Default Missouri Venison in the Cold Locker

A wonderful day of hunting today out here in Missouri. This year has been extremely discouraging. Usually we are seeing literally hundreds of deer in the week with lots of nice bucks. This year we are seeing nearly nothing. Some of the hunters in camp have not seen a deer! In Missouri you can only shoot an 8 point buck or better. So it's hard as you need to count points before you can shoot. Tonight is my last day of hunting. Went to church this AM and didn't get into the woods until late afternoon. Actually took my Ipad and a HotSpot to my stand to watch the Patriots dominate the Raiders! While in my stand I had three bucks wander by. I let the first one pass as I said I'd leave it for my hunting buddy who hasn't seen anything. The next one was a bit far away and I could clearly see if it was 8 points. The last one showed up 15 minutes to no hunting time. I photographed it a dozen times as I didn't think it had the correct number of points. The final photograph with a telephoto lens confirmed it was indeed 8 points....By now it was some 127 yards away and moving into the woods. Now or never...One shot with a 270 Winchester and venison is in the freezer!

Here he is just before I decided he was good enough to take....Last day deer!

nice buck Roy. But a 270? I thought you'd have some fancy 38-55 or something you resurrected from the grave on stand with you.

I could barely see the crosshairs in the scope, never mind iron sights on my Sharps rifle! Glad a I had modern glass with me at that time of day. 15 minutes before end of shooting... and on the last day!
