Well after having an unsuccessful season at bagging a deer I finally did it this morning on some private property in Sullivan County. Shot this doe at about 120 yards with my AR15. Barnes 55 grain VOR-TX did a number on her. Went in through a rib hit both lungs and out the other side. After the shot she ran about 50 yards did a backflip and crashed. I wanted to weigh her but I didnt have any scales and neithr did Wally World. I'm guessing she was around 110 lbs before I gutted her and probably around 90 lbs now.

Just shows that you never know when luck is going to be with you even in a tough year. 2004, I didn't get a chance at a deer until sunset the last day.
