My son and I started the day with dread calm conditions after a storm but didn't hear any gobbling. So, we went back to camp ate and went running and gunning only to be met with high wind. We hunted 3 sets when my wife texted asking if we'd had any luck and I replied "Nope, we're about to head home. That's when this guy gobbled about 300 yards away. He worked about a half moon circle and came right in to 33 yards when I sent 2 1/4oz of copper plated 6's. This was my first muzzleloading shotgun harvest. I'm sold! Thanks for great equipment!
This was Collin's first black powder hunt (Nov 2016) in Bath County VA. He used my Knight Wolverine to drop this nice 6 pointer. He now has his own Wolverine thanks to the great team at Knight and the Outdoor Sportsman's show in PA. Thanks again to Ashley the entire team at the show.

I got this buck in Tennessee during the 2013 Muzzleloader season. My set up was a Knight LK93, With Nikon ProStaff 3-9x40 , shooting Hornady 300 grain SST and #11 cap. He came by at an awkward angle and I had to switch arms to shoot him left handed. Worth the vacation day from work!
Mr. Wolf it was a pleasure and frosting on the occasion, meeting you and your Knight muzzle loader friends!
The Knight rifle I used was a model LK-93 .54 caliber with synthetic black stock, blued black barrel and open sights. I like the ease of carrying this 40.5 inch long rifle weighing in at just over 6 pounds. I shot the bull moose at 70-80 yards with a 348 grain hollow point Power Belt bullet, ignited with 100 grains of Pyrodex powder and a Remington no.11 cap. I purchased it because of the cheap price as a back up muzzle loader and my first in-line. I had an older TC and was still a beginner in the muzzle loader world being a converted archer . My shoulders were starting to affect shooting my bow so I transferred over to muzzle loader hunting. I do enjoy the early November high powered rifle deer seasons here in Colorado with the chance at a trophy buck and longer shooting. I had harvested a couple animals with my TC but since getting the Knight Muzzle loader we have harvested 3 bull elk, 2 antelope and 1 moose.
I have other and more expensive muzzle loaders now but I always come back to this rifle for the muzzle loader season. At 100 yards sighting in this year I had 2 holes less than 2 inches apart at 100 yards, and I am not a target shooter. I am usually happy I hit a paper plate at that distance. I felt comfortable out to 125 yards this year and aiming dead on.

This is my 3rd Wild Turkey with your Knight Muzzleloader. This bird was taken this week in Colorado. I have taken one in Wyoming and Nebraska the last few years. If you would like I can submit a full story about this hunt where my son and I both took Tom's with your Muzzleloader. I will send his photo also. Thanks for a great gun! Steve
Sorry but not the best picture. This is my first bear with my muzzleloader. Was walking to the truck and jumped her. Made a fast shot and followed up for a 2nd shot and missed. Loaded up to finish her but she ran up a tree. I shot her again and had a hell of a time getting her down. Love my bighorn

Archer Reese (11yrs old from Meigs Co. TN) got this 8 Point Buck while hunting Fort Campbell Military Base Youth Hunt on 11/15/2015. The Buck has a 16.75 inch spread and 19.50 inch beams. It field dressed 126lbs. This makes his sixth deer with a LK-93 Knight Muzzleloader. As always thank God for his many blessings and yet another amazing day in the woods.
had a great muzzleloading tune session 2day. Weather was beautiful and just a perfect day 2 shoot. Praying mantice landed on Rusty's gun this morning and must of brought good luck because he shot lights out like usual. Take advantage of these beautiful days and get your muzzleloader zeroed in! This weather wont last forever!!

