This season hadn't gone the way I'd planned, missed the best parts of bow and gun season between family commitments and several weeks battling the walking crud. About every time I have been able to go out, too much wind or wrong direction, moon about full, jumping them walking in, etc... Reminds me of what Al Swearengen (Deadwood) had to say about it.

I had killed a nice sized spike early in gun season, but I really wanted to be able to provide some meat to family, especially my Grandpa George. He's taught me a ton and has kept me in catfish my whole life, I really wanted him stocked up with some deer for the year.

Anyway, long story short, yesterday I was able to cherry-pick the biggest doe from a large group and the second biggest one stopped within range so I had a shot at her too (hunting woods). Chests measured 38" and 35", almost 300 lbs. on the hoof between the two of them.

Blessed indeed!

Scene from 20 ft. up in the climber.


First doe from yesterday. Couldn't find any blood, the way she bolted thought I'd missed. Finally found where she'd actually been when shot and picked up the trail. Found her 135 yds. later, hit right behind the shoulder where I'd put it. Never had one go more than 50 yards shot the way she was. She was a good 150-155 lbs.


Yesterday's second doe, pushed 140 lbs. herself. She dropped where she stood.


Field dressed and dropped off at Mason's.


Big-bodied spike from November. "Cull buck" for the big timers out there, but I was grateful for him.

No atv for me, manhandled all the way. Whips me every time.


Grandpa George showing how it's done summer 2012, boatload of White River AR catfish.

Me, Grandpa, and my cousin Brad. Brad was on leave from Air Force and was able to run with us.


Happy, happy, happy! He gone.

P.S.
I LOVE this community, can't believe I'd never heard of it before now. Thanks to everyone for sharing, hope to get to know you better.

Great pics and glad your here. This place is like a wine cellar. You may come across some you like and some you love which get better with time others maybe not so good but then you just don't open that bottle again. You will find some of the finest people on here and make great friends. Others you just have to ignore ;\)

Welcome to our camp fire!
