Hey all was out sunday ( Last day of Deer Gun season ). I was sitting in a ground blind with my cousin Brad, when a 6 point came out about 60 yards away. I motioned to my cousin to be still, as I put my gun up on my makeshift gun rest ( A y branched stick lol ). I guess he didn't see it untill I was getting ready to shoot, because right ( and I mean EXACTLY ) when I started tp squeeze the trigger and all excitedly taps on my arm and in a frantic voice says THERES A DEER ( Dumb @$$)... It was too late... It was more like .. He tapped on my should ( BOOM, I shot ) then " there's a deer ". With him tapping on my shoulder right when I shot, it kind of through my shot off, and I ended up hitting it dead in the spine with my 3 inch Lightfield Commander IDS ( 12ga ).. The deer dropped instantly and didn't move. I waited about 10 minutes, then went up to it. It was an ok 6 point. No trophy, but its filling up my freezer with venison. If I would have missed, It would have been the last day of deer gun season and the last day of life for my cousin Brad. lol
congrats on a nice looking 6 point. maybe next time Brad will be sitting 200 yrds away. lol
whack em and stack em
congrats on a nice deer. next time tell brand never to say anything.
However, Maybe you were a little off and if not for Brad tapping your shoulder you would have missed I think you better say thank you
Integrity, if you have it nothing else matters. If you don't nothing else matters!!!!
Congrats on the buck.Better late than never.
It looks like you figured them out after all. Good job putting it all together.
A hunter should never let himself be deluded by pride or false sense of dominance. It is not through our power that we take life in nature; it is through the power of nature that life is given to us. Richard Nelson
Congrats TeamRealTreeHD! I was wondering if you did any good this week. After all your chaos, you were still able to back a nice buck. I'm glad to see you were able to get a buck on Sunday. Thats 1 more buck than me and my buddy saw on Sunday. I filled my tags for the year Saturday by shooting a doe. I was hoping my buddy would get a buck, but we didn't see any horns on Sunday. We anyways, there's always muzzleloading for him. Congrats bud!
Thanks everyone... Yeah, hinge... I figured em' out. There is a cornfield on the neighboring property, and I found out they are feeding at night, and crossing back over into the thickets on the property I hunt in the early mornings. So I sat in a off a couple trails on the edges of the thickets waiting for the to cross over... and my wait paid off.... Maybe for muzzleloader.. You, ( or someone else) could accompany me on a hunt.... Just let me know if you or anyone else is interested..
Nice job, TeamRT!
Patience and persistence... they pay!
He has no gallery to applaud or disapprove of his conduct... Whatever his acts, they are dictated by his own conscience rather than a mob of onlookers. It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of this fact.
As for this year, my season in Ohio is over. I shot my buck during bowseason and I filled my final tag by harvesting a doe during gun season. Good luck during muzzleloading season and keep us posted on your hunts. Thanks for the offer and look me up next year.
