There was no fear in that buck. We came around a bend in the road and there they were, him and 5 does. He had his nose way up one of the does' butt. I get out of the truck, run to the nearest fence post (about 25 yds. away), take a rest and fire. Deer shows no reaction at all. I couldn't see how I missed at that range (75 yds. or so), but I fire again. Deer goes down. When I cleaned him, clearly 2 entry hole, 1 exit hole and a bullet under the hide of the far shoulder. First shot was evidently fine, he was just so intent on that doe that he had no idea of anything else going on around him. These critters do some crazy things. Anyway, no, I didn't scare him to death, he died of lead poisoning. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
I moved to Montana, bought a Sendero, and the first 3 deer I took were less that 50 yards away. Go figure.
