The Devil’s Gun strikes! Congratulations! Have fun at the wedding!😂

I think after this fiasco I’m gonna send this Muzzeloader to hell where it belongs. 🤣


Thanks, I’ll start my celebratory drinking tomorrow after I get home and get the meat taken care of tonight. Maybe I’ll be in rare enough form my wife will just leave me home. 🤣

Good plan, I’ll look forward to reading your story in the divorce thread.

Since you are discarding the muzzleloader in Iowa, I’ll take it.

I honestly don’t know why I have so much trouble with them. I shoot fine at a target, I dunno what falls apart hunting with them. I think it’s a confidence thing. I’ve got 3-4 rifles and my bow that I 100% trust I’ll make a shot with, I don’t feel bad with this muzzleloader, but I’m just not good with it.

Same. I think it's the nature of the beast. Muzzleloaders are the devil.

Somehow I missed this entire thread until today. Sad to see the mustache is gone, but congratulations on filling 2/5ths of the Nebraska slam (side note for @wllm and all others with real math skills, 2/5ths is the Nebraska equivalent of 0.50. Don't @ me bro, I'm just blending in!).

Wait, what’s the 5th? I was hoping there was only 4. 5 Is a dealbreaker. 🤣

After an hour of laying there I grew impatient and decided to crawl sideways to my left to gain a few feet of elevation, hopefully seeing more of him. I crawled about 50 yards close, I could see the back of his head now. 1 more crawl and he spun his head right to me. He wasn’t sure what I was, and he sat up enough I could see his body in the grass so I shot him right there. View attachment 241138
Is that your ramrod or are you just happy to see us??

It’s a replacement one I bought that’s about 2’ too long. I just haven’t cut it down yet. 🤣🤣

I think I lost the other one shaking that muzzleloader in frustration. Could’ve been 1 of several dozen times. 🤣
