2 for 1 special for a good cause!
Ran into a buddy of mine at Lowes the other day and he told me a mutual acquaintance of ours was in a bad way financially due to being off work because of an injury suffered on his own time. Said he could really use some venison if I could spare any. I said sure. He then asked if I had any SRA tags left and yep I have a few. He said I should come to his place today (about 12 acres)as its loaded with deer and he dosent have the time to hunt em and we can then give the guy a whole deer.
Got there this morning and set up In the ground seat where he told me by about 605. As I had other things to get done today I had already decided I was going to attempt to take the first deer that gave me a shot. Around 7 a small doe came to the intersection of the the 2 ATV trails I was watching. I cocked the hammer on the gun and was about to shoot when I noticed another deer moving down the trail to about 50yds. This one was a much bigger deer so I transfered the sights to that one and fired. Deer jumped and death ran about 30yds down trail and piled up. Got to her and found it was a large doe. Shot hit mid body right behind shoulder. Gutted her out and made drag to my truck to head home to skin and quarter her up. About a mile down the road a deer jumped in front of my truck and I couldnt swerve enough and hit it in the head and neck with my plow mount. Deer died on impact. Got out and saw it was a decent sized shed antlered buck. Loaded this one in the truck too and made the rest of drive home uneventfully! Made the call to PGC SE office and got a permit # for the roadkill. Called my uncle for help and we hung both deer in my garage with each skinning and quartering one. Have them both on ice and will finish butchering and grind them tomorrow. Planning on grinding everything but the loins and backstraps and will probably make some into sausage as I was already planning to make a batch for myself this week. Glad to help a guy out and having 2 give him makes it even better!
