Opening day doe bagged

Shot this one at an odd time - 3:45PM

This was my first time hunting this 2A property and my morning hunt was dead. Whenever that happens, I usually change spots and show up pretty early for the afternoon hunt. It paid off.

The landowner drove me up the hill on his tractor and then headed back down. I found a spot in some open hardwoods that gave me a view of the pasture, as well. Just as I got to thinking, "this looks like a really good spot," I see the shadow of a doe about 100 yards out in the woods. I hurry up and sit, leaning against a tree trunk. Within a minute or so, she comes clear at 76 lasered yards. I let loose with a 350 gr. Harvester Saber Tooth bullet and 100 gr. of Blackhorn 209 from my T/C Omega. The bullet entered behind the right shoulder and exited through the left shoulder. The deer went about 60 yards and piled up, not even 5 minutes after the tractor had pulled away. The blood trail was...easy to read.

Not a bad result considering I only had 1 day to hunt for this antlerless muzzleloader season!

Re: Opening day doe bagged

Thanks, guys. It was a fun hunt. I'm really thankful to the folks who let me hunt their land up there; it's an awesome place. Lots of turkey sighted, too, so I'm trying to stay calm and get ready for that season in a few weeks.

Nice!

An archer shoots his targets as far as he can. A bowhunter shoots his target as close as possible.
