Swing and a Miss
Headed into one of my blinds a bit early this evening so I could stalk my way to it. About 50 yards from it a lone doe was feeding. It's thick in there so I had to wait for a shot opportunity. Waiting for her to clear 3 small trees to have a nice broadside shot she beds down in a little divot. I snuck within 30 yards hoping I could see her body to get a shot. Couldn't. I waited for an hour she didn't budge. I gave her some ba's to try to get her up. She wasnt having it. Whistled, nope! Said hey a few times, nope! My arms felt like it was gonna fall off from holding up my gun against the tree so I put it down to hip level to give my arms a break. Within 10 seconds she jumps up and has me pegged looking right at me. Im froze. She slightly turns and the white flag goes up and I pulled up the gun and put the sights on her as quick as I could. As soon as I pulled the trigger I knew it was a miss. Deer1 Me0. Still followed her tracks for a couple hundred yards. No blood. Clean miss, which I'm thankful for.
