Filled my antlerless permit at 7:30am on opening morning of gun season. Larger of two doe that passed my stand at 60 yards. One shot from a Mossberg 500 with Leupold M8 4X using Federal Premium Barnes Expanders.

Saw several other doe and one nice buck that didn't give me a shot. Going out again tomorrow for a couple of hours. Also have buck and doe tags for PA. Season opens there Monday after Thanksgiving.

What did I miss? See my "Ever Lose One?" thread.

Wednesday Update

Got a six-point this morning at 7:05am; same one I saw Monday morning. Back home, showered, and ready for the office by 9:30am. So I guess I'll call the season successful, despite losing the one during archery season.

Took a doe last Monday with a bow. Good sized one I might add. Going to PA for rifle season with my 300 Win Mag. Man does that round pack a punch! Haven't had one take another step after the hit. Some say overkill but I don't like to chase them. Good luck to all hunters. Hunt safe and smart.

I heard that a guy got shot in the head during Bear season in PA on Monday. Still alive but in critical condition.
