    After passing up a number of bucks at the beginning of the year and having some close calls the past week, or so, I finally a decent buck (for my area) to stand still, in the clear. First deer I've killed in 2 years, and I avg 1-2 days per week during TN's m/l and rifle seasons. I hit the buck farther back than I wanted, destroying the Liver. Worse thing was waiting for a friend to come and track & drag for me. I'm about to the point of quitting hunting alone. My hunting buddy lives 1.5 hours away and he can only hunt Fridays and Saturdays, so we hunt together if its not raining hard. To get to my box blind where I killed this buck requires me getting my wheelchair in/out of my truck to open and close the cattle gate. Getting to be a lot of work for this 59year old, but I'm thankful that I have the health and strength to pursue my passion. Thank you for putting up with my ranting and whining from time-to-time.

    165gr Hornady Superformance GMX
