Md. muzzleloader hunt
« on: October 22, 2018, 11:08:53 AM »
I finally got out to ML hunt Sat evening. had a great hunt no shots but I saw 5 bucks and 2 doe. I saw a small spike and a basket 6 pt, 1 nice 8 pt, 1 big  8pt and a giant 8 or 10 pt that didn't hang around very long. All of the deer I saw were too far to take a shot  :-[ but I had a great time. My buddy did whack a nice fat doe right at dark for sausage. I  is good to know that all these bucks are on the farm cause we have none of them on camera. Guess I'll be bow hunting the first week of Nov for sure.

I am in Region B BTW. There are some Sundays included in the dates I provided.  Not too confusing  --099-780

What ML were yiu using?

I have a scope mounted CVA camo Optima. Took it to the range a few times but never hunted with it.

I shoukd dust it off, maybe after the season is over as I have no place in commie NJ to gun hunt

Yari- yes you do need a degree it gets a little confusing.

Flint I am using  a Remington Genisis 50 cal. loaded with 2 50 gr 777 pellets and a 300 gr Barnes Expander shots really well. i hear the CVC Optima is an accurate rifle you should knock the dust off it for sure.

My first ML was a Remington700ML. It matched in style of my Remington 700SS 30.06 but it was the 1st ML Rem tried. I think I thew the RemML in the garbage. They upgraded since then but CVA stormed the market so I went with it.

Once the season is over I will take it to the range and give it a good go.

Flint - My first in-line ML was a Remington 700ML that use the #11 Musket Cap (with a low 3 digit serial number)....My very first ML was a Dixie Hawkins 45 caliber that was put together from a kit back in the early 70's...shot pretty good groups, nothing like today ML's.....Side Lock with the #11 cap on the side, you took a shower when you cleaned it....boy, it was a pain to clean!!

These days with invention of RS, Select and Pydrodex, Triple 7 and those pellets and now the star pellets in Triple 7.....I do like the Parker Extreme Hunter and (like Bluetoe) the Barnes Expander in either the 275 (Parker) or 300 gns (Barnes) sabot bullet.....those two shoot the best 2 and 3 shot groups.

Do have a 50 caliber T/C Hawkins that I purchase use from a guy back int early 80's it shot light years ahead of the Dixie 45 caliber kit...but do have a Savage ML10 II, a T/C Omega and another Remington 700ML (this one with a 5 digit serial number) and today I shoot a CVA Accura with the Bergara Barrel on it made (or assembled) in Lawrenceville, GA (I use to live in Lawrenceville when I live in Atlanta area right off of GA 20 Hwy), I originally ordered a CVA from Cabela's many years ago and after taking it out of the box, I put it back in the box and shipped it back, what a piece of garbage it was, and then went out an bought the T/C Omega, the Savage.....both shot good and worked on both Remington's ML and changed out the #11 to a 209 Primer, made all the difference in the world....

Then because of Deerhead and Split Toe, went out and bought me a new CVA Accura 2 with the Bergara barrel....put a Bushnell DOA scope on it and never looked back, this thing shoots very good and because I use the Blackhorn 209 with the Winchester 209 Primers, this ML is deadly and is now my number 1 ML and has been for 5 years....
   
Got 4 ML hunts in with the CVA Accura 2 this year (with the T/C Omega as my back-up)  and now it is center-fire rifle season in GA. They have a very short ML season, saw a basket 4 pointer and a few does but they were all to young to take, did have a nice 8 pointer on the Game Trail Camera, but he was already nocturnal.....

Bluetoe, Sounds like it was a great hunt regardless! Good luck on the rest of the season in the other end of our state! My wife and I were away for three days visiting the Amish country in Lancaster, PA. Had a great time and got bac today. Plan on getting back out in the morning to continue the archery season!

I think i went nuts and even put a Leupold ML scope on it.

Even better, I ordered it online from an Orthodox Jewish store based in NYC! The Israelis are our allies and I figured buying from them in NYC in the Libs front yard had a bit of poetic justice. Imagine, a camera store that sell hunting scopes, binos etc right in the liberal hood, Sweet!