I was hunting on Blueberry Wildlife Club in Eastern NC. I climbed into my ground blind at about 3:30 pm. It wasn't long before my shooting lane was full of small bucks and does. Shortly before dusk, a right decent 9 point buck came out and gave me a broadside shot at over 100 yards. I settled the crosshairs on the buck's shoulder and squezzed the trigger on my Knight Ultra Lite and down he went. I had killed a doe earlier in the week at 223 yards. I love my Knight!!!
Jason Hathaway from Washington took this magnificent bull on his "Special Permit" hunt with the trust of his .52 caliber LRH and a 375gr Barnes. Jason said "it literally dropped the bull in his tracks, this combination is some real bad medicine for elk." Thanks Knight Rifles for such a monster killer!
This is my son with our 2x3 that we were able to take with a shot from my Knight Disc using a 300 grain Hornady SST. We were hunting in beautiful Southern Utah. I think this was the 5th or 6th buck we saw, my son was very excited that I finally took a shot at one. Great memories for me and my son.
Pro Staffer JRWolf: Just got home from month of guiding elk hunters in Colorado and decided to get out 1 of my smokepoles. 1st shot with clean barrel hit low and then shot 3 more rounds at 100yds. Final tune job coming soon. Knight LRH with 105gr Blackhorn 209- winchester 209 primer- and Barnes 250 gr bullet.
Prois Hunting employee Katherine Grand with her second bull and first animal taken with a muzzleloader. “I could not pass on this beautiful bull standing broadside at 50 yards after an epic stalk. My goals this year were to shoot a bigger bull than my first, take a good kill shot with my Knight Ultra-Light .50 Cal Muzzleloader, push myself harder and go farther than I had before. I am happy to say I accomplished these goals and noticed a huge difference physically after all the training and running I've been doing. I am so grateful for the meat in the freezer that will feed our family all year, and the incredible hunt I shared with my husband. Prois was there!!
Adi was watching a smaller six point when this guy walked in to control the area. Harvested him with her Dad's 1997 50m caliber Wolverine using 100 grains of loose pyrodex behind a 245 grain Ultra Slam Series Spitzer. That gun has worked great with the #11 percussion cap and is still in use today. A tried and true design and it has never failed even in hours of driving rain.
"Shot my first branch antler bull this year with my .50 cal Knight Bighorn and Bloodline 300 gr. bullets. Bull was dead on his feet and only went 20 yds. The Bloodline bullets did the job just as advertised. This was also my first muzzleloader kill. Thanks Knight!"

Larry Allen owner of Hubbard Creek Outfitters in Colorado came out to enjoy a Whitetail hunt with Rusty in Illinois. It was terrible cold and lots of snow. Larry is a very good shooter with his Knight Disc Extreme. I was in straw bale blind with Larry and ranged this buck 4 times before Larry shot him. The range was 278yds, yes 278yds. One shot dead center and game over!
After hunting for several years trying to take a good buck, it finally happened last weekend.
This deer was a result of putting a lot of time and effort in during the off season. The area
this deer was in is very thick. It was nearly impossible to get thru. After trail cutting and
opening up a nice shooting lane, as luck would have it, the Oaks hit in this area. This deer was
on my trail cam the morning my son and I put the treestand up. All the hard work paid off on
the opening day of the Tennessee Muzzleloader season. At 7:30 am this 10 pointer stepped out
looking eye to eye with a doe across the opening. As he started toward her, I put the crosshair on the
bucks shoulder and took the shot. The Knight .45 Disc Extreme did the rest. A big thanks to Knight
Rifles for making such a great product!

My son took a mature doe on the last day of his muzzleloader season. I'm proud of his tenacity and perseverance and making good decisions when the chips were down. He bleated twice at a group of deer to stop them in mid flight. He then closed the deal with his Knight Wolverine shooting a 250 gr. copper Barnes bullet through the shoulder and both lungs.
"Had to share my WA state Elk 5x5 i took during the muzzleloader season this year! shot it with my .50 cal Carbon Knight Bighorn that I purchased in August, you guys are the best in rifles I cant thank you enough. The gun performed flawlessly and i took him at 50 yards with one shot, keep up the good work Knight Rifles will forever remain in my gun collection, also is the photo of the bullet and ballistics tip i found in the elk, man do these rifles pack a punch"

"I connected with this 8x7 elk on the last day of Colorado’s muzzleloader season. I had been watching him the whole week with no way to make a move on him, passing up several other great bulls in the process. Finally it happened, and I found myself at 15 yards from him. My new Knight Ultra-Lite did its part in earning me my best bull to date. I love how compact and light the rifle is. Now it isn’t such a chore to pack a muzzleloader through the brush and up and down the mountains chasing deer and elk." Seth
Richard and Rusty had very successful hunt with Hubbard Creek Outfitters from Colorado. Both of these bulls were taken Knight LRH .50 cal. Richard shot his bull at 45yds and Rusty shot his bull at 90yds. Congrats Richard and Rusty, all of the practice shooting this summer paid off!!
