I had this buck that I called “Tines” on the camera in September, but he completely disappeared through all of bow and gun season. I decided to get one last hunt in with my muzzleloader on the 16th, even though I was late getting to my stand. About 5 pm a little 4 point that we had seen off and on all fall came in through the woods behind my stand. I was starting to look away when I caught movement and another deer browsing its way through the brush with its head down. I got the scope on it and waited for it to clear into an opening. As soon as his head became visible I could see three large tines and knew he was a good buck. I had only a few seconds before he reached my shooting lane, and I fired as soon as his vitals were visible. A few seconds later he trotted out from behind the cloud of smoke and I thought I missed! As I scrambled to reload, he fell over! I didn’t miss after all – it was actually a perfect heart shot! As soon as I got to him, I knew exactly what buck he was – it was TInes! I called my dad in amazement, and as always, he came to help me drag him and load him up! This was my first deer with a muzzleloader and my second buck of the year – the first time I’ve ever tagged out! Definitely a hunt and a buck I will never forget!

Was fortunate to take this buck on Friday. Jumped from his bedding cover and I made the shot. Tracked him to property line then had to gain permission from the neighbor to recover him.
