2019 Muzzleloader Buck

I got this buck on the last morning of our blackpowder season with my 15 inch 209x50 Encore handgun. He may be small but I was glad to get him. The shot was around 50-60 yards and hit him in the neck. No tracking involved.
I can't get the picture to load. It's on the bragging board.

Great job! You shoot their head off and you?ll never have to track one

Chance, thanks for uploading the picture and thanks to all for the congrats. I get some strange looks from people when I break out a handgun during muzzleloader season.

Wheelguns, I got him on some public land about a 45 minute drive from my house. I dodged rain and other hunters all week and with all the rain we've been getting most of it was flooded. I had seen some deer earlier in the week but didn't get a chance at a shot. On the last morning the duck hunters had moved in and it sounded like a war was going on. After things slowed down for them the deer finally started moving. I had some does move through but didn't hang around long enough. About 15 minutes later this guy came out where they had been. He stood there looking my direction like a statue. When he finally turned I took my opportunity to get my gun up and take my shot. He went down like a bag of hammers. Luckily he was in the same direction as the truck. After a short drag by me and a nephew, we quartered him up and gave him to my nephew. He's supporting a wife and three small kids on a single income. Since God blessed me with a deer, I'll pass it along.
