Yep, it's looking like once again it's going be be a case of passing several deer during bow season waiting for the big one and then dragging the rifle out and filling the freezer. Maybe I can pick up a good doe this weekend before guns come in.

Yeap I burnt up some black powder last weekend rechecking my scope on the muzzle loader.

I really wish they would change the gun season intil after the rut here in michigan, I think it would go along ways in helping some of the 1.5 year olds making it to 2.5 year olds.

But on a good note, now is a exciting time to be in a tree.

We still have the best 5 or 6 days of bowhunting in front of us. Friday Saturday and Sunday I'll be sitting all day if I can make it(my butt anyway). Come next Sunday all heck will break loose. Pumpkin suit army invades town


Welcome to Michigan. The only state with a 25 day gun season for bucks that starts in the peak of the breeding season. And everyone wonders why our bucks cant get any age??

I'm not up to those all day hunts like I use to be in my younger days....

but I have shot acouple of my best bucks in the middle of the day.

Been thinking about trying a middle of the day hunt, go out at 9am and hunt intil I can't sit still.

Thumbs up Bullets in the Banks

I went to the range on Tuesday and rechecked three of my favorites myself!
50cal Encore, 35Marlin, and 300 win mag for Encore. New Bullet this year for the 50 cal 338 power belt, nice group at 100yards. But the bow is going back up next week also!

I use my encore muzzle loader for gun season too. I tried those dang burn power belts one year. Had a fit with them, it seemed the POI change every other day when the temp changed. I ended up using 250 grain hornady's SST with 130 grains of powder with fairly repeatable results out to 200 yards no matter what the temp.

Go back to the range and check it again on a cold day. If you only have close range shooting it's not going to bother you much but if your hunting open fields with long range shooting you might want to double check em.

Thumbs up PowerBelts

Gator,

I have been using those bullets for three years, cold weather or hot dead on from my gun. I can pull a 3inch group at 100yards with the 270 or the 338 grain bullet. Powder, primers, and barrel condition all factor accuracy. No barrel lube, in fact dry out barrel before loading, I use the original Pyrodex pellets, and 209 primers from winchester, Many folks like triple seven in the powder and primers, however in my Encore I found the pressures to high can cause inconsistany. My Encore was built in 2000, it is one of 300 called the Michigan Millium, that barrel has a 1:28 twist. Its important to match the twist to there bullet chart. Sorry you had trouble with them, maybe had I been there that day I could have helped you dial it in. Truth be know 41 years ago at age 14 it what my Grandpa, put in my hands for my first Hunt in Pinkney Michigan. That was a 45cal Hopkin and Allen Underhammer. Ah the good old days with the smell of Black Powder in the Air! God I miss that Old Man!. Good Luck.. Grizz

Lightbulb To armyof1

There recently has been a ton of new imformation coming out that would explain some of those so called FLYERS that we all get from time to time!
Check this site when you have time! It was interesting.

www.prbullet.com/ interesting reading! 209 primer can dislodge saboted bullets!, causing flyers

www.powerbeltbullets.com/

you will have to search the site but you can look up your own rifle find the twist and get a good choise of the right bullets
