Last buck I killed, I was halfway-ashamed to have used a rifle. Walked up on a nice mulie while he was napping. About 25 yards, maybe. Easy pistol shot.
Then there was the wet day I trailed a fat little 4x4 whitetail and eased up to about ten feet away. Hit him in the rump with a small rock. It's amazing how raucous laughter will seriously upset a deer.
