This is a proud young friend I've been mentoring and his first muzzleloader buck. Nice young Sitka blacktail, though it's bigger than it looks.  Bud is 6'8" and pushing 300, which tends to shrink any buck!  Very Happy

He hunted hard for 6 days, getting spoofed by all bucks and passing up does. Finally saw this one at over 200 yards, stalked to about 100, then made a quick doe call when the buck heard him yet couldn't quite see him.  Bud shot him at less than 50 yards "in self-defense" as it charged right in on him.  Gun was the 54 cal TC New Englander I gave him and 80 grains of 3f under a PRB.

Cool Hand Luke for the shot, but was shaking so bad afterward that he couldn't hold the knife! lol!

Youngster didn't have much choice.  Dad is 6'10" and mom is 6'6"!!!

At 6'4" it's not often I feel like a shrimp, but I'm always looking up to them. Very Happy

We sold our last home with 8' tall doors to a family like that, all were all close to the 7 foot with one son being 6'11. He's the star player for BYU's volleyball team. Most of our old neighbors are 6' plus.

When at Cabelas in the evening standing in the library looking out onto the main floor you would see many beautiful gals and when they got close most were 6' plus, like you were in a dream with Amazon Women (that would make your day)..... Very Happy   Smile   Laughing   sunny

They could put a bear costume on and scare some of those brownies away ... except they might get shot for trophy bears. Dunno

Congrats to Bud on his 1st muzzie kill.  :rtup
