    Default Late season success

    Managed to get in for the second week of shotgun in the controlled hunt and only got out Monday morning, Friday afternoon and Saturday and Sunday. Never saw anything during my rifle week in November and up until this morning didn't see anything either. Last minute this morning I decided to change my setup because the wind was straight on me and terribly cold. I saw an area yesterday with tons of tracks and figured I'd give it a go today. Woke up this morning and didn't really want to get out of bed knowing the forecast for today but you can't get your deer from home so off I went. The last minute change had the howling wind right behind me but I needed some shelter so not much I could do. 8:10 a doe steps out and I make myself ready. Then a minute later a second one, bigger, steps out. I'm going to take that one. Shot goes off and I don't see the deer. I thought that I missed. The other one is still there so I figured that I might as well take that one. Another shot and she drops. Give her a few minutes and give thanks for being fortunate before I go to check her out and about 10 yards away in the bush is the second one. Both tags filled for this year on the last day after not seeing a single one all season. Freezer will be full again.

    Congratulations to all who were also successful this year.Attachment 36279Attachment 36278

    I guess this is the controlled hunt, how many deer can you take in that area?

    Good shooting,well done...I managed to pull the same off a few years ago in the rifle season,saw two spike horns in a field when I pulled up to hunt the property, both about 60 yards away 2pm in the afternoon.Shot one and it dropped, looked up after the shot and the deer is still standing,I assumed his partner had run off.Shot again and it dropped.Went over and found both deer within 15 yards of each other.
    They can do some pretty stupid things and just stand around after a shot is fired.

    I always had that thought in my head, shoot one then move to the next and son on, somehow it only ever works in dreams, ha ha.

    Congrats

    You know though, 2 deer means twice the dragging and twice the work
