Still got mine. Theres still a big 10 in my area. My buddy seen him from the back deck couple days ago, running a doe. Just a hundred yards or so from my stand. All I'm seeing is does, and tons of them. I've left the gun at home and still bow hunting. First year with a bow ans I'm determined. I've learned many lessons already. Only got to draw on one doe and didn't get a shot. Had one in range at least 12 times, but not happened yet.

GOt my OH and KY tags still, but no worries, still have time to hunt.
Get to start leaving the orange at home in a couple of days too.
I'm no longer picky, sorry if I hunt near you, but if I can kill it from here on out, I'm going to try

Still have mine as well. If I can't put my tag on one by the late ML season, I will just kill another doe for the freezer.

Still have mine. Quit hunting opening morning after gut shooting a doe & then missing a monster of a buck at close range (less than 50 yards). 3 times nonetheless. Darned thing just stood there broadside & laughed at me!

Decided if I was that bad of a shot, I didn't need to be hunting! It was NOT a pleasant day. I was upset with myself & my family was giving me he** over my "bad shooting." You've gotta realize... shooting is something I've **always** had a nack for. When I was a little kid, I was outshooting my brother's teenage friends. My eyes have played heck with shooting over the years, but if I can see it, I can by God hit it. Until this opening morning... When I got home, I hung up my hunter orange & told 'em that was it. I was done. It was up to them to fill the freezers from now on because I respect the animals too much to go out after them if I can't get the job done quickly & with a minimum of suffering.

Then my husband & went out to the range last night. At first, I thought I was even more justified in calling it quits. My shots were all over the target - at least the ones that actually hit it were. Ranging from inches to feet apart & not grouping at all. After 6 shots, I went to the car... I was done in. Complete emotional meltdown. That's when my husband took a couple of shots (da**ed near blacking his eye in the process since I had my rifle cut down to fit 5'3" and he's 6'4") and they were all over too. He started boresighting it & he'd line it up and before he could even shoot, the "x" would float anywhere from 3" to over a foot off center. Both horizontally and vertically. Then he started lightly tapping on the rifle and then the scope. Every tap caused the "x" to move somewhere else. It was locked onto the rifle tight but **something** inside of it must have given away over time and wsa letting the "x" float....

He came over & explained what he'd found & talked me into taking a few shots with his deer rifle (and his scope). It was a pain in the butt because I have to seriously stretch to reach the trigger & have to sight thru the scope from close to 6" away but every shot was within 2" of center at 100 yards! IT WASN'T ME - IT WAS THE FRIGGIN' SCOPE!!!!!!!!

That doesn't help with the buck I missed opening morning or the doe we couldn't find BUT.... I'll be back next year. We've got to go buy me a new scope this evening (or this weekend if I don't find what I want local). I like my scopes to be adjustable 3-9x40 (3-9x32 is okay too) and am leaning towards one of the lower end Leupolds. Any other suggestions?
