Default Nice morning

We have finally had some decent weather here for the Tennessee rifle season, now 12 days old. It was 21* with a heavy frost and very still this morning. The woods had also finally dried out yesterday after a lot of rain. I was in my chosen spot an hour before SR and by SR I'd seen 5 does, two of which were less than 20 yards from my spot (ground). About 45 minutes later I saw a buck following the route of some of the does and I thought he might come up really close (he looked like a shooter)

He did not, instead he followed another trail through the thick brush. I had to stand to shoot him and the 1895M did just what it's supposed to do, dropped him in his tracks at about 70 yards. He turned out to be a 7 pnt, not the 8 I figured him for, but a decent buck, none the less. He's #3 for the year so far and 4 1/2 weeks of rifle left in Tennessee to fill my last buck tag.

It was a very nice morning & now I'm tired! They don't seem to drag as easy nor load themselves in the back of the FX4 as well as they used to. Wonder why?
