doe probably took a step or 2 before the bullet got there
No, the doe didn't move until the bullet hit it. My buddy who was in the stand with me heard the bullet hit the deer, then it started running. There were two other does feeding in the field at the same time. Neither one of them paid any attention to the shot. They continued feeding for another half hour, then went back into the woods. We then climbed down out of the stand and started trailing the deer.
(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.
