I posted this on the deer hunting section as well.
Had a close family friend call me on Friday to join him on opening day. I was like wow opening weekend.. I changed my weekend plans and packed Friday and could not sleep the night before and left early Saturday morning. It was 4 hours away..but I am super excited. I am driving down the road singing and have visions of wet cold weather to hunt, I cannot get there fast enough and get there early afternoon. So I am sitting that evening in the blind and the weather is overcast and cool. Loving it ..the view and experience is enough to make me happy. I cannot believe I am there. 12 hours ago when asked to go I was in the city wondering how everyone else was going to to do the next morning. So there I set, about an hour the feeder goes off and this yearling doe comes out. I wait and thinking I don't care about horns I'm gonna take her....I text my friend and ask what he thinks..he says do what you want. By the time I get approval, she is gone. Panic sets in....lol So I texted him and he says she will be back..and sure enough she was. I line up on her and text him again 'listen for the boom" and I hit her perfectly. She did a 180 afterward and jumped 4 feet in air and it was over.
Cannot wait for the chili. She was a small doe but to me she was a 12 point. I am so blessed for this opportunity.
I have not been able to shoot a deer in over 4 years.
Hope you all get what you are looking for. I found mine.
Here are some pics. No trophys like you guys post here, but sometimes it's about the "chili"
