I am blessed to have a place to hunt that holds several mature bucks.

This year I have been humbled, more than once, by these great creatures. I'll get to the other stories later.

My muzzleloading started out on the 13th. of October with me getting on a pretty big 10 point at about 9:30 am.

I usually only still hunt and that was what I was doing that morning. Easing from swamp to thickets and back again. I was shocked when I came up on that 10 pointer. He had all a man could wish for in Arkansas.

There he was, standing broadside at only 40 yards. I could not get a clean shot because of the brush I was in. I was looking through my scope for an opening, when I saw him move his back leg. I fired and clipped a limb.

I'm sure that plenty of you have had that same sick feeling that came over me at that moment.

I decided to hunt him hard. Big mistake!!!

By the end of the week, on the 21st., I pushed him over to another hunter. He got him with his bow. That's just the life of hunting mature bucks!

Congradulations to Brad Taylor!

That's the Petit Jean river in the background. I'll say that he nets about 160.

At least a good friend of mine got him!

More later...
