Short range muzzleloader hunt

Started this years muzzle deer season on Sat. Drove down to a hay field when light enough to see about 500 yards. This field has a heavy tree row on the north side so I parked north of the trees and sat in the trees looking south. Than I started counting deer. Over 40 on just under a 1/4 secton field. Good wind out of the west so a long shot was not to happen. Shouldn't be a problem with this many deer. Didn't take long for one to come into range and stop to eat at 83 yards. Hit her with a 300g Hornady SST bullet. She stumbled, took about 10 steps and fell. Bullet just touched the shoulder on the way in, turned the lungs into jelly, and exited leaving a 3 inch hole. Short day but enjoyed it and deer is in the cooler. See if I can get a long range shot in rifle season.
