My first deer with my LRH
I waited all season to see something I liked but it wasnt to be, it was just killing me because I really wanted to test my new gun and my newly aquired skills. The doe only season just started and there wont be another buck season so no sense in waiting anymore.
I had several different opportunities tonight but I really wanted to shoot over 400 and everything I saw was under or it wasn't right, and then one came out at 420 so I did everything like I practiced, used the reticle for elevation adjustment and sent the 141 grain 6.5 just a little higher than where I thought it would hit by about 2-3 inches but otherwise right on. I was actually able to see her fall, I have shot a lot of deer in my life but that was really a trip. It was all about deer management to me and the only reason I bought a LRH was because it is a shotgun or pistol only area but I realized tonight that this brings a whole new aspect to hunting that I would have never thought posssible. I never enjoyed the shooting it was always the hunting side that I loved but I guess now I will be able to double the fun!
