Had to fill my Pickup with gas Wednesday,its half way to the Lake so I decided to go hunting on Corps of Engineer Land,which I never had really hunted.
Get over there,went across a Bean field.Thought to myself this sure would be a good place for a Deer to come out and the wind is right.
Was setting there,heard Turkeys,next thing I know I had more Turkeys around me than I had seen in a long time.They stayed there all evening,then went on down to go to roost.I'm setting there listening to them and talking to a Squirrel.
Look across about 100 yards see a nice Buck.Not sure if this is Antler restricted area or not.He turns his head sideways,yelp he is Big enough.Was hoping he would get closer,called to him,no dice.Had a Doe with him.
Sat there watching him,its getting darker.Ok he is not coming any closer,open Sights,Bullets I have never used before.Do I trust my shooting?Line up with the Leg,aim just a little over half way up,squeeze the Trigger,can't see,then two White Tails going throught the Brush.Did I miss?See him piled up in a ditch.
Field Dressed him.Call my wife told her to meet me at the Pickup.By the time I get up there she is there.We get the Cart and got him out.
He wasn't very Big in Body and was scared up Big time,so he was an Old Scraper.
