This buck kicked my butt from the time I pulled the trigger till I put him in the freezer.
Had to take my muzzleloader because I think the scope on my rifle has gotten squirrelly.
Had to get up for work at 3:45 and got the chance to leave at 1 so I took off and went hunting. Just about nodded off in my box when he came out about4:45. Had to shake the cobwebs out of my head so I could make sure it was a buck. Blammo! I was pretty sure I made a good shot, but when I went to look, no blood or hair. Uh-oh. Went in the direction he ran off but it was steep downhill and several large trees that were blown over earlier this spring. I had to trod through some thick arse blackberry briars, climb over the trees all the while it’s starting to get dark. Finally found him curled up in a root hole left by tree that got blown over. It took another 30 minutes to drag it a few inches at a time up the hill. Totally wore out, I had to load it up in the back of the truck, which was another ordeal for n itself. I had the worlds dullest knife to skin it with. Trying to peel the hide was like trying to strip linoleum. By the time I got it quartered and put up it was nearly 9. I was one whooped pup, and still had to get up at 3:45 again.
Totally worth it!

Good buck.

I saw a trick on You Tube for loading deer in a truck by yourself. There is a 70+ year old man that hunts alone much of the time. He carries a sheet of plywood in the bed and then when it come time to load angle it off the tailgate with a rope on the deers head. Standing in the bed pull the deer up. I have been using half a sheet a couple years now and it makes loading deer real easy. I loaded a 178 lb buck by myself last year no problem.
