Well we had no luck locating this deer over the last week but the weather has not cooperated in the least, high 70`s to mid 80`s all week.matter of fact we only laid eyes on one buck all week long little 4 point that was 400 yds away. we took a walk down some trails i shed hunted last spring, to my surprise the oaks produced a pretty good acorn crop this year not stellar but enough to hold overheated deer in the timber. He had a chance at a doe last night 60 yds and missed it clean i was out of position to help him much since we noticed them as soon as we left cover he tried to reload and shoot again but after seeing him pull the trigger multiple times while closing his eyes i had to move and scared them off. turns out in his haste to make the shot he did`nt get the breech closed all the way. I`ll have to stock up on slugs and have him practice more to get him over that flinch, squeezing the trigger and keeping your eye on target is one thing i have focused on with him he just needs more experience.
a funny thing happened yesterday morning we were told of a "fawn" that had a collar last weekend and to please not shoot it so on our way in at 6 we hear all this rustling in the woods and out comes this doe running into the yard of a house after snooping around some freshly uprooted pine tree holes she followed us into the public land, hung around us to watch the sunrise, then wandered off, some people
I even had time to take a pic i left it big since it`s so dark did`nt want the flash to spook it.
we still have muzzleloader season! and i get to hunt this week WOOHOO!
