Made a drive last Saterday,kickt out 5 deer.The buck came out first,my brother openend up on him @ 55yards with a 20ga slug.The buck is confused and unhit-runs twards my brother while he is still unloading(very steep angle he forgot to aim low :-( and jammed that damn old Mossberg.Buck stops broadside @ 40 yards but by now he is outa shell.The big guy takes off for the neighbors and we hear shots,figure the neighbor got him.....Wrong turns out a couple of guys from outa the area were trespasing and got him(pissed dont begin to explain it,I passed on him 2 years ago and missed last year)
Doe and fawn come out next but brother doen't take the shot as it was back twards the drivers.
Drive is all but done and my guard is down when nephew yells deer.I swing to see deer and nephew in sight picture so I dont take the safty off.Doe stops well past nephew but the damn safty is still on and by the time I get it off the neighbors house is in back of the doe...wait till they clear the building site and miss a hurried shot as they went over the bluff road.Trail them to make sure there is no blood.
Long story short,the nice buck we where after was taken by tresspassers(after my buck fevered brother forgot how to aim).Figured I'd talk to them when I cool down but get madder everytime I think about it.
We saw 5 got none but had a great time hunting with Dad,brother and three nephews!
