    I'm back on Kentucky for a few days of muzzleloader hunting.

    This is a different farmer's place than the one I usually hunt.

    I had planned to hunt a wooded north edge of s green field but the electric fence is hot so I can't get to a tree.

    I opted to walk to the south edge and finally found s red oak that lets me climb about 12 feet.

    I was about six feet off the ground, looked over my shoulder and there were three does out in the field already. One watched me as I slowly continued setting up and now sitting watching them plus two more that joined them.

    They're about 150 yards out.

    I'm going to wait until tomorrow morning before I shoot a doe so they're safe tonight.

    You do realize who you quoted?
    He’ll kill 2, maybe 3 of them

    Well, I saw a "few" deer this afternoon sitting with my TC Encore.

    I couldn't get them all into one pic but I got the majority. At one point I had about 15 within easy muzzleloader range but I was hoping to see a buck.

    A group of about 8 led by a gigantic matriarch worked their way straight to me, walked into the woods almost right under me and bedded down.

    I ended up having to spook them off.

    See? I do have some self control.

    No tricks required. I came to shoot does. I just didn't want to mess up the area tracking and recovering does in the dark the first sit.

    If they show up tomorrow morning or tomorrow afternoon I'll be stress-testing my .50 cal speed loaders. :tu:

    Saw 11 does, but too far off to shoot. I can't hunt tomorrow....hopefully Saturday morning real quick.

    All set up in the same tree I was in yesterday.

    I'm not sure what to expect here this morning. Yesterday afternoon was my first sit here.

    If I see something. I have no idea what the patterns are here. I walked in blind yesterday and was surprised by the doe numbers. Just as surprised as I am to not have seen the first deer in the field yet this morning.

    Something tells me it's just a matter of time.

    If they don't show this morning I'll shoot this afternoon.

    Six does 150 yards out.

    No, now it's eight. I'll wait until they're closer. No need in taking a long shot.
