So last night I decided that since I have not been seeing bucks of shootable size I would buy a doe tag and see if I could punch a hole in one as they come into the field at 1160 yards. i get all set up, and start taking ranges to verify everything is right, I get my rifle all dialed in and I am sitting there, decide to take a few more ranges and....nothing. I usually change the battery in my Geovids once a year buy I hadnt done it this year and well... long story short, i went and found a different spot to hunt where my only shot wasnt going to be over 1k. I only saw a small 2 point.... I have a fresh battery in my binos now so I am gonna be good to go next time I go out.
Anything less than overkill is underachievement!
