I was in the local sporting gd store in my home town and the owner and I were having a chat about the deer I had shot a few days prior. Not a bad deer scored approx 148 grn. I explained to him I had shot the deer at 10 yards from a ground blind I had put up earlier in the season. He then takes me to the back room and there is a ground blind half burnt. He then explains to me a ticked off customer had dropped it off demanding his money back. It seems this mental midget decided to shoot his muzzle loader thru the mesh window. OOOpppsss well the black powder residue smoke and fire hit the mesh window and voila we had a situation. A ground blind fire situation and to make matters worse the guy missed the deer. So be very very careful when shooting your muzzle loader thru a mesh window.
There comes a time when the blind man says don't ya see..
Yep that is funny. I thought you were going to say he got his heater to close to the mesh. I usually walk very slowly during Muzzleloader vs my stand during rifle. We have good luck during both seasons.
My problem with the muzzleloader is that I don't see any deer when I'm hunting with it. I hear them in the snowladen brush, find lots of tracks, but even from the stand I have yet to see a deer in 16 half-days of black powder hunting.
