    Tomorrow is the big day!! Got a field to hunt where a few forkhorns are so I hope Katelyn can hold it togather an get one. Been shooting a bit the last few evenings ,and she is doing better . Though not quite what I would like [who cant wish better for thier child] The land owner said the shots would be 25-60 yds ,so today we shot at 50 with my .243 and though not as good as I had hoped ,all 6 ,two strings of three were on target ,within a 5" circle ,with three inside of two inches of the bull and one ,dead center. I think she can do it,.

    Like the rest will be waiting for the report. If she can shoot like that the deer don't stand a chance. Sounds like you've taught her right.Main thing is be CAREFUL out there.Lots of dummies out there.

    In for a meal and a short nap,We saw three bucks this morning,One a nice 4x4 ,he was about 200 yds away,I told her little far for your abilities yet. then two forkhorns, one mixed in with a bunch of does,no shot at 75 yds,and another fork at 100 never turned broadside,till he decided to scoot. after that ,we walked the canyons on our land ,I got some pics of the bluffs and the creek to post after we are done. We will go back to the alfalfa field this evenin and sit till dark,I got a good feelin, that eight might not be so lucky this afternoon.:wink:

    No deer to butcher this time,Theres still three days ,but school and work call. We had a fantastic hunt today,saw the same bucks,they just wouldn't keep out from behind the does ,The highlights of the day were watching the larger of the two forkhorns and a big 7 point mix it up in a sparring match as the sun came up this morning. Then this evening,I glassed two seperate heards of deer as the sun was sinking,25 mph wind from the west southwest ,we were facing north west. I caught movement to my right,a doe and two yearlings walked within 30 yds ,till the wind did its thing,:crazy:But a great first hunt. I will give ya some pics to gaze at tomorrow evening.

    Good luck on your hunt. I can't wait till my little girls get old enough yet. A couple more years and then she'll be ready.
