No deer so far.  Got my daughter on a great 8 point but she couldn't get the shot off.

So far All I'm seeing are coyotes in my favorite spot.  I haven't shot them all, but I am starting to get the numbers down

Kodiak, what caliber is that international stock? I have a 243, my first rifle my dad got me when I was 11. What scope do you have on it?

It is a 250/3000.  It is the older model with the tang safety.  It has a burris mini 4X from the '80s.

All three were females.  We've shot 7 since deer season started.  Saw 2 more this morning but I couldn't get a shot at them.  We're seeing far less deer than normal and more coyotes than we normally see all year.

I stink!  I'm doing nothing for my crew.  Arkansas hunting plans fell through (kinda the story of my season thus far) and only one place to hunt in Indiana, and that not an optimal situation.

We're in the closed week of the season now, so I won't be able to get back out til next week.  Gonna work as hard as I can to get some points on the board until it's all over with on January 7th.

I hate the way Indiana works their season.

So, I went out yesterday morning determined to put some points on the board for team Got Dat Wood and I carried my muzzleloader instead of my bow.  I don't normally hunt with a firearm but it's getting late in the season so I broke from my norm.

I loaded it up with pyrodex pellets I've had for a while and got on my stand around 7:45.  Hadn't been sitting down 10 minutes when a respectable 8 point walked down the hill, crossed the creek and walked straight for me.  This was an old buck in decline, his entire face was as white as snow, I've never seen a deer with his entire face whited out like that.

Anyway, I was wishing I had carried my bow (which was in the truck) out with me.  I watched him for a while, could have shot him at any point, but I let him work out in front of me and when he was about 25 yards out quartering away I leveled off and sighted in on his boiler works and squeezed the trigger...

My primer snapped and then something akin to a cross between a 4th of July sparkler and a roman candle lurched out of my barrel.  The sabot couldn't have hit the ground more than 15 feet from the base of my tree!  I looked for it when I got down.  I can laugh about it now (would love to have a video of it) but in the moment I was pretty pissed.

I pulled the breech plug while I was sitting there just to make sure everything cleared the barrel and the deer just trotted off confused.  Went back to the house and tried another load of the pellets and sure enough it was all crap.

This is a synopsis of my season...

Don't give up, AE.  I have a feeling that your run of luck this season is about to turn around.

I've seen 6 spikes this year. I'd love to have your situation happen. This is the first year in who knows when I haven't seen a shooter buck.....much less one that was legal.

Just got back from the lease in texas, killed 3 does (dont have pics of any of them right now, unimpressive) a spike elk (got loose off a high fence that borders the ranch, a black buck and a 8 point with the bow.  Can post back of license for proof on the 3 does, working on uploading buck pics now.

Coyote that I got this weekend.



We've got the luckiest coyote in the world.

Opening bow weekend he walks out but so does a buck so I can't take him out. 

Opening MG, one of my cousins is sitting in a box stand, same coyote walks out, he gets him in the scope but right beore he pulls the trigger the window on the box stand comes unlatched and falls in front of the scope.  Coyote runs away.

Two weeks after that I see the coyote out the back window and a different cousin grabbed my 300 and tried to shoot him at about 250 yards.  Coyote was trotting and my cousin missed.

Last week a friend was bow hunting and tried to shoot him at 40 yards, arrow went right under him.

Stupid thing can't be killed.

I have a question and I am not trying to be judgmental. Why would you want to have the broken points fixed. I can see it if they got broke after you shot him by running into a tree or what not. If you are having him mounted, don't you want him to look like he did when you harvested him? Again, I am not trying to tell you what you should do or not. Just curious as to why guys do this. Nice kills by the way.

I agree with this, I mean it might look better when you get it fixed up but you didn't kill it that way.  My buddy killed a deer a few years back that would of been an absolute giant but it was broke off past his G2 on one side so it wasn't.  He got it mounted and got a side from another big deer to put on it, looks great and is a trophy buck, but thats not what he killed.
