Texas Double-Drop Tine Buck!

Just got back from the Texas panhandle, first double drop tine deer I've killed. I had originally set this hunt up for my son, who bailed on me, so I took his place.

Free-range (not high fence). Beautiful country, weather was cold in the morning, and warmed up into the 50s most afternoons. Hunted over wheat fields and mesquite thickets for the most part.

Shot this deer at a corn feeder, on a Sunday (both PA non-no's, LOL). I clipped the tripod leg on the feeder (145 yard shot), thought I had missed at first, since the buck took off full charge, tail up. When I got to the scene of the crime, I realized he was hit good. One of the guys in camp had a track dog, which made life a little less difficult. Found 2 entrance holes when the deer was recovered and no exit hole, either the bullet fragmented or I hit him with a piece of tripod shrapnel. I'd rather be lucky than good.






Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook
