These 2 deer were killed from the same stand 200 yds behind my house, 2 weeks apart. 52 and 56 yards. One with Matrix 380 and other with Matrix 405. Each with a Zombie and an FOC head. So, the night before gun season, I'm now tagless(Friday nite 11/14/2014). Story on does kill with light 45 cal load is on the smokeless board. Life is good here in Arkansas. Being only 2 miles from MO allowed another 9-pt to be harvested - can use either state's license if the deer is killed between the levies of the St Francis River which separates AR from MO. So 3 bucks, 1 doe and no tags left. Life is good!!
Glad to hear you’ve been blessed with another successful deer season. As time passes for some of us we have health issues to deal with and hope we have a few more hunts in us to experience the excitement that we have felt throughout our lifetime. Hope you also have many more hunts to enjoy and share with us a continued good life.
ET, Thank you. I've been blessed with good health (>6 years older than you). I , likewise, hope you have many more years of hunting also. However, if we ever get mad at God, it'll likely be at a Him for allowing us to stay down here for so long!
