10/24

Took the savage ml ll for a trip to state game land and look at what we found. Two does come down the hollow 1 didn’t make it out. Worst part couldn’t remember if powder tube was had powder or not so dump the load before loading bullet. End up with just the load in the gun get down tracker her have shot her again. Now out of loads for weapon dress the deer sit down on alogwhat ambles by nice medium bear.

Oh no I was just saying what it is. I hunt in area where some spots we have high expectations and then since one thing none of my brother have killed a true pa mountain buck we have different goals. But any deer killed by a hunter is happy then it’s a trophy and I will not say anything against it iam truely happy for the hunter

My son and I went to a friend's property in 1A last night He opted to sit in a ground blind in the old pasture field and I set up about a 100 yards behind him in the woods in a ladder stand. After about 30 minutes, I spied a deer to my right feeding on acorns. I was starting to shift the gun when it picked up its head and I saw antlers. Turned out to be a little 3 pt. About a minute later, another deer appeared 50 or so yards below me. I could see it was a fawn and as I was raising my binocs, momma came into view. I got on her and at the shot, she didn't seem to react like I hit her at all. She bounded out of sight, head and tail up. I was sitting there wondering how I missed her. I decided to wait a few minutes before getting down. The fawn returned to where she had been then ran off the same direction the doe took. After a couple minutes, the buck reappeared and walked over to where I had shot at the doe. He put his nose to the ground and was sniffing around like a dog. I climbed down and when I got to where she was standing, I found some hair and a little bit of blood. The hair looked white and the blood looked almost like a strip of fat. I'm thinking I hit her low in the brisket. I began walking the direction she went and found 2 more little pieces of fatty blood. As I was poking around with my nose to the ground I was texting my son telling him I thought I had shot low and just grazed her. I picked my head up and looked about 10 yds to the side of me and there she lay. I had drilled her right through the rib cage and through both lungs. She had only run about 15 yards from where I shot her. Pretty good sized doe and she had white feet to boot. My son saw 7 different bucks from that ground blind. The only doe he saw was being chased by a huge 8 pt and he couldn't get a shot at her. He was losing his mind.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
