Had a nice hunt with my daughter. She took a good buck on her late season tag.

Had a doctor's appointment this AM so I traveled north first and shot two deer. 30-06, 150 grain. Dropped em cold. small doe and a button buck. the doe went down first and then the buck when he poked his head back around the corner to see why his friend wasn't moving any more. A little high on the shots so it took out the tops of the shoulders and lungs and blew out the spine as well. They never felt a thing. Lost a little of the backstraps, but it's a good tradeoff for absolutely zero suffering.

Numbers 20 &21 for the season...

They definitely pile up quick with a shot placed there DT. Nice going.

My girl is a freshman this year. She's a tough little squirt. Don't let the horns on the machine fool you. Take a look at the hair. She was a tired, but happy, little lady when I got her home that night smile

I'll tell a pretty funny little story on my girl from her first year of deer hunting.

School, of course, is already in full swing by the time deer season comes around, so a few hours of hunting in the evening is sometimes all the kids can get until the weekend. So one day after school I picked the girl up and headed for the hills. I told her we didn't have much time to hunt, so she might want to ask God for a little help.

Well, we drive to where we're going to go on by foot, gather what we need and head up the hill into a nice basin where we slip in and start glassing. Pretty quick we catch some movement and see a fat forked horn buck moving out of there at a high rate of speed.

Now we had slipped in nice and easy, had the wind in our favor, and this buck broke out four to five hundred yards below us. He held up twice and stared back into the sage brush he had been bedded in. I don't know if there was a coyote in there, or maybe a badger or some such critter, but we didn't blow that buck out of there, something else did as his body language plainly told.

So about the time it was clear we were getting no shot at this deer, I hear my girl a-frettin' and a-mumbling beside me. I asked her, Sis, what in the world is the matter. She says, Well, I really messed up on that one. I told her, No, honey, we didn't jump him out of here, there was something else in there he didn't like, and that's what made him move.

She replied, That's not what I mean. I messed up by asking God to please let me see a deer, and He did, but I didn't ask Him to let me shoot it! grin grin
