  1. It’s your scope. I had the exact thing happen to my Leupold. I missed a few really good deer at the same distance, 50-60 yards. I would go back shoot the gun after missing one and get it back dialed in and the next outing it would be off again. It took me two bad misses to send the scope to Leupold and had them replace the internal components to fix it. Shoots lights out now. My issue was that my scope cap was slightly touching my barrel and I believe as time went on the shock into the scope it messed up IMO. I have since changed to higher rings and I am good. The story you told is my own about 5 years ago now.
  2. I have been using a muzzleloader throughout shotgun for over 20 years now, I have a T/C Encore. In my first few seasons I didn't realize the importance of having everything dry inside the barrel and breech plug meaning I was using oil and solvents to clean and maintain the gun which lead to issues (mainly in my first muzzleloader which was a Remington) on misfires. Since then, I use Dawn soap and warm water and draw it into the barrel after I break the gun down and this cleans out everything in the barrel. I do the same with the breech plug. After I have done this, I run dry patches until I don't see any more residue from them. I have not had any issues since making sure everything is left dry inside the barrel and breech since. One final thing I will do is dry fire a primer outside (just the primer obviously) to burn or dry anything out. T/C has a multitude of tools that help making cleaning the breech plug much easier than when I started, I would assume your manufacturer has the same. Good luck out there come late season.
  3. This guy came through a little after 7:30 AM pushing a small doe. 7 points, 20” spread. Congrats to all who scored during bow and this morning
  4. Better off calling him, he was old school and wasn’t up on checking emails frequently from what I remember
  5. R&R spoon, pretty sure he’s still around if you Google them
  6. Filled my buck tag this morning, congrats to everyone who scored
  7. Happy Halloween, got it done this morning on a mature 7. Good luck to all and congrats to those who have scored.
  8. Helped my brother recover this buck last night
  9. Hunted this morning, I had a small buck come in first light and then just before 8 I saw a mature buck come off the ridge in front of me. I had him at 30 yards with the bow drawn 3 different times but could not get a good shot. He moved into a small field and pushed a group of does into another wood lot. Saw another 2-1/2 7 point push some does around with the occasional doe feeding through the area. Back at it tonight.
  10. Heading down with the family to Myrtle Beach the last week in August. Anyone been fishing down there and have any recommendations on a charter? I'm fine doing an inshore trip. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thank you in advance
  11. It has been a tough bite for me over the last couple weeks even when the water conditions looked good for Browns.
  12. Fished from Ibay down to Hedges and back this morning with 3 hits to show for it in what looked like perfect water...not good.
  13. So I picked up my euro from my opening day buck this week, guy said that it was the oldest deer he has ever done, had it aged at 7-1/2 years plus. In looking at the teeth, they were so ground down and some had hollow pockets from breaking down. Unreal. Most likely the deer was on a downward side of size from his prior years. I have never killed one that old, all my larger deer have been at 3-1/2 years. Thought it was worth sharing. Congrats on all the great deer being taken.
  14. I knew I was going to catch crap from someone about the crocs, lol. Yeah same area Bruce.
