Woke up at 5 AM this morning in the Pacific Northwest, had camped over night on an island. Wandered out into the darkness to wait for a deer. Heard some rustling in the leaves, walked up to where I heard the noise, and saw nothing. Then walked dejectedly back down.. just happened to look to my left, and there was a black-tailed doe, just staring at me. I stared back. Put my ear muffs on, took the safety off on my Mossberg 500, aimed, breathed, pulled the trigger. She ran about 20 feet before falling over dead. My first hunt was a success! My group bagged 6 deer in 2 days! I had some ammo for some Canada Geese, but we were too busy with deer!
