At 10:15 this morning as I walked up to my favorite stand, I interrupted a young 6 point attempting to breed a doe. I got within 30 yards of 'em before they took off into some planted pines. I quickly climbed up into the A-frame ladder stand and cocked the T/C Encore .308 just in time to see a doe come bolting out of the pines and running across the food plot to my left. I've killed a lot of running deer with a shotgun, but had never attempted a rifle shot on a running deer..........trotting and walking, but never flat out hauling ass before. I led her by about a foot and rolled her up where she slid to a stop and kicked twice at 10:18. The only problem was when I walked the 60 yards to her, it wasn't the big doe that the young buck was trying to breed; it was a 52 lb Bambi!!!!!!!! I was proud of the shoulder shot on the running deer, but embarrassed by what she turned out to be. Anyhow, it'll fit on the bar-b-q pit or the stew pot, and this makes #4 for the season so far.
