Well thank god it was a short hunt this morning. Met a buddy before light and we set out.  It was hovering right at freezing and spitting snow and rain. Just like Addison's buck hunt, we were soaked before we even started.

The very first draw we looked into we were greated by the beautiful sight of deer EVERYWHERE!!!! There was at least 30 so we picked the ones who gave us the best approach and made our move.  We found super doe standing all by herself at 149 yards. We got setup on the tripod and Addison got settled in.  It was pretty steep downhill so we ended up having to shoot at a standing height but she executed her shot process and follow through flawlessly. She spun, ran 20 yards and nose dived into the snow.  We made quick work of poor pics and efficient knife work and got the heck out of there. Man we were wet! 

We just got down with dinner and some serious pool time at the hotel. A short 6 hour drive in the a.m. and I can finally park the truck for a while 😂
