It is such an honor to be a part of "team awesome", especially when everybody else puts in the effort to bring along the ol' gal. I would not have been able to enjoy such awesome adventures if it weren't for the generosity and consideration the rest of the team gives. If more people emulated these young members of team "awesome" the world would be a much better place. I look forward to encountering future young hunters who have the same spirit, enthusiasm, and mindfulness as these companions who have shared their hunt with me. I am proud to see the person my daughter has become. As it has been said many times before, it isn't about the trophy as much as it is about the time spent with family and friends! Here's to all of your next adventures.

. The buck had bedded with a doe down a small drainage from us: I ranged them at 250 yards. Wielding my .243, my mom had never shot at an animal at that distance, so she wanted to get closer. I asked her to look at the buck one more time and make sure it was one she wanted. She confirmed, and I stayed put as she tried to use what little terrain we had left between us and the deer to her advantage to close the distance to a comfortable range.
Just to clarify why I haven't taken shots over 200 yards is because I have been muzzleloading for deer and elk for the last 20 plus years  :chuckle:

These sort of write ups are what makes the off season bearable! Can't wait for next years write ups! Keep that team going!

Thanks all... sorry I havenít been as active a participant as I have been... I am holding a second job in the off-season of fire, and somehow I blinked and itís almost fire season again! 🙈🤷🏻‍♀️ Oops!

I sure do cherish this community though... thanks for all the love and support through the years! Canít wait for the next adventure!
I am not opposed to golf, for I suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering deer.
