Thread: New Years Day Doe

    New Years Day Doe

    Yesterday morning saw me and my mate out first thing to try for a doe.

    As I ventured up a track at the side of a narrow strip of trees a doe suddenly stepped out onto the track about 80 yds from me but unfortunately it was skylined. I froze and watched her waiting to see which way she would go and fortunately she headed in my direction.

    I quickly got ready on the sticks as I could see her advancing through the trees. There was a rhodedendron bush between me and the doe . I expected her to appear right handed but she came out left handed of the bush , at 20 yards I gave her a whistle , she stopped gazing at me , crosshairs on neck and that was my first deer of 2011 in the bag at 10 am .
