Utah Muzzleloader Deer

I drew a decent Utah muzzleloader tag this year. I carried a Thompson Center .50 cal that I bought specifically for the trip because the tag took me 8 years to draw. Idaho does not allow a closed ignition system or 209 primers. Utah does. I got the rifle shooting pretty well and was glad i made the purchase. It was a torrential downpour for 85% of the hunt and somehow my powder stayed dry and the gun went “boom” when I needed it to. I looked at over 150 deer and at least 15 4x4s before taking this deer. General season in Idaho is not quite like that…at least for me.
