    I know what you mean. My shot was up close, so I probably hit a little high in all probability considering the rainbow trajectory.

    My deer crossed over property lines too. I had permission to look where I was searching, but not to go further than I did because it turned into state animal preserve at that point.

    And had I been seen dragging my deer from there, even though I didn't shoot it there, we both know how that would have ended.

    I hate that it didn't work out, for either of us that time. And as much as it lays on my mind, I will be better because of it in the end.

    Thanksgiving Back home from Bama family all converged there. I had said I would take a doe while home if had the chance and hopefully do it with the flintlock smoothbore.
    Well things went slightly different than planned, on way to my old stand I spied about 4" diameter pine oozing fresh rub very fresh. So I just plopped down about 40 yds down the trail kinda in a brush pile on ground. I waited a full hour then went full crazy loud on the rattle bag, like excessive obnoxious about 3 minutes solid, then got real still and real aware. Maybe 5 minutes and here came 2 bucks a young fork first then this 10. I'm praying for clean ignition and true aim, not alot of time behind this no sight fowling piece yet, click-BOOM lots smoke can't see for 10 seconds. The lead slug flew true DOA, no doe this trip and the couple lazy folks who chose to stay in bed were a little sideways havin to come drag for ole cripple knee 1110191614.jpg :nutkick:
