Sex of deer: doe 120 pounds

Details: Climbed on a crossing that I see deer on every morning. Right at shooting light I turned over my can call and deer came running in. In all there were 2 big does and four fawns. I watched them for about ten minutes to make sure a buck wasn't with them. I picked out the biggest one and put the crosshairs high on the shoulder and squeezed the trigger--DRT.
Big nanny! Congrats! Be sure Chad puts ya down 1 for the mature doe category!

The DNR regs state that a point has to be 1" to be counted.

If it good enough for them, it is good enough for me.

I'm seeing it as a spike.. maybe a 3. But that one point doesn't look like 1" to me. I'll go with the consensus and am not trying to nit-pick. Please don't take it as such.

Default #2

Team: #9

Date: 11-28-09

Time: 5:40pm private land

Weapon used: Tc contender 30/30

Ammo used: 160 gr. FTX LEVERevolution

Sex of deer: doe 110 pounds

Details: A friend of mine has family in for the holidays and her nephew wanted to experience deer hunting for the first time. So at about 3:30 we cralled into a pop up blind on the edge of a food plot. It was really slow until about 5:40 when this doe and two yearlings stepped out at about 70 yards. I told him to cover his ears and I steadied my pistol on the shooting sticks, took careful aim and squeezed one off. She went straight down. HIGH FIVES ALL OVER THE PLACE!!!!!!!

Default Big Doe Down #3

Team: #9

Date: 11-29-09

Time: 7:25am private land

Weapon used: TC contender 30/30

Ammo used: 160 gr. LEVERevolution

Sex of deer: doe 137 pounds

Details: I went back to the hardwood ridge that I killed my first doe on and got back in my climber. Only had to about 9:00 to hunt so I was hoping to see something early. At 7:25 four big does came up an old logging road. They were angling toward me. I picked out the biggest and steadied the crosshairs right in front of her shoulder and dropped the hammer. She ran maybe 20 yards and piled up. Can anyone say JERKY!!!!

Since no one else has objected, I'm ruling it as a spike and awarding 9 points.

Way to go Kirk!

Team: Operation Bad Medicine

Date: November 30th.

Time: 5:25pm

Weapon Used: S&W 629 Classic

Ammo Used: 220gr Hornady Leverevolution

Sex of Deer (# of points if buck): 2 does

Details about the hunt:

I went to my lil' honey hole where I got my last doe. It's not been hunted much, and with the pressure most of our places get, I figured it would be time to give it a try. With a front moving in, I guessed the deer would be up trying to fill their bellies.

At 5:20 or so, I looked to my right and saw a deer making it's way through the pines. I put the rifle scope on it, zoomed in and it was a big nanny... Perfect! I was wanting a buck, but with my cousin wanting meat, and me needing points, I figured "Why not?"

As I was putting the rifle down, I caught more movement,... another doe.. a yearling!

"A momma with yearling... probably not a buck in tow.. Come on in y'all!"

They then picked their heads up and looked behind them!!!

"Well, maybe there is something taking up the rear..."

So, I waited.. while the the nanny and yearling fed not 30 yards from me... Then I seen it.. another big body making it's way up through the pines towards my food plot!

I put the rifle on it, and another nanny doe with yearling...

Verifying all were does, it was time to break out the handgun. I put the rifle down, got my ear plugs in.. and waited for them to come out into the food plot.

The first nanny stepped out broadside at 20 yards.. I put the cross hairs on it's heart and squeezed one off.. She dropped and was diggin' dirt and gall berry bushes on her way out.. I looked to the right and the yearling was still standing there...

"More meat, and 10 more points!"

I cocked the hammer back.. found it's heart in the cross hairs and squeezed one more round off...

Boo-yow!

She dropped in the front and acted just like it's momma... diggin' dirt and gall berry bushes as it ran off.. As I put my handgun down and took out my ear plugs, I heard it take a dirt nap just out of sight in the pines.

I got down and went to where the yearling was... seen where it kicked the pine straw up and followed it... I found it 30 yards from where I shot it.

I drug it back to the food plot and went to where I shot the nanny.. I found where she kicked up dirt and pine straw and followed the trail... I found her about 40 yards into the planted pines.

Two down and plenty of meat for my cousins freezer!

Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me!

Date: 12-20-09

Time: 7:35 am

Weapon used: TC contender 30/30

Ammo used: 150 gr. Rem. core lokt

Sex of deer: doe 70 pounds private land

Details: Went back to my honey hole this morning and climbed up in my climber. The wind was stout and swirling so I didn't like my chances. At 7:35 I could hear the land owners Jack Russell coming toward me (his coller tag was jingling) and all of a sudden 2 deer bumped from in front of him. I practically yelled to get them to stop and this one was the unlucky one that did. Shot her right in the shoulder and she stumbled about 10 yards and fell over.

Team: Operation Bad Medicine

Date: December 21

Time: 5:33pm

Weapon Used: S&W 629 Classic

Ammo Used: 220gr Hornady Leverevolution

Sex of Deer (# of points if buck): Nanny doe

Details about the hunt:

Private land.

Took another big doe this evening!

Was hunting out of a box stand when out of an oak flat walked a yearling and it's mom. They were to my right, feeding to my left towards my food plot. The yearling was a small button head. Once crossing through an old gate and into my food plot, I decided it was time. At 40 yards they stopped in the food plot to feed. I got my ear plugs in, settled the cross hairs on the does vitals and squeezed one off.. Right into the heart and lungs! She ran about 60 yards and piled up into a gallberry thicket!


More meet for the freezer and 10 points on the board!

Thank you Lord for your blessings on me!
