Oops I did it again

This hunting trip was short and sweet. A real blitzkrieg. Went after the work to see if any whitetails are on the move as it's been raining almost all day. Weather was a bit better and it was dripping away a few drops every now and then. We didn't have to wait for too long. Less than hour when I saw young doe coming to eat some grass from the forest. I waited about ten minutes to get a broad side shot. Distance was about hundred yards. Freezer is filling up quickly.

    Nice you are seeing deer and getting good shots off, any bucks being seen? Are they rutting yet in your neck of the woods?

    I haven't seen any bucks yet but some other guys who live in the middle of our hunting area have seen them. There's supposed to be a couple of real monsters. Rutting hasn't started yet here. I guess I'm moving to bucks from now on as I have a lot of venison again in the freezer.
    Luckily we have a lot of licenses left as no one hasn't shot any bucks this season.

    Man, I am getting real anxious to get out a hunt. Weather is starting to cool off here...

    I'm jealous! Good hunt!

    I went to the beach today... :tooth:

    That 30-06 is getting more action since you bought it than most guns get in a lifetime! Good for you!!!

    How do you say "you suck" in Finnish (or whatever language you speak)?

    Nicely done! :win:

    The guy that subleases me the land I hunt on called me this morning and ask if I was going to hunt this year. It's A year by year thing for me. I broke into a happy dance, and busted my ass again!!! LOL! Just kidding, but now I'll mail him my money.

    I'm so in love with that rifle. It was 3rd of september last year when I shot my first big game with it. Roe deer. Now, only twelve months later I have got 12 big game animals with it. And six months out of that year has been out of season => no hunting.
    I just can't believe my luck. And as I'm a bit of superstitious I "know" that I can't never hunt with anything else unless I want to lose my luck :) I was a bit nervous when I changed my scope to my precious 798 but I have got four animals with the new combo so I guess I'm safe and sound and out of the harms way with it :) :)
