After six years of hunting hard on public land in search of a mature buck with no results, I decided to give myself a break and head to an outfitter for a few days during muzzleloader season. On the third sit of my trip, the evening of October 13th, I saw a nice buck step out into my shooting lane quartered to me at 115 yards. I lined up the old T/C Black Diamond that my father gave me on his shoulder and squeezed the trigger, and he piled up not 30 yards into the woods. I waited so long for this buck, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to harvest such a beautiful animal. Huge shoutout to Backwoods Trophy Outfitters in Ahoskie, NC for making my dream a reality!
First muzzleloader harvest on public land! Taken at 50 yards from the ground.
My hunt of a lifetime at New Zealand Safaris started with this gorgeous typical red stag going down on day two. Hard hunt but unbelievably rewarding!
Big, old fallow buck went down at New Zealand Safaris on the fourth day of my hunt! Such a beautiful animal.
