10 minutes left of the season......

So there I was, in my blind, looking down a trail about a hundred yards. sunset all but gone and ten minutes left of the eastern NC deer season. This doe walked out and fell in her tracks to my 30-06. My land is thick brush with only a few trails cut by my own hand. shots to the vitals are critical for a quick kill or there's a good chance i'll never find them.

If you'd seen me, you'd have thought i just shot the buck of my life. in reality, i was just ecstatic for one last chance to fill the freezer for the year. my wife is into venison now and we've been going through quite a bit since the season opened so i wanted very badly to take one more.

not sure if it was the cold or the kill, but i was shaking. no drug could even come close to that feeling.

I always say, it ain't the size of the deer in the hunt that matters, but the size of the hunt in the deer. Congrats, should be a good eater.

I love that feeling! Congratulations on the quick kill! I'm heading out tomorrow for perhaps the last time this season to see if I can add one last deer to the freezer.

Awesome! I'm hoping to put something in the freezer tomorrow. If not, it'll be a LOOOONG wait until next season.
