My complete 2011 season

Well I have been so busy I haven't been able to make any posts for the deer I got. I ended up tagging out taking a doe, button buck, and a buck. My first deer of the year was a yearling button buck I took on October 8 at about 8:30 am. I was sitting in my stand when I saw 11 deer come out at about 350 yards. They started walking around coming closer slowly getting more towards straight in front of me. 10 of them were antlerless and 1 was a big fork horn. Well 6 of the deer went back across the road and into a pine thicket. I decided to use my grunt call and the buck started to swing his head around and I grunted again. The buck started running towards me and went into a thicket in front of me at about 150 yards. Then I caught sight of 5 antlerless deer coming towards me at about 50 yards. They get to ten yards when the yearling button buck gave me a clear broadside shot.



On Saturday October 22 I shot a big mature doe durring Jr. Doe at 9:10 am. About a 200 yard shot with my winchester model 70 featherweight in .270. Deer dropped right in its tracks.







December 3, at 7:20 am I shot a 3 point buck. It was the third buck I had seen in 4 days of hunting during rifle season. It was the first buck I could get a reasonable good shot at. Shot the buck at about 120 yards with my winchester model 70 featherweight in .270. This is my second buck I have ever taken and my sixth deer I have taken overall.





It was a great season for me and I know that my grandfather who passed away this may was watching over me and put those deer in front of me as well as my uncle who died way to young on August 24, 2010. I know I made them both proud. After shooting the buck I felt tears run down my face.
