Just got back from AZ yesterday. I drew a late muzzy tag and had a great hunt. I have hunted AZ the last two years drawing with zero points.. which is hard to do (always insert that when telling the wife). I went down 4 days early to scout the unit ive never stepped foot in... hell never shot a muzzleloader before i applied for the tag. But i love new opportunities! And am now in love with flinging lead from the smoke pole. I glassed alot of bulls the first few days.. 38 to be exact. With a handful picked out hoping to connect with on opening morning. Opener was crazy with a storm brewing, heavy rain then snow. Not seeing a good bull, my fingers were crossed for the next day knowing the elk would be looking to feed with a fresh blanket of snow. At sun up, i snuck from 400 to 171 yrds and let her rip.. this is my best bull to date.

Nice elk,
What kind of muzzleloader is that? I don't see a ramrod.

Outstanding, thanks for sharing!


Im shooting CVA’s .45 cal Paramount. It has a collapsable ram rod due to the internal chassis.. thing shoots sub MOA out to 450 yrds. Kind of crazy!

**With a dirty barrel
:oops:

Now I need to get me a muzzleloader!

This was checking zero after the flight.
Notice the first shot with a sparkling clean barrel.. then a 2 shot group @ 300.
