4th doe of the season down

On tuesday morning I was hunting in a stand over looking a corn feild, here in western NY. At about 0700 two doe poped their heads over a small hill at 400 meters, and proceded to walk tawards me. I hit them with my range finder a few times and decided on the best place, at which to engage the larger doe.
It was a 95 meter shot to my intended ambush point. I was shooting a remington 1187 with a smoth bore and rifle sights from an elevated position about 15 feet off the ground.
It was a very uncomfortable shooting position, that I had to work myself into for the shot. I recited the fundementals in my head before I touched the trigger, and at the shot I heard a whack and she ran into the woods. After a few hours I got down and began to fallow the blood trail. She went 400 meters before I found her. The blood trail was very heavy and easy to fallow. The shot was good through and through but upon inspection of the vitals I found that I had only taken one lobe of her right lung.

    Thanks Len, I was wishing I had my muzzle loader at that moment but due to some sabot issues I grabed the shotgun.

    In NY we have a month of bow hunting, then a month of gun season. In the county I live in you can use a muzzle loder, shotgun, pistol or bow during the firearms season. Then we get 2 weeks of late bow/muzzle loder hunting.

    As far as tags go, I get a buck tag for bow season a buck tag for the regular firearms season, then if I dont use the bow tag from the buck season it becomes a either sex tag for the late season. I got 4 doe tags for the season. My wife also got all of the same tags. I have only used 2 doe tags so far as my neighbor get some tags called DMAPS (15 of them) for his property.

    I also have nusence tags from alot of the local farmers that I can use from march to august. My father inlaw gets 25 of these and you can hunt them with what ever you like until 11pm with a spot light.

    Most of them are donated to a program for the neede here in NY. In the county I live there is some where in the area of 115 deer per square mile.
