Congratulationsgot my first deer of the year.
get my first deer in almost 3 years.
it was a by permit only for disabled sportsmans, any legal weapon hunt in central/north eastern North Carolina
they (NC wildlife commission folks) got us all to our designated blinds by 10:45 am this morning. figured i wouldn’t see any bucks or anything really till about dusk.
well after seeing a couple wild turkeys, and a couple spiders fighting the wind to make webs, approximately 6:45pm, a doe came staggering out of the wood line.
the first 10ish seconds after she came out, she gave me the perfect broad side shot.
but by the time i settle in and relaxed (5-10 seconds after that) the was slightly quartering away.
sent my hand loaded 110gr accubond her way. hit her mid shoulder and it exited out on yhe outer edge of her other shoulder.
left a good blood trail, found her piled up about 60 yards away from where i shot her. pulled the heart, no damage so it was a lung shot
big shout out to the NC Wildlife folks that helped put this on and helped us.
they skinned, and dressed this sucker out with such speed and finesse.
AR15, put together around a AR-performance 18” 6.8 SPC II barrel, CMMG 2 stage trigger, vortex 2-7 scope
27.5 (or 26.5)gr RL10x, i’ll have to check my notes but if memory serves me correct that charge puts it round 2600 FPS
