That is a pretty neat little gun, watched some videos. How much of a pain is it with sizing modules and such?

Priming modules are easy.. you do need a press to size the bullets and reprime the modules.. and some sort of powder scale to weigh out your charges

I got one those walking around now. Hit a 115 ish yesterday with cbow. Looked good sounded good but no good. Watched him go lay down so we thought. Let him go for 4 hours. Then of course here comes big rain wet crap. Did manage to find blood where he stopped that was the end. Looked big time no avail. Found my bolt broke in 2 places
Might have bounced off of some brush on the way to him. Those bolts r so fast I can’t c them. I’ll look today for dog tracks. It sucks for the deer not me.

Last sit of the year today. A couple of does at 15 yards was all. Fun gun season grind this year but the only buck I saw was a spike. I was able to hunt nine different public land tracts and was able to find some big buck sign to target during bow season next year. I think my take away from the public land hunts is we probably would be better served to follow how some states have a simplified method of regulation- your license gets you one buck tag and one doe tag (with no DMP units to add to confusion). Also, the number of land owner tags available needs to be reduced. If a farmer needs more deer shot of their land, they can give permission to hunters looking for a place to hunt. 

X2 I hunt my farm and public land simply because I like the big woods an many different bucks on public land. Here in Yates county there is a lot of hunting pressure so in gun season you don't see much anymore even on my land. Seen only 1 buck so far in gun season in many days of hunting. In PA I seen 2 bucks before I got all the way up the tree, one that I shot. See more quality bucks in PA in the years I hunted there. Would love antler restrictions but thats prob not happening so I think 1 buck tag an less doe tags would be the thing. Guess I'll try some walking on new state lands the next days see if I find something I like. Good luck to all!

So we have this big momma doe that has two yearlings, a button buck and a doe. She’s huge, one of the biggest I’ve seen and we have some slobs. I could have killed her a dozen times including tonight but just can’t do it. IMG_1857.JPG

CVA Accura V2 with the nitride finish. Amazing gun with the proper powder and bullet.

When will they leave her?

They won't. Atleast no time soon. It's possible the doe Fawn might get bred in the next couple of weeks and the button buck might wander off occasionally but they will be back at her side soon enough. They will certainly winter with her.

Leave her. She has to teach the others that your field is a safe haven. Best buck bait out there. Shoot her in the ass with a paint ball loaded with doe n’heat.

My season is put on hold. My wife has tested Positive for COVID and she has it bad. Just about every symptom. She was and has been the most cautious and careful about this and it blows our mind how or where she got it. I’m on contact quarantine for 14 days now. I will be released on the 15th. I will hunt muzzleloader for the first time ever this year.

I enjoy reading this thread as it “lets me live” through all of you while I’m stuck inside.

Look forward to all the stories and be safe everyone

I would say shoot her. DEC did a study showing those fawns as being able to survive no problem. Nothing screws a big buck hunt like a mature blowing and teaching other deer where to not be. I rather have two year olds around, they reproduce the same.....

My son Billy went for a walk at one of the leases today. Looks like the big momma doe in our yard will get a pass for the rest of the year!IMG_3935.jpeg
