    OK, back home and have more time than just "waiting at a redlight" to post.

    My blind (first, upside down pic) was a bust because the feeder battery died. No idea how long it was out, but it was a couple days since NOTHING came in. Including squirrels. So, After swapping out to a new battery and installing a solar charger - in the cold, driving rain - I switched to another blind that we knew had some trash bucks and axis coming in.

    Saturday evening, I was in this blind and watching 3 yearling spike and button bucks screw around under the feeder. Finally, a bunch more whitetail came in, and there was a 2 year old fork horn in the mix. It was getting close to 5 (sundown in 5:30ish these days), so I was just about decided on the fork when an Axis doe came in. She was smallish, and obviously pregnant, so I really did not want to shoot her. So I got back on the 4 point, and was actually starting a trigger pull when the 5 (2x3) point strolled through. He was obviously at least 3 years old, and at least 6 inches taller in the shoulder than any of the other 8-9 deer in sight.

    Immediately, plans changed, and then it became a game of trying to get a shot lined up that would not hit one of the other deer on passthorugh. Finally, I had him lined up and shot him through the top of the neck and dropped him on the spot. As he hit the ground, a doe stopped pretty much in my sight picture. I would have hit her as well, but my empty casing on the DPMS LR-308 had bounced off the blind wall and right back into the action, jamming the gun. One in a million shot, looked like a 'stovepipe,' but had the case head sticking out instead of the case mouth. It took a couple of seconds to get that cleared up, and in the meantime, the rest of the deer decided to be somewhere on the other side of the property.

    He was a good sized buck, and netted a total of about 47 pounds of meat (minus backstraps and tenderloins) after quartering and deboning that will be turned into a bunch of sausage and stew meat. All it all, a great, muddy, cold, wet hunt.

    one other thing I wanted to report was that this season, I took a brand new Mora stainless companion knife:

    https://www.amazon.com/Morakniv-Companion-Outdoor-Stainless-4-1-Inch/dp/B00BTJKB00/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1513700529&sr=8-1&keywords=mora%2Bstainless%2Bcompanion&th=1

    this season, and right out of the box started using it. I made it through skinning and quartering 3 whitetail and half an Axis deer before it became noticeably dull in use. I just spent 2 minutes on a leather strop and brought it back to shaving sharp.

    If you don't have 2-3 of these in your hunting kit, you are missing one of the better deals in field blades.
