No deer this morning as the wind shifted about daylight, blowing right into the woods.
saw some movement in the grass and spotted a coyote taking a poop facing right at me.
put a 108 grain from the 6.5 man bun square into its chest, exiting just in front of the hind leg. It just fell over, never even twitched.
Sorry, I miss led you. This deer was taken with the outfitter, not the lease. I was going to head to lease and try find that drop point---The wife said I need to take care of business---I have to make the Sweet potato casserole for thanksgiving. We do have family coming in all week.
Several of the other leasee have a traditional family Thanksgiving hunt.
So I suggested to the wife I go down next Monday. She said, I need get to get ready for our Trip to Guatemala December 3. I hate it when she makes sense. This is a mission trip for church to dig a water well for a village that has no clean water.
When get back I have another church mission. I am going to take a doe and have the meat processed and it will be given to a hungry family in the church. I talked with the pastor and he says we have a family who could very much use the meat.
Moved to the stand this morning where I shot the muzzle loader buck.
When the sun came up, two does were on the feeder. They quit feeding while staring to the SW.
A row of trees blocked my view. Finally saw a single deer coming across the pasture.
Put the scope on it. Yep, it was a buck and big enough to need a ride to the “train station”.
He stayed on the other side of the tree row and kept walking north like he was on a mission, going out of sight. About 10 minutes later, the does bolted and he stepped out of the woods. Fatal mistake.
He left a 30 yard long blood trail a blind man could have followed with the 6.5 CM running a 108 grain HPBT.
Since my season is over now, came home across the Arkansas river that’s really low from the drought.
Saw a big hole and decided it might hold some fish, so went home loaded up the 4 wheeler and some tackle. Ended up catching and keeping two largemouth to put in my pond tomorrow.
