      Charlie – 0
      Deer – still laughing

      I had chances early on for does and scraggly bucks, but I had seen a couple of nice bucks on the game cameras. I did get one chance at a nice buck at 20 yards about 4 days into the season. I was walking into the wind on the creek when I saw some nice antlers sticking out of some tall grass. I brought my Ruger SBH to full cock and sighted where I thought he would be when he stood. He had other ideas. He came out of there like a cock pheasant out of a weed patch and in one bound was behind a willow thicket. He emerged the other side and turned to go away from me, distance now 30 yards and opening fast. I decided not to fire as it was not a reasonably good chance of success. I did enjoy 7 beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Several days of western Kansas wind was a bit disgusting. I didn’t get a pheasant either. Never heard one crow in those 7 days. Been poor pheasant hunting there for about a decade now.

      Looking forward to next season.

      This one is a 6pt that weighed 125 lbs. I popped him with a Browning BAR in 30-06 with 150gn Corelokts at about 125 yds. The first shot was a broadside double lung that exited, he jumped and went to the other side of the lane and turned around and just stood there.  So I popped him through both lungs going the other way. Finally, he jumped off the lane and layed down.

      Congratulations Glen!
      Wish the deer in my neighborhood had been so accommodating. I was too slow to get off even one shot. That young buck should make good eating. The ole buck I got two years ago required a visit to the pressure cooker for anything but the tenderloin, LOL

      I crock potted a neck roast from the buck last weekend in camp with potatoes, carrots and onions. After a long stay in the pot you could mostly cut it with a fork.
