We had seen lots of deer, just nothing I wanted to shoot. Last day, I got caught getting ready to climb a tree, didn’t even have my tree stand off my back. I heard a doe snort from behind me, when I turned, I raised my binos looking for the deer, saw bone and reached for my rifle on the ground. I remembered to chamber a round, so, made all that noise and movement and he still just stood there. Propped up on a tree and shot him in the left front shoulder. He ran about 50 yards and went down. I didn’t know what I’d shot till I walked over there... wasn’t any ground shrinkage... now the work starts...
