i just got back from hunting today i was stalking for all of 45 mins when i spotted movement so i picked up the binnoculars about 150 yrds out i saw a doe so i worked my way closer till i was about 75 yards when she finally presented a shot ,her head and neck .I put the cross hairs on her neck and squeezed the trigger on my marlin 30/30.boom.next thing i see 3 then 4 deer running.I didnt see any of them before. I raised the rifle again to take a second shot but nothing stopped running.I figured i'd go to the spot and look for blood.Didnt find no blood just a dead deer .the bullet severed her spinal cord in the neck she died on the way to the ground.didnt run 1'.Easy tracking job.I took one pic with the cell phone.I got to go hang her now i'll take some more pics
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
