    Well, I shot another deer...thought I hit it hard, it's bleeding like a stuck pig....I trailed the blood into the woods...eventually found the deer hiding next to an old junk car...and it took off like a scalded dog. So I'm going to have a beer and watch the KY-Louisville game, then go out and try to find it. Hope it stiffens up and cooperates.:rolleyes: Looks like another late nite for chronically sleep-deprived Walnut...:rolleyes:

    They were flying and running here.

    Started the day on the Little Choptank with a brace of geese....

    Even collected another band. (This is the third band we've taken in the past 8 days)

    Then it was back to Centreville to trim another fat Doe out of a herd of 10 that came down through the woods.

    .....all in all, it was an exceptional day.

    Well, I eventually found my deer. I had to slit its throat. I started dragging it out of the woods, and it kicked the crap out of me, so I had to let it lay there for a while before dragging it again. Now it's gutted and hanging from a tree next to the driveway.

    All in all, I guess life's pretty good.;)

    The "blackpowder backup" was leaning against the wall in the kitchen. I expected to find that deer dead as a stone. Sometimes a deer is just tough. I couldn't have survived a hit like that.
