Way to go steve! Looks like a nice one. Looking forward to the story.
I went to southeast ohio this morning and was surprised to see a little snow on the ground. I dropped down a steep hill and hunted a valley. The ground, leaves and snow was frozen and was extra crunchy. I got in my climber around 6:45. Around 9:45 I heard a loud crunching sound coming from the hill behind me. I turned to my left and saw a doe by herself coming down the hill toward me. With the loud crunching and snow on the ground she really stood out. She got on a trail and came about 8 yards from me. After verifying no buck was trailing her I took the shot. Hit her right where I wanted to. She ran about halfway back the hill and started walking. She got about 35 yards away and started staggering. She then fell forward and rolled down the hill. Took me about an hour to drag her up the hill I came down. Real big old nanny. I鈥檒l enter her tomorrow.
