Successful deer hunt with new muzzleloader

Deer hunting in PG county, Maryland.

I harvested a large doe at 10AM on Saturday with my new T/C IMPACT muzzleloader.

After considering a new rifled barrel slug shotgun for greater accuracy, and dealing with a limited budget for a new gun, I bought the muzzleloader to extend my hunting season opportunities.

I had purchased a scope for this muzzleloader, but have yet to use it – the fiber optic iron sights work well in the woods. This doe went down at about 30-40 yards with a shot to the lower neck, hitting the spine. 

There will be no trophy antlers for my wall, but a large amount of venison is headed to my freezer! I definitely recommend a modern muzzleloader for those who want more hunting time with a rifle. Firearms season is not long enough!
