Default 30 minutes left in our season and????

Had to settle for a doe. It was the last day of our Muzzle Loading season and tonight at about 4:45 I finished mine with about an 80 lb. doe. The 240 grain Hornady hollow point sabot did a fine job, about a 70 yard shot and she went about 75 yards before she crashed. After letting numerous does and small bucks walk by, I waited all rifle season and all M.L. season for Mr Big but it just did'nt happen and I was almost out of deer meat so she will do just fine.

Strut I will be envious of you eating that yummy doe while I am chewing my OLD buck! He was so old his antlers were on the downhill side. Congrats on your doe.

As far as I can see it you got a trophy, by seeing the game and letting all those potential trophies walk for future years. Standards are set personally and much more rewarding when they are adhered too, the success is you took a mature deer and have some great eats for the winter. Better than a young basket rack thrown in the corner of your garage or shed and feelings of I should have let him go. Obviously a lot better than the option of tag soup as well

Congrats.
