more deer

Laura's hunting story

So there she was.... We had seen some does with a little buck down about 1000 yrds away. We crept down to about 300 yds. The buck had left the does and was walking up the ridge closer to us about 175 yards. I told Laura to wait because he would come up the other side we got all set up and the buck started walking up the other side. I kept telling her to shoot it she said she could not see it again and again finaly she said i see it it is laying down i said no it is walking up the hill she said no it is laying down. of course we were looking at different deer she finaly saw the walking deer at 320 yards and shot. She missed it jumped then she shot again. The buck that she had seen laying down got up and it was a bigger buck. she had missed the littler one again so I said wait lets shoot the big one. The big one ran towards us and stopped at 175 yards Laura shot him and he went right down. Then the hillside exploded with deer they were everywhere there were a bunch of bucks. We sat about 1 hr just looking around and we spotted some bucks off about a mile they looked bigger then the ones that were still hanging around sparring even after laura had shot 3 times and so we snuck over there and I shot the biggest of the 4 it was a great trip with my great gal.
