Went up to the northwest part of the state to hunt. we had 3 buck tags to fill and we filled 2. my dad shot a nice goat. about 13 inches tall with 5 inch cutters on each side. He made a decent shot at 200 yds then we chased him over the hill and he made a perfect shot to put him down. My dad's friend shot the other buck. he was pretty small but it was the last day and he was coming straight to us down a trail at about 120 yds i'd say. He made a terric clean kill shot.
I, on the other hand.....missed 4 bucks on sunday alone. i have no idea why and i don't wanna debate why i missed because i've already heard twenty different theories. Why i missed isn't the point, the point is that i made 3 perfect stalks on 3 different bucks. I got to within 200 yards of all 3 bucks. all were standing broadside. The wind was perfect...i had stalked, and crawled to within range of them. I took a dead rest....and i missed....all 3 bucks. I missed with my rifle and my dad's rifle both. I was extremely bummed out because one of those bucks was a monster. But i have to remind myself that it happens to everyone at some point or another and i can't let it get me down. which is why i'm going out again on saturday to try to get redemption. After i gain some confidence at the shooting range on friday.
