We got home from Ft Bragg about 10:30 Wednesday night. Had a big Thanksgiving dinner Thursday. Friday we went and got the old truck title notarized and a hunting license for him. Saturday we left home about 4:00 and drove out to the Paw Paw bends and walked to our old favorite shooting point. The shots there will range from about 225 yards to about 450 yards so we had the F-class rifle which is a 40X in 308 with a Night Force scope. About 15 minutes after legal shooting time I picked up a six point buck feeding along the hillside in the Kowa spotting scope. Phil flopped down behind the 40X and we got the deer ranged out. The buck simply would not give us any kind of a shot. Either it would stop at a bad angle or behind a tree or behind limbs. Finally, it just bedded down next to a log and we had no shot. So we just keep watching does come and go. Then the does behavior changed and I told Phil I thought the buck was on the move so we started trying to find it. When we found it what we saw was that a new buck had come onto the hillside and that was what had upset the does and the first buck. The new buck was the same size as the first buck so Phil got set up on the closest one and I ranged it at 260 yards. The buck moved for a little while along the hillside and finally stopped in a manner that gave Phil a shot. There was a limb over the lower chest so he held high and put the 175 Sierra MK right into the spine. This is a nice sized deer for the Green Ridge forest. You can see the entrance hole high on the side.
