Well Bullblaster barely salvaged his reputation today! Zero deer moving in this downpour.  Chris decided to do a little push so we moved from our hay bail sanctuary and set the gun out for a prone shot as where they would come through was gonna be a medium range poke. 

Chris had barely left us when a doe came through. Sure enough, here comes a buck in hot pursuit! Addison got on the gun, found him through the very wet scope lenses, and got settled. I was able to stop him with a coyote howl and she torched one off. Hit wasn't perfect but it was good enough and he expired quickly! Took us a hot second to find him in the tall CRP but once we got him we made quick work of the knife stuff and got the heck out of the rain!

Awesome...
Thanks for sharing, Karl. A thread I look forward to every year.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Well done young lady!
Those are the memories she will tell your grandchildren about long after you and I are gone.
