Picture of the Day: Will Herald's Muzzleloader Buck

Willbuck_2 Here is 8-year-old Will Herald posing with this nice buck he shot with a muzzleloader just a couple days ago. Father Tim Herald gave this account:

_He took this 9-pointer at about 50 yards. We filmed his hunt and since the deer came in over an hour before dark, we got a great video hunt. He is on top of the world, and I was pretty excited for the little guy myself. _

I had to know about the gear he used (of course). The rifle is a .50-caliber T/C Endeavor that was loaded with 250-gr. shockwave bullets over a full charge of 777 powder.

“It knocks him for a loop,” Tim said. “But he doesn’t care.”

Looks to me like Will is following in dad's footsteps.

Good job, Will!
