Killed this magnum doe opening day of our regular firearms season with the smokepole.
Still looking for the right buck to hang a tag on.
Good luck to everyone hitting the woods this Thanksgiving day weekend!

Thanks guys!
I didn't get her home until after dark so pics had to wait till the following morning.
As a matter of fact, there wasn't even any snow on the ground when I killed her but it worked out alright for the pics.

Well, it doesn't look like there will be any bone going home this year until shed season. Let a lot of yearling bucks walk and only saw a handful of 2.5 year olds.
No complaints here though as my freezer is full.

On 11-28-16 I had another nice doe in my sights at 30yds. Everything looked good to go through the scope from the blind when she walked out into a shooting lane. One small sapling ruined all that and I caught a deflection.
My ML bullet deflected and veered off it's course catching the fawn behind her off to her right. I was a little upset with that one, but the shot hit her perfectly resulting in a quick clean kill.
That one could have ended much worse with an unrecovered animal.

This past weekend I got out on 12-18 to take another nice doe for the late ML season. Switched things up a bit and did some still hunting for a change of scenery and caught up to her at 30yds.
Another opportunity I couldn't pass up and likely the ending to a good meat season.
Focus will switch to coyotes and photography from here forward.
Merry Christmas to all!

You have had a good season. All I can think of is sausage and jerky... I never used my tag this year. Congrats again.
