I went on a few hunting trips as a kid, shot a sheep, birds, and rabbits but never had my sights on a deer. I finnaly got one, the ranch I hunt on is part of a wildlife management program, they said to only shoot spikes and mature does. This guy walked right in front of my blind, like 30 feet max. He just stopped and stared at the blind when he crossed in front of it, I didn't even have my rifle up when I saw him. I guess it was meant to be. Ill be processing him today, he's waiting in quarters in the ice chest. Hope everyone's thanksgiving hunt is as good as mine.
