Jonathan,

That was good to hear. You're fortunate to understand how lucky you are... to have your father around & and one you can do things with.  I, for one, never had that gift.

David, I used my Blackfeather. Nice buck Bill, hope you get a chance at him. He might be hard to draw on with them giant eyes he's got. He ought to have 360 degree vision.

Thank you everyone and Mr. David, Ive been more than lucky in life to have both of my parents and caring grandparents. I know not everyone is as lucky as I and I need to show my appreciation more. I truly am blessed.

I skipped out of work a few minutes early this evening to get an early start on my 3 day vacation.  I had a 3 point come in to about 10 yards and eat acorns for a while.  He moved off and I didn't see a thing until 0 dark thirty.  Suddenly I had deer all around me.  I picked out what I thought was a bit larger deer than the one standing under me and took the shot.  Deer ran everywhere and I really couldn't tell about my shot except that it felt good.  Since it was quitting time, I climbed down and packed up my gear.  I found blood immediately and my arrow was about 10 yards down the trail.  I had blood with bubbles so I thought it would be a short trail.  Sure enough, I found my deer about 50 yards out.  What luck, a button buck.  Between Brendan and I, that's 3 button bucks in two days.  I WILL be more careful from now on this season. However, as one famous Cool Springs Gang member once said, "this ain't a spectator sport"   :)    
My shot was perfect.  It skewered the heart and broke the front leg on the opposite side.  
Gotta get to bed so I can do it all over again tomorrow!

I posted this on Pow Wow last weekend.  Shot her Saturday morning as she came sneaking in behind me.  14 yard shot with the RER.  The hit was a little far forward but it took out the shoulder and both lungs.  Trail was fairly easy to follow.  I went back to the same spot this morning hoping for a buck, but ready to shoot anything.  I had lots of does close but nothing offered a shot I was comfortable with.

Well, I'm proud of ya.  What a great day! And with a Morrison even!  Who would have thunk it!!

Yesterday I passed on a button buck (approx 11 yards), a 3" spike (at approx 14 yards) and a young doe at 21 yards.   In short, I was waiting for either of the two biggins that I know haunt this area... but, they never showed. I can only guess they never got my invitation.

Sighhhhhhhhh.

Congratulations Danny!  Like Tom said, we all knew it wouldn't be long till you got the chance to show that mug of yours on here.  I'm sure you'll be back now that you've broken the ice for the year.

Allen, you're next.  I think we all have more faith in your ability than you do right now, but I'm sure you'll be on here doing wonders with photography very soon.  I've never seen someone make a 90 lb. doe look like a 200 lb. monster quite like you!   ;)   Can't wait to see that magic again!!
