|I had been going through a
dry spell for a while with not much success, in fact, haven't been
hunting all that much this year, because the only place I had to hunt
was my farm and deer sigh has been very scarce. But my
neighbor/mechanic had been telling about seeing this 8 point crossing
my field about 300 yards east of my house. I was a bit skeptical
about getting a shot at him, but decided to set up this afternoon and
watch my field, and as luck would have it, I wasn't there 15 minutes
when I spot two does running across my field, about 150 yards out, and
sure enough here he came chasing them.
He turned and started towards me, I think he spotted me, but too
late, I caught him in the chest on an angling shot, but he showed no
signs of a hit and turned broadside and started trotting off, I
caught him again in the lungs and he took low and fast, but he only
made it about 40 or 50 yards and down he went.
