Been trying to get my wife her first buck for the past two years. Have had a handful of bucks picked out for her, but they never seem to show at the right time. A few weeks ago we had a 6 pt with no brow tines come out and he was one we were looking for came out late and she couldn't get a shot.
Fast forward to the last day of general season, its 5 am and the alarm goes off she is tired and doesn't really want to go so I said Ok im going though... she thought about it for a sec and then got up... with a less than steller attitude
We made our way to the blind where she quickly fell asleep with her head on my lap. Light began to creep up and I could make out a deer which looked more and more like the one we had seen before by the minute with growing light. Finally I woke her up and said your deer is here you want to get him? She shook her head yes and I put the gun out the window for her. After a few minutes she squeezed off the shot and I watched him collapse right on the spot. Broke both front legs and obliterated the heart. This is her 3rd deer and first buck... and thankfully for me she now had a
on her face and a great mood!
The morning before we were hunting had a buck doe and two yearlings out when they all hauled off for no apparent reason. Shortly after 3 coyotes came out. I grabbed the rifle put the crosshairs on one and shot. They all disappeared and I was pizzed thinking I missed them. When we got down we went and looked and sure enough he was dead right at the shot in grass about 2 foot tall, once he fell he blended in perfectly.
And one of the little man... cant wait till he is old enough to go hunting with daddy!
