I've got two weeks off beginning 12/19 so hoping to use the muzzle loader on some does, and take my bow along as I've still got unfilled archery anydeer tags.
Rain was bad this year - we were fortunate enough to shoot deer by Sunday afternoon, then spent the next three days watching it rain. Kept wishing it would get colder and turn to snow - might have caused us to get out and hunt some does as we had brought our muzzle loaders then as well.
