well monday we went down to the red river, and it was really windy! we got 4 miles back on the river and before we set up i sprayed this stuff called buck bomb all over a salt cedar on the windward side of the riverbank. this was done as more of a joke to my buddy travis, because i rarely use scents. well about 30 minutes later as i was contemplating taking a nap, a big mulie buck walked right up to that cedar and put his face in it. i got all exited and using my knee for a rest, pulled the shot horribly. i hit him really far back. well he got off the river, i thought, and i went to where he was. it looked like a crime scene and there was blood sprayed everywhere. instead of staying where i was, i went to see where he went into the ranchland. he had bedded right behind a sandhill at the edge, and was off the river before i could shoot again. i just wanted to make sure it was a trail i could follow and ended up bumping a gutshot deer. not a good thing to do. well where i am at if a landowner catches you on their property, gun in hand or not, they can have you arrested. none of the landowners down there like that we can legally hunt the river; they say they own it. so we get back to the bridge and call the game warden, and he says he can't come out that day, and that i should drive the roads up there and see if i can find out who owns the property, then ask their permission. so we spent a few hours going to houses up there, and some weren't home, and others looked out their curtains and wouldn't answer the door. so i lost a deer. i don't give a rip about the horns, even though they were massive, it's the meat he would have put in the freezer. judging him from other mulies i have shot, he was over 200 pounds easy. so i am bummed. on the flip side, one of my buddies shot a 250# boar, and another shot a 300 pounder. thanks for reading.
