Hello again all, well this past weekend was the 2nd (and last) weekend in Missouri for rifle season. Got me another doe saturday morning. Funny story, I saw her behind a tree at about 100 yds away, and took a shot when she came out, well the shot felt good, but then I saw a doe running away about 10 yds from where I shot this doe, then this "new" doe started running right at me till she got about 40 yds away then she bolted to my right and I took another shot, missed. Then the doe ran away from me but stopped before jumping into the woods- i took another shot, missed. BOY WAS I bummed out. I was kicking myself for missing the same doe 3 times. I couldn't believe it. Well from where I was sitting I was gonig to leave by backing out, but I decided to do some stalking in the woods (in front of me), so I got up and was to the woods line, and right before I was going to cross the fence, I looked down and there was blood on the ground. So then I started wondering, what the heck?!?! So then I look on the other side of the fence (the woods side) and there she lay. There had been 2 does, and I only saw ONE! That put a big smile on my face! Strange how deer can play tricks on a hunter's mind! I'm just glad I decided to go walk-n-stalk because if I hadn't the coyotes would've been eating good for a couple days..
This makes 4 deer on the season for me... 2 does, 1 10-pt buck, and 1 button buck (don't ask). Dehydrating some jerky as I type! MMMMMM!!! Donated 1 doe and the buck b/c I don't need that much meat. Figured I'd give it to some needy families.
buckfever--- I know what you mean by warm! Here in Missouri, saturday was in the upper 50's and sunday was in the upper 60's and I think it even hit 70. Today (monday) it's at least 70 outside right now. BUT, get this, thursday (thanksgiving day) which just do happens to be 2 days after the main rifle season ends, it's supposed to be a high of 35 and low in the upper teens! Missouri has a saying that some of you guys and gals may never have heard of "IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE WEATHER TODAY, JUST WAIT TILL TOMORROW!" Because it could be 75 and sunny one day and 30 and snowing the next,, no lie, that happened last spring..
