Only bought one doe tag this past year, Curly. Figured you might change yer mind, want one and there'd be an extry 3A tag left just for you?
Nope, didn't shoot a doe this time around. Had 'em all around me the first few days. One even bedded down less than 40 yards below me on opening day. Probably knew it was safe until Saturday? Once they became legal targets, never had one within 150 yards the rest of the time at camp.
Could've thumped one of 'em with the 25-06 or 8x57, sooner use the Lyman-sighted 30-30?
Wasn't a problem before they put 3A into buck only for five days. That's how I killed some earlier in the season with an old relic or two, back then. Even killed a baldy on opening day some years ago, with a M92 made in 1903. So many does wandering around near the cabin, figured might's well shoot one while they were so handy and concentrate on bucks the rest of the season?
Got another season or two left in me, Lord willing? Ain't done yet. After the first 25-30 does, the shine kinda goes down a bit as we get older.
