Canada Muzzleloader Monster

Nov_2_06 I heard about this 200" plus giant shot by a Canadian resident while I was blackpowder hunting up in northern Saskatchewan last week. It is clear and early evidence that this is going to be a banner and scary antler year up North. After a string of mild winters, the mega-sized bucks are wearing bigger headgear than ever. It would not surprise me if several bucks pushing world-record status are shot when the non-resident rifle season opens next Monday.

BTW, check out the scope bite on that guy's forehead; I've had a few of those with scoped muzzleloaders and their funky stock fit and eye relief, ouch!
