  1. We covered 5 miles in the snow today according to my brothers app. We had fresh snow on top of the 8-10 that was already there so I’d guess it was close to or over a foot deep. My Dad, Brother and I were all still hunting along the side of our mountain when I cut a set of tracks/jumped one. I followed them down off until it slowed down then I stopped to have lunch and let it settle down a bit. As I progressed on the track I noticed it was heading to an area I have caught them bedded before so I circled up wind and also higher up on the mountain. I slowed way down and was looking for a deer as I got into the bedding area on a mini ridge that descended into a thicker area. Just then as I scanned I caught a deer moving and quickly got over against a tree to rest against in case I got a shot. Sure enough as I watched more doe came into view and they quickly headed up hill to me. I got on the lead doe and dropped her when she stopped broad side @70 yards. Then the trailing doe and fawn ran closer and stopped and I reset for another shot and let it rip. That’s when the rest of the herd ran, 10 total took off and seconds later I heard my Dad touch one off which got me more excited. He’s 73 and my brother and I cherish each hunt he comes on. Where we hunt and how we hunt is not easy so for a guy of his age and shape to do it is impressive to say the least. Turns out his went down in a hurry, @75 yards with his iron sight 50 year old Remington semi auto. My second shot led us on a short track to the doe that was within of my first. Then we had to drag the things out which took 3 hours and a lot of work and man are we beat. I leap frogged my two while my brother took care of pops doe and eventually came back to help me. Weights were 110, 132 and 135 tying my biggest doe. It’s a hunt to remember for sure. That’s a truck load of meat. ; )
  2. Me and pops hammered out a triple on doe today. Spent the last three hours dragging heavy doe through a foot of snow off the mountain. Great day!!!
  3. I use the BMZ too, it can be used in any gun. I was impressed to say the least. and Chef I have only used loose powder, my gun shoots best with a compressed load and I can’t imagine it’d be worse than pellets for any gun. There is a “Select” powder by Pyrodex I may try someday. Supposed be their cleanest powder.
  4. In some guns it’s more than just the breech plug that is the issue. In the Lyman Mustang I own it is the plug and a head space issue on the primer. Bottom line is it’s a better idea to get a new gun than to mess around with something that can fail and harm you.
  5. Looks like they were sparred the worst of it for once. I was going by the forecast. this link shows 10/12 https://www.google.com/amp/www.wktv.com/templates/AMP%3fcontentID=565698921
  6. You can count on 20 plus there. I dug out my snowshoes for the weekend already. We went extra far still hunting last weekend because we knew it would be the last time for that kind of distance.
  7. We are around 20 earlier so we will be at or above 24 by morning. edit to add in West Charlton
  8. If you like to tinker, I've had great luck with Alliant Black-MZ. I can’t use BH209 either so I tried the BMZ and it is good stuff, very clean. You will have to order it most likely as it is not popular or marketed at all. It’s also cheap at Sportsman’s warehouse, https://www.sportsmans.com/shooting-gear-gun-supplies/muzzleloader-black-powder-guns-equipment-supplies/powder-primers/alliant-black-mz-muzzleloader-powder/p/1318670 but you will pay a $25 Haz mat fee. I use that or Goex BP only.
  9. The number of businesses that close shipping by 3-4pm is staggering.
  10. The division of Fedex I work in was closed Thursday and Friday for the holiday. But I’m not sure if that was company wide or by division. With a storm on the way I wouldn’t hold my breath Tuesday if I were you.
  11. Son of a bitch that’s a Chinese web site I linked. I’m gonna nuke that link and put up the actual link.
  12. Go for the Carbon Fiber, Cerakote “Pro”. I want one but they don’t make it in lefty.
  13. Better off learning how to use the internet. don’t buy, I don’t give a shit.
  14. That’s a different site, muckoutlets is not the same as muckoutlet-top Hate to break it to you but you are wrong. We have used this site before and it is legit. We have several pair of boots from there and had no issues.
  15. Now that you have one Browning you will find more you want to own. It’s addicting, you have been warned.
