So after many years of trials and tribulations and having done every mistake known to flintlock hunters, I finally bagged this nice doe at 8:45 Saturday morning in 5C. 2 does were in this very thick cover so I got my TC Firestorm on the shooting stick in the event they presented a shot and the lead doe starts coming out of the cover and immediately picks me out somehow and she looks like she is ready to spook and I only had her upper chest, neck and head so I let it fly, she flips over head over heals in her tracks. I was very excited to say the least. She is a really large doe the shot was right through her neck, I guess I held steady this time!
