Last November (2011) I put in a lot of time looking for a decent buck, most of it without spotting any horns at all. An end of the season muzzleloader hunt for either mule deer or whitetails, took me into the Missouri Breaks country of central Montana. The first three days, I concentrated on mule deer, and spotted several true "Monster Bucks", but could not manage to get within range.
On Thanksgiving morning, I switched to river bottom whitetails in order to put some meat in the freezer - and took this decent 5x5 with one well-placed shot at about 225 yards. The TB-ML scope helped put that shot exactly where it needed to go! To read an article on the hunt, go to - http://www.namlhunt.com/mlhunt.html
