My daughter and son-in-law are both on leave from the Navy and will be here tonight. Her husband,David, asked if I would teach him how to load and care for a muzzleloader. He may want to buy one too so I'll give him advice on the differant styles and makes. I think a CVA Wolf, package deal with accessories to get started, would be a good choice. They are good little guns and reasonably priced. Soooo, Jason is loaning him an Optima 209 and I'll be teaching David the ropes. Will see how he likes the Optima. Not a whole lot of differances between it and a Wolf. As icing on the cake we are taking David to my brother-in-law's for the last two days of Muzzleloader Season. Due to being ill I wasn't able to hunt much our last trip. Am really looking forward to it and plan on getting a doe for the freezer. I have just the spot to put David where he'll have a pretty good chance to see deer. It would really make my day, and his too, for him to get one. If he does he'll have Sameee make most of it into jerkey. lol It's sooo cool, and a really good feeling, to be able to pass on knowledge and skills. David seems to think I'm a hunting guru so I'll do my best to live up to expectations. Hey, it's nice to be apreciated.
I'll let you all know how it goes. Hopefully I'll have some pics to post.
Can hardly wait till my grand-daughters are old enough to hunt. The oldest, 9 yrs, wants me to take her turkey hunting. That would be sooooo cool! She told me that "Gobble Gobble" means "I Love You" in turkey talk.
