Hey y'all, hope everyone is doing well and having a great season. I've been fortunate enough to get a nice axis doe and today got a big bodied 8 point (who darn near gave me a heart attack, I thought I got a perfect shot but he ran like crazy! As my heart sunk thinking "how the heck did I miss that?!" I saw him start to circle about 30 yards away. He went down and stayed down thank goodness. He had some vigor in him!)

I also got a whitetail doe (hit her with a Barnes triple shock from my new 308 the old man and his dad surprised me with!) and recovered this almost perfectly mushroomed bullet. Thought it was neat.

Yessir, I am feeling very blessed this season especially since I haven't had much time at all to get out and sit. They've been showing up for me- can't resist that alfalfa!

The cooler is still in amazing shape and we use it all the time! I am pretty funny about it (I won't let anyone sit a drink on top of it, haha) and folks who come over always compliment it! Thanks again, man. It's one of my absolute favorite possessions, great craftsmanship and great memories.

Thanks y'all!

My father in law loads the rounds for me and they just wallop whatever they hit.

The only reason I recovered that one was because I had to take a quartering to shot. Came thru the lower neck, and it rode down into a back leg (which it shattered the bone.). Found it just under the skin and thought it was a tumor on her until I felt the shape. It was fun to retrieve it while skinning! Definitely lost some meat off that doe, though eek

I suspected it was a full length kind of shot to pull that off.
