    Got my deer

    opener day, cold and windy. About 1030 , nice 3 point strolls out and boom! Took a little tracking to find it , but not too bad. I am happy with the performance of the new Barnes x bullets. Anyway, great day for me. Fresh venison in the freezer.

    Congrats , dude!
    I missed opener with my Pops due to financial woes (I burnt my truck to the rims).
    Ask me about that one day!

    Good result Rocky

    Buck opener here is not until first Monday after Thanksgiving. Darn it tho - saw a smart lil' 4 point comin' back yesterday late afternoon - just sauntered across roadway!

    Hoping the snow will hold off a bit so I can get out one or two days - that'll be with SHR Casull most likely. Can't be bothered toting rifle these days!
