I was in the local sporting gd store in my home town and the owner and I were having a chat about the deer I had shot a few days prior. Not a bad deer scored approx 148 grn. I explained to him I had shot the deer at 10 yards from a ground blind I had put up earlier in the season. He then takes me to the back room and there is a ground blind half burnt. He then explains to me a ticked off customer had dropped it off demanding his money back. It seems this mental midget decided to shoot his muzzle loader thru the mesh window. OOOpppsss well the black powder residue smoke and fire hit the mesh window and voila we had a situation. A ground blind fire situation and to make matters worse the guy missed the deer. So be very very careful when shooting your muzzle loader thru a mesh window.

Yep that is funny. I thought you were going to say he got his heater to close to the mesh. I usually walk very slowly during Muzzleloader vs my stand during rifle. We have good luck during both seasons.

No booze to my understanding. I thought it was funny to as did the owner but the customer was a bit peeved.

I want to know if the customer got a refund or a request to please exit the gene pool before reproducing.

LOL Koda. My sentiments exactly. What a Moron.

If I was the moron that did this I would be embarrassed to tell anyone let alone demand your money back. Takes all kinds...

My problem with the muzzleloader is that I don't see any deer when I'm hunting with it. I hear them in the snowladen brush, find lots of tracks, but even from the stand I have yet to see a deer in 16 half-days of black powder hunting.
