Firearm and Gun Forums Firearm and Gun Forums Hunting I have been hunting in Michigan for 5 years now. Well, yesterday 12/14 @ 7:55am, it all came together and I harvested my first buck. I am so thrilled to be able to share this with everyone. 50 yard shot, open sights on my Traditions muzzleloader. He ran 70 yards before crashing in the creek.

    Of course he ran right into the creek. Why don’t they run towards your truck…?

    Yeah it seems if there is water around a freshly wounded deer will find it.

    My grandfather in his later years once shot a doe. He found her laying in a dug with just her nose sticking out of the water to breathe. It bothered him. He hung up his hunting gloves after that.

    Congratulations on a wonderful buck buddy!!

    Deer seem to run down hill and to water. Last year my buck ran to a brook and took a ride down a 15ā€™ waterfall. A wet 3 hour drag back to my truck. Nice Harvest man!

    He looks bigger than my first Michigan buck. What did he dress out at? 175?
