The 2010 deer hunting season can be called a success for this little blogger. Tonight was a good night for me and my Browning 30.06! The deer you see before you has been chased pretty hard for the last couple of weeks. That is when he showed up on my trail camera as well as the trail camera of my brother-n-law's who hunts on the same hunting lease with us. It was a race to see who would take this buck and a race that I am glad to say that I won. I have to admit that I thought that this deer was much larger than this. If you look at his trail camera pictures you would have thought that he would score in the 150's. Now that I have him in my hands he is more like a 140 class. He will score less than that though because he has broken off two tines within the last couple of days. I guess I will now be after the buck that was man enough to tie into this one!
I have to say that prayer works! Ever since I saw this buck on my trail camera I have asked the Lord to bless me by giving me an opportunity to to at least have a shot at this deer. Tonight he answered my prayers and I dropped him with one shot at 200 yards. I would like to sit here and tell you that I made a perfect shot, but the truth is I almost missed him. I hit him high right below the spine and the bullet was retrieved out of his opposite lung. He dropped like you had hit him in the head with a hammer. God is good!
Now I can relax and get ready for my trip to Kansas at the end of this week! Daddy and I will be making our way to Beloit, Kansas on Friday for three days of Pheasant hunting fun! I'm sure that I will continue to be blessed as I enjoy the outdoors with my Dad!
