    All I seen so far here in Scott Co is a few snow flakes. It sure seems like a good evening

    Im told taking a deer in snowy conditions is kind of special looking.

    Landed at the airport in Louisville at 2:30 and in my blind at 4:00. Just a tad cooler here than the 86 degrees in Florida 2 days ago but I’m glad to be back in the deer woods. My wife not so much! Great calm cold afternoon with a front headed this way.

    The smallest doe you ever saw tempted me. I confirmed it was a fawn and not my pessimism before deciding not to bust a cap. A young buck came out hot on her path then a button buck. All 3 came back and spend 10 minutes under my stand before finally retreating to the thick stuff. Fat does are scarce...

    . CVA Optima V2 150gr. Triple 7 and TC shockwaves or Hornady 250 grain bullet. Used to use the green powerbelts. The accuracy was great but never could get a pass through.

    Couldn't hunt morning had to get my splitter and tractor out of the woods. Splitter tongue broke the other day hauling it out, was bout 1/3 way out when it broke. Next morning I went to get it out with the tractor, something hit the valve stem on the right front tire of the tractor and made my day even worse! :) Had to walk almost 2 miles home. That sucked but oh well. Got the tire off and into the Polaris, damn either I'm weak or that thing was super heavy. Ended up winching it in! :) Smorning I put the tire back on, ran to the splitter, chained it to the bucket and carried it home.

    Tonite, sat alfalfa field. Bout 5:15 could hear a deer walking, had that buck walk sound to it. Couldn't find it in binos to save my life. Then it blew, couldn't have smelled or seen me don't know what that was bout. Anyhow it flipped it's tail and I could see horn. Then it walked over the hill and I lost it. But I could hear it walk all the way to my back field. Where I was gonna set but chose not to. :rolleyes: Looked like it was a descent buck but couldn't be sure.

    2 does at 5. Shot the larger one, but think I got her liver. No mule kick, and she ran off and did not crash that I could hear, but went down a grass strip. Good blood on the arrow and about 10 yards, bright, not dark. Then it started snowing like hell and couldn’t find anything. Going back in the morning to grid search.

    My short story is. I grid searched the entire property for 4 hours. Nary a sign. I either shot her through the brisket, or she ran well of property before laying down and dying. Pretty disgusted with myself. Shot was little longer than I though, 25 yards vs 20, but should have calmed down and made a better shot. Thinking I'm hanging it up for the year, and starting fresh in September.
