To spend a GORGEOUS Tuesday afternoon. 
Weather's clear, light breeze  temp was upper sixties when we got here.


Now we're just awaiting our "dinner guest's" arrival :D

    If the "guest" is the camera, it's mounted to a flexible tripod clamped to the window

    The hardware is my REM 799 that started life as a 7.62x39 that neither I nor Teach couldn't make shoot.

    It now wears a Shilen #1 contour CS .264 8T barrel chambers in 6.5 Grendel. Burris 3-9x32 Timberline scope. A custom, hand braided, paracord sling and loaded with 120 Speer Gold Dots, 28.0 Ramshot TAC, New starline cases and CCI400 "spark plugs"

    Hell, I wasn't there to shoot the one yesterday, and nothing showed up today and I stayed until dark. 
    Didn't know about the one showing up yesterday, but know that, historically, they show up later at the field I hunt. After she killed tonight's doe. I told her, "Get comfortable, I'm staying until dark"
