I had 3 bucks and 6 does in the field tonight and the one buck was a dandy. I put the sight just a wisker high and it blew smoke. I could see him go in a hunch with his tail between his legs, and go back in the woods. My boy and I walked up to the woods and the does went one way and the buck the other. I backed out and I'm going to look in the morning to see what I can find. I didn't want to push him out of the woods..

Killing a tree --classic!

A long time ago - in what I consider a different life (teen age years), I managed to kill a tree.

A very cold (teens) day. The weapon was a 58 Cal Zoura (sp). 220 grs of soft plumbers lead. Saw the deer and fired as it took off. I found a ten inch birch tree hit about deer chest level. The tree was split from that point up just as neatly as wood split with an ax.

You just need to laugh and go on. But, that "kill" has stayed with me all these years. The anticipation of the shot results waiting for the smoke to clear... only to find the tree in that state. Priceless!
