Arrow 2009-2010 Handgun Challenge Kill Sheet!

Please only use this when entering a deer to be scored for the challenge, and please use this format when entering your kill.

Scoring will be this. All does will score as 10 points. All bucks will score as 5 points, plus the number of points x 2. (i.e. a 4 point buck would score13 points, a 6 point buck will score 17 points, etc...). I want to do it this way to discourage people from shooting small bucks to just "score" when a doe will score just as well. The bigger the buck you hold out for, the better your score will be. Take does to rack up a score.

All entries must be entered within 5 days of the kill date.

Doe

I was hunting with a friend on his land in lamar Co. I sat in a ladder stand until 10:00 with White Oaks raining down and saw no deer.( he sat on a food plot and saw 10 does and a six point but didn't shoot)
I got down to check out a food plot I planned on hunting that evening, I knew about where it was but had never seen it. We were supposed to head for the truck at 11:00 so I had an hour to play. As I usually do I pulled out my ratchet cutters and made me an impromptu walking stick/shooting stick.
I got almost back to the road where the truck was and I glanced up the hill at a delapidated old ladder stand and saw a deer under it. I saw her she saw me! I froze with my binoculars up and rested them on my shooting stick.
I knew she was small and far away but the freezer is empty and my season has been extremely poor so far.

I waited for her to relax and turn broadside and I rested the Redhawk on the fork of the stick and put the red dot of the Ultra Dot sight on her shoulder and touched one off. She looked around and moved about five feet. Clean miss.

I settled down and did the same thing except this time it dumped her in the dirt. She laid there a minute and tried to pick her head up and I shot at her head and then realized the smart thing was to walk up to her and finish her. She was just about done but I ended it faster for her.

I had dropped my stick after the put down shot, so I got my range finder from my pack, walked down the hill to the stick and ranged the dead doe. 106 yards. By far my longest kill. I knew it was pretty far but had no idea it was that far.

My friend is working on this land turning it into a primo hunting land and you can see in the picture it was bare between me and the deer with no brush in the way and also no cover for me either.

Default HandCannon Coalition #1

Team: HandCannon Coalition
11-5-09
5:30 p.m.
Screven County, (private land)
TC Contender, .375 JDJ, 14 inch scoped barrel
225 Hornady SP / H4895 / CCI BR2 / 2205 MV
70 yd shot.
Doe, 107 lbs.
Summit Viper climber

Climbed a favorite gum tree on the SE corner of a food plot just inside some oaks right at 4:00 p.m. Was entertained by lotsa squirrel activity in my immediate vicinity for an hour. They were in the trees, jumping around, on the ground, chasing each other, making all sorts of normal racket. Just before 5:00 pm, I heard a squirrel getting irritated at something in the bottom/swampy/bedding area off to my right side. Sure enough, I start hearing crunchy footsteps coming my way. Saw several deer coming through the woods a minute later. Eased the hammer back and watched. I glimpsed 5 just inside the woods around 25 yds from me. No horns and they were not at all nervous. The two yearlings bounded into the food plot and started chowing down on the wheat/oats/rye/blue lupine (but not the Trophy Radishes??) mix I'd planted in late September. #3 doe and #4 doe followed. The largest doe waited a minute and then eased out. I watched as they fed at an angle away from me, thinking they might have a buck on their trail. Not a once did they look back from where they had come from. Gave it a few minutes, cranked my scope to 4 power and waited on the biggest doe to give a good shot angle. She was going from right to left, quartering away slight with her left leg forward when I dropped the hammer. Sight picture was centered behind her front leg inline with the opposite shoulder. At the shot, she jumped, did a 180 and ran back from where she'd come from. I could see the exit hole on her right side as she headed to the trees. Piled up just inside the woodline.
Bullet performance was excellent.

Got down, dragged her to my stand, took pics and texted Forkhorn to let him know we were finally on the board!
