Default Weekend double in MO

Ok, so it was 4 day weekend, but here's the story.

Started off Sat morning with a little doe. No pics of her because as I was cleaning her my knife decided to override the locking mechanism and close on my index finger. Took 4 stiches to close at the Emergency room Sat night.

On to this morning - Started off rattling after sunrise and had a bruiser come in, but wouldn't commit to the last 20yds. Right at 11:00, I hear leaves rustling behind me and turn to see a doe running down the trail. She stopped right at the edge of the clearing and looked around before taking a couple jumps to the far side. I was already grabbing my bow and standing up because I knew what was coming. He wasn't too far behind as he stopped short of the clearing just as she had. I hooked on my release and waited for his next (last) steps. He took just a few more steps putting him broadside at 10 yds. I touched off the release and watched him jump and buck and run off into the woods right behind where the doe had gone. I watched him dissappear and heard a couple collisions with logs, then the final crash. He didn't go 50 yds.

That is one busy weekend. Your legs must be tired from all that dragging. Congrats

Fortunately they were both short tracks (about 50 yds each) and an easy ATV ride to the truck from there
