Ive been away too long. But deer season has gone well.
The old Remington Model 81 in 35 Rem put the smack down on this one, and the munchkin helped me process it. 20 minutes after this doe went down, I had a buck come sauntering in and took what I felt was a nice shot on him. He dropped where he stood. Then, the goats went and tried to fight it and it ran off. Puddles of blood where he laid down, then nothing. I was pretty bummed to lose a deer.
This saturday I was sitting on the family farm in a stand I rarely hunt, but usually produces deer. Got busted right at sunset, so I decided to take a chance and try to flank the deer to the field I knew they would go to. Well, it worked and there in the field stood 10 or so deer milling about, with 3 minutes left of legal light. Picked to best looking doe and sent it with the 6.5CM. When the gun settled, there was still a deer standing where I shot, so I chambered another round and sent it. Come to find out, the first deer had fell where she stood, but I couldnt see her so I shot the second thinking it was the first. Got plenty of meat in the freezer now!
