Day 12 Saturday December 12, 2015

Well, I guess I'm allowed back in the house. I finally brought home some meat on the last day of rifle deer season.

The best eating kind also, young and tender.



Taken at 100 yards with it connecting between the eye and the ear. No meat wasted. Practice from the bench really paid off.

The horizon is your starting point.

Called it until late season around 1:30. Not a bad rifle season, I shot a doe and my son got a 5 point. First time I've ever stopped hunting until the very end if I had a tag left. It somehow just feels wrong. Oh well, I have a very long honey do list that is getting started.

Re: Day 12 Saturday December 12, 2015

Went out today with hopes I'd fill my buck tag, in my stand well before day light. Didn't see any deer till about 9:45 and couldn't get a shot at any of them... seen a small 4 point around 10:30. Around 12:30 I could here a deer running in my direction, it was a nice doe but had another behind her. The doe came with in 30 yrds of my stand and moving pretty quick, the second one finally showed itself but it was moving pretty quick too.. at that time I seen horns and knew he was a good buck.. they never stopped moving and i didn't think he was gonna give me a shot... well the doe finally slowed down and came through a big opening, the buck slowed alittle and came through the same opening.. I calmed my nerves and took a deep breath and as he stepped out I let the .270 sound off. He dropped in his tracks..!
I'm super pumped to have success on the last day.
I have more pics but this is right as I walked up to him. Don't worry fellas he was tagged..!
