told him I was probably going to skip this year because of them. He's a few years older than my 64 years and gave me this sage advice: He said " Hoss, this is my theory, at our age,if it's at all possible to go, GO, because next year you really might not be able to go." He allowed that he looked at every year as his possible last year to be able to go. After considering this, for about 0.2 seconds I told him I was in. I'm leaving 3days ahead of the rest of the crew and taking 2 days to drive the 950 miles, I'll get there about 10:00 or noon Wednesday and have everything at the cabin setup and ready to go when the rest of the crew gets out there late Thursday and into Friday night before they all get there. I did this last year and have got to say I really enjoyed the drive out there and even the trip home traveling alone. Set my own schedule, stop when I want, spend the night when I want and I run secondary roads the whole way, as soon as I get out of Arkansas I get off the interstate and hit the back roads. Always hated the trips when we always ran 100mph and drove 14-20 hours straight through. Now I enjoy the trips out and back almost as much as any of it. Just takes a different mind set.

Was going to wait until December to get serious on deer hunting.  Got a couple nice buck pics on cam last weekend and saw a nice one while hog hunting Sunday.  So pulled to bow outta the closet and going to hang a stand tomorrow and see what happens.

Good luck in Colorado Sam! We're heading out in a couple days for ML season. Went camping last weekend and on the way home missed hitting a doe that ran out in front of us. Looks like the fall temps are moving in for a few days anyway.

Good luck to the ML hunters.  I will be working and hopefully get some time off during the weekend to bowhunt at least once.

Muzzleloader Season starts tomorrow. Getting things together for Sally & I.

Last week-end I checked zero on both muzzleloaders. Sally shoots a White G Series Muzzleloader in .504caliber  photo's. The bullet she shoot is 460gr No Excuse RN all lead. The 3 shot group was 100 yards. I had the stock professionally cut to fit her & a Kick EEZ pad installed, the barrel was shorten 2 " & re-crowned by Denny Tubs so the balance of the muzzleloader wouldn't feel awkward for her. photo's 2 & 3

It was kind of scary shooting this since the stock was shorted to fit her & me being so tall & long armed thinking the scope was going to pop me in the eye. I folded a beach towel to extend the stock length.

My muzzleloader is a White Super 91 in .504caliber. The bullet I shoot is a 496gr. all lead slug called the Trashcan developed by Jeff Weedling. My White loves this bullet & shoots it very accurately, 3 shot group @ 100 yards with one bullet went threw the same hole. We both like shooting heavy lead which gives us large leaky holes.

My back board on my home gun range is 2 sheets of 4ft by 8ft 3\4 exterior plywood stacked on top of one another for a 8ft by 8 ft back board. NO stray was found.

Sally's trigger group when out on her when I started loading it yesterday . Went to pop a cap & the trigger is froze. Removed the trigger & the spring was laying sideways in the trigger frame. What's the chances of that? I've owned this muzzleloader since they 1st came out in the early 1990's. I had the stock cut down & the barrel shorten so it will fit her correctly. The trigger is a Bold Trigger & they are no longer in business. I email Doc White of White Muzzleloading asking if he hand any or if this could be fix.

She'll shoot mine, be a bit long for her but she'll manage.
