I had a great set-up for a big Buck yesterday....I thought. I was in the tree at 5:00am, an hour before daylight, had my Tinks 69 all set up, and figured the rut was close enough to have the bucks chasing Does all day long. I sat there freezing until 10:30 without seeing a deer. I was just about to get down and try the other side of the property when I heard some turkeys calling from up the mountain behind me. Them another called below me about 50 yards away. Suddenly the ones above me started flying down and landing all around me. I usually don't mess up a deer hunt fooling with turkeys but I figured, "What the hay?" I took a bead on one, pulled the trigger and heard a CLICK. Oh no, the cap didn't go off. I cocked the gun again, pulled the trigger again and it went POP. The cap fired but not the charge. D@$# it! I struggled with cold fingers and finally got the old cap off and a new one on the nipple, found a bird, and BOOM! That's when the miracle happened. That turkey I had just shot, suddenly healed up and walked away! I went for my Quick Loads, poured the powder from one of them down the barrel, went for the ram rod and dropped the Quick Load (with the bullet still in it) out of the tree, which scared off a couple more birds. I grabbed another Quick Load, poured the powder out on the ground, and finally got another bullet down the barrel. Somehow, with all this activity, there was still a turkey in a tree down below me. (I think it must have been a blind turkey.) I got him in my sights, took a deep breath, and BOOM! He was dead before he hit the ground. At that point, I was sure glad it was a turkey I was shooting at. I don't think a buck would have waited around to see what that fool in the tree was gonna do next!
