Default Allison Shoots and She Scores

Allison got home from college for Thanksgiving yesterday afternoon. We got up at 4:30 this morning to head to the lease for her first hunt of the year and first hunt since her quest for her first deer was interrupted by knee surgery last year.

Based on the reports from Monday, we set up in a box stand overlooking the big field on our lease. Action was hot there on Monday with the young man that hunted there seeing a lot of chasing.

At 7:10 I spotted a doe making her way into the field, followed shortly by what looked like a fat 3 pointer. Reports are that he ate a lot of corn over the summer and up to deer season.

Buck headed behind some trees and disappeared. Doe fed back and forth for about 30 minutes, then walked into the woods.

Time passed with no more sightings until about 9:15 to 9:30 when we heard noise to the left behind us. Eventually spotted through the bicoulars what looked to be two does running through the woods. Sat until a little after 10AM with no more sightings.

Since I am supposed to be working from home today, I decided to get down and head to home/work.

While walking out of the field, we heard a noise to the left where we had previously seen the two deer running. Nothing materialized and as we headed out of the field, Allison stopped me and we had a doe bust out of the woods on the other side of us. I tried to stop her but no luck until she was over the hill back towards our stand. As I raised up a little to look, she took off.

Allison is watching where she came from and says "I was hoping something was chasing her and would come out"

About that time she raises her rifle. The old man realized that her young eye must see something, and I squat back down beside her.

A 3 pointer is coming through the woods and heading into the field. I told her to take him, which was a good thing because she later told me that she was taking him anyway.

He entered the field broadside as I was telling her to take him, he stops, slightly quarters to us, and she let loose with the .243

He turned and ran off and she muttered under her breath believing she missed him.

I asked where the cross hairs were and as she points toward her shoulder, I hear him hit the ground and thrash twice, and told her he was down.

We headed up to the spot where he was standing, and didn't see blood right off the bat, but I was confident he was down and felt pretty sure of wher he would be, so I told her to stay put for a second.

Walked in and headed to where I though he had dropped and didn't see anything. Turned and headed back toward her and after taking a step around a tree, I saw him laying there and called her in.

Perfect shot entering the base of the shoulder and exiting about half way back in the rib cage.

Boys, this is a Booner in my books. I was so happy and proud and so was she.

Hope she didn't mutter the word Allison muttered.

I'd have to add some sunrise details and throw in some blue warbler references to compete with Lackey.
