got to go deer hunting today. got to the river late, after sunup, but decided to stay all day. i was sitting on a hill when this little 10 point trotted through the salt cedars 300 yards away. the sun was right above him and it was making it hard to see, but i have to put meat in the freezer right now. i shot over him and he took off, then stopped to look for me. he wasn't in line with the sun then, and i had a better shot. that shot hit him a little far back but knocked him down. he did the belly crawl thing for 10 feet and died. i shot him with my weatherby .30-06 and 165 grain sierra pro hunters. i can't say enough good things about those bullets. the deer wasn't gut shot but the bullet also wasn't close to the lungs, although both lungs were destroyed. this is one of the smallest bucks i have ever shot, but i am going to do a skull mount with him anyway. he has really dark antlers which i haven't seen much except in the mountains. most of our whietails' antlers are almost white. i just processed a big hog, now i have 2 coolers of deer meat to do! i love hunting season. thanks for reading.
