I started deer hunting the opening day of bow season, Oct. 15. I have hunted 2 or 3 times each week since then. I have seen over a hundred deer. But until yesterday I had not killed any. Those close enough weren't big enough. Those big enough weren't close enough. I did let three 3 and 4 point bucks walk. A couple of times fawns just about pestered me into shooting them. Both times they played around out in front of me for over an hour. But my shooting threshold kept getting lower. And yesterday when this fellow gave me a 75 yard shot, well, you can see the result below. He is nothing to brag about, but he will taste good. And from the look of his rack, it was probably good to remove him from the gene pool.
But here is one I would really like to get.
And here is one I think I need to remove from the gene pool.
(Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
(Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
