Muzzleloader mule deer. 85 yards. Best of 11 bucks seen Saturday.

390gr Hornady Great Plains bullet shed weight down to 344gr.

0.54" bullet expanded to 1.015"

Entrance wound.

Yes, entrance wound. Deer was quartering away so I aimed for the far shoulder. Took out three ribs in the near side, centerpunched the liver, clipped one lung, nailed the other. He went about 80-100 yards after being hit, but very slowly, considering he had a sucking chest wound.

Found the bullet on the far side between the shoulder and rib cage after making it all the way to the hide through the shoulder. Must have worked its way back in as I moved the animal.

Biggest issue during the hunt was being woken up by bugeling elk at 1:00am every night. First world problem?

They call me POODLE SMOLT!
