I used to hunt all the time, got my legal limit for many years, now I'm not so pissed at the deer, I might take one every now and then. I didn't re-join the camp this year mainly because of the gas prices. I figured it would take at least a couple hundred extra dollars this season just to go back and forth to the camp, I figured I could put that into my truck to help with the restoration costs. Besides, I hope my stepson will supply us with venison this year, heck, just a couple weeks ago he brought us a mess of bass filets. I doesn't get any better than that.
My daughter called me Sunday, she said Dad, I just killed two deer with one shot! I just about fell out! I used to take her to the camp when she was younger, she's 19 now. This was the first deer she's ever shot at as she never wanted to shoot the gun when she was younger. She was hunting with her boyfriend when 2 doe came into shooting range, she finally got the cross-hairs of the scope leveled on the deer and shot, the first deer fell in it's tracks and the second one staggered a few feet then fell over. She wasn't trying to shoot two deer, she was just concentrating on the first deer and just so happens the two deer got lined up and the 50 cal. muzzle loaders shot went through both deer. Heck of a thing to happen on a first deer. She's fired up now, she can't wait to get back to the woods.
Well barry those kinda hunts always get you fired up for another one. Tell her to start video taping it thats what we do and we have a video of turkey hunting that i had to run and chase down the turkey... you never know what your gonna see huntin! you tell her i said congrats!
