.........October 20, Monday>.......killed 7 squirrels real quick, then went to get some freezer meat at the 6 acre alfalfa field bait plot..........Sara's little boy Jake was with me........9 antlerless deer came out about 3 minutes after we settled in against a big oak tree..........about 110 yards........killed one, and the others bolted..one stopped to look back.......big mistake, hammered that one at about 200 yards.........both dropped in their tracks...........the one 1.5 year old weighed 110!!!.......a real good weight for our neck of the woods!!!........before we started QDM and whacked the herd back, most of our 1.5 year old does weighed about 75 pounds..........got home from the processors and there were 7 in Sara's driveway eatin' Sawtooth acorns..........

Alot to be said for that John. I have passed up some shooters as well due to not having a shot I felt comfortable with. It's not easy to do always, but it IS the right thing to do.

..yup...it took real restraint............the one time it was too thick.........the other he was clearly across the property line............if I was a lyin', poachin SOB he'd be at the taxidermist....had a clear shot.........when he crossed the property line it was too thick to shoot...........he's still out there, though.....
