I had an eight point buck in my sights the other day. It was only about 75 feet from me. Motionless. I could have taken the shot.
Unfortunately, it was my back yard in Ballwin, Missouri where we have an "urban deer" problem.
Shooting him would have brought the criticism of the neighbors and the local police department may have had a few opinions.
I had to watch as he simply strolled across my back yard, very slowly.
