Quite a night.

Well I went hunting tonight, Next to last day of Missouri gun season. I was sittin there under my tree when about 4:40 I seen a Doe out in the field. I knew she was quite a ways away, over 200 Yards, but I wasnt sure how far. She was slowly making her way towards me so I figured she'd come on in and give me a closer shot. Well she saw somethin she didnt like and started working her way towards the neighbors fence. I figured I'd take the shot while I had it. I shot, and she came about 15 yds closer. So I shot again, and I couldnt see her. I didnt see her jump the fence, but I didnt see her drop. So I walk up there disgusted in my self that I missed, and there she was dead. She had all kinds of blood aroud her head and comin out her nose, so I assumed I lunged her. I got to lookin and turns out I shot her right through the eye, it exited through her neck and lodged in the base of her spine. I assume thats why I didnt see her fall, The head shot probably dropped her pretty quick.

The shot wasnt quite what I was aiming for but I'll take it.

Walked her off at a hair over 200 yards. Not bad for a 30-30.

No, no no! You're supposed to say you were aiming at the eye because you don't like to track!...never admit that wasn't your target. :s12::D

Thanks! She should be good eatin.

She dont look as big in that picture as she actually was. She was one of the bigger Does Ive shot. But she kinda fell in a gully and that mixed with the bullet lodging in the spine kinda ceased her up. I'll try to get another picture when shes hanging, that'll give ya a better Idea of her size.
