Default Now my forehead hurts...

Well, I did havea longer post, but I timed it out. And lost the post. [:@]

Sitting on a tree stump, I heard a crack off to my right. I looked to the right and seen that it was a buck directly to my right, about 15 yds away.Now my gun is laying in my lap pointing in the opposite direction. What the hell do I do? Take a risk and attempt to pivot around so I can get a good shot at him? Didn't want to risk it. So, I figured I would try this left handed. Now, my vision in my left eye is slightly different than the one in my right eye. So, when I attempted to line up with the scope,I noticed I needed to get CLOSER to the scope, and I was having difficulty keeping my dominant eye closed. Finally after winking at this buck and making him think I was a fruitcake, I finally got the crosshairs lined up on him and let it rip. Dropped him on the spot. THANK YOU! I was only 50 yds from the property line and the next door neighbor isn't exactly a nice guy.

Ended up being a 2 pointer with 8" spikes. Funny, I left my gloves back on the tree stump, but I did remember to grab the empty shell. Not bad I guess for a first deer.

Why did you take your empty shell? And why does your forehead hurt again?

But good Job!

Sack punch for no pics!!!

I took the empty shell just as a keepsake.
Forehead hurts because the forend of the gun was resting on my right hand finger tips and it jumped back slamming the scope on my forehead.
I can get pics tommorow, but they won't be the forum standard pics.

When I read he title I knew what you had done. I warn people about sneaking up on the scope. I've been touched a time or two but never hit hard. Seen plenty of people cut by the scope...Ouch!


Congrats on the Buck! We look forward to pics.
