Mike, I have attached a picture of an eight pointer that I took on December 20th in Amherst County, Virginia with my .50 cal Knight muzzleloader. He stepped out of a thicket to feed in some red oaks right around 12:15. Just wanted to show that there still are some big ones out there late season! Best regards, Brad Carner

Love this VA buck and love Brad’s message. December and January hunting is tough, man, no matter where you hunt. Stick with it and hunt long and hard like Brad did if your season is still on. Brad shot his buck at 12:15, you would not have anticipated that in December, but ya never know.
