Well today was the second day of Bama's gun deer season. Yesterday a fellow just about 200 yards from me killed a nice big 10 point I think would have come my way had he not been there to cut it off first. The normal path is passed there and then up to my stand.

Today I was back in the stand and he was at home. :)

This is the result.



During doe days in Bama the limit is two deer per day only one of which can be a buck but both can be does. These fell to my R700 LSS Mtn. Rifle in 7-08 using Hornady Light Magnum ammo. The larger one was hit first and ran maybe 35 yards. The smaller one fell where she stood.

Congrats!

Congrats! Are gun season just opened here in central NY a week ago[11/18]. I shot a decent sized 8 point the other day. He was chasing a doe. Went 144 1bs. field dressed on the scales. Shot him with a Remington 1100 shotgun and handloaded saboted slugs at about 45 yards. He wasent a monster, but i was happy none the less. :-D
