Red Tag Hunting (Doe Harvest 02/03/14)

With most people wrapping up their deer season we are transitioning over into red tag season. Red tag season is a special season between February 1st and September 28th that allows hunters to harvest antler-less deer on participating farms that deal with significant destruction of crops from deer. We were really blessed to get a deer on the night of 02/03/14 about 20 minutes before dark. My buddy Josh had hunting all archery, rifle, and flintlock season without harvesting a deer. At about 5:15 two deer stepped out at roughly 360 yards. When the deer turned broadside Josh sent a 180 grain Hornady superformance from his Browning X-bolt chambered in 300 Win Mag down range and capitalized the opportunity. Anyone else do any red tag hunting?

No fawns it was a button buck which we don't like to harvest but at the distance it's hard to tell and plus Josh had hunted all year without any luck so he was just wanted to put some meat in the freezer
