George got his first deer late this afternoon and it is a BIG buck!
So, for you men......George and I were sitting out at the edge of the farm lane, George sitting on a chair with gun propped up beside him. I was standing behind him glancing through a magazine and the dog was roaming all around the area. We were back there for about 15 min. all the while surveying the hill in front of us and not sitting still at all. All of a sudden we both saw 6 deer way up on the hill. He slowly lifted his gun and handed me a pair of binoculars. He studied them through his scope and me through the horrible pair of binoculars. He sees horns (I see none) on the first deer, looks at the second deer and sees bigger horns (I think I see little ones) and tells me he is going to shoot! Shoot he did - 150 yds - and the buck immediately dropped! We ran/walked/puffed up the hill! As we approached the deer, he tried to get up. Who wouldn't if you had a dog nipping at your back end! George shot him again and finally got a good look at the rack. A 10 point with a 20" spread! What a whooping and hollering went on! His first shot hit the buck in the backbone, his second shot in the chest. Let's see, any details I missed? :)
What a grand experience! So fun and exciting!
Until next time. . . . . . . .
