A cold, wet front passed through at 4:30 am, and there was a light mist when he walked across the logging road at 7:50.  He was already across the road and heading into the woods when I shot.   Distance was 214 paces.
stand / horns
4' x 6' two man stand, on a 10' metal tower.
6 nice points, and two ring hangers.
view from stand This is the view from the front & right side windows.  This area is new-growth (7yrs) pine on timber company land.  The deer crossed from right to left in the top view, 50 yards or so beyond the feeder.  Oats & rye grass are planted near both feeders.  The acorn crop in the hardwoods was heavy this year, so very little corn or oats was eaten.  I have a tri-pod down near the hardwoods and a small a creek, but did not see anything there in spite of the acorns.

youth hunt
This was Christine's first hunt.  She had never fired a gun before.  After picking up her first duck, a Blue Wing Teal, she dropped the Browning Auto-5 Twenty to the bottom of the reservoir.  The gun was frantically cleaned while the Teal continued to dive into the decoys.  After the limits were filled, a big breakfast at the local greasy spoon topped off the perfect hunt.

Milton, Mike & Stephanie
1157 yards 1157 yards, on a Prairie Dog in the Texas Panhandle.  The rifle was the Remington 6mm Ackley Improved shown on the main page.  Shot was witnessed by Milton Fenley.   We went out the day before to place markers (bowling pins) at 1000yds plus, so as not to waste shots under the goal.  No, it was not a "one shot - one kill", but it is good for the "Club" record book anyway.
