Second deer of afternoon: After the first harvest, I walked back to the large clover field and setup with an hour or so left to hunt.  I saw 17 total deer for the afternoon but no bucks.  I harvested the doe shown above right at dark.  She was 260 yards away and I had a good prone position.  She never took a step.

First deer of afternoon: What an exciting afternoon!  I arrived at the property and immediately started to see deer.  I eased down to the lower side of the property and saw two deer step out of the pines onto a long strip of clover.  I took off my fanny pack and crawled as far as possible with some cover between the deer and I.  I shot the deer with the rangefinder and it was 230 yards.  I laid down to shoot in the prone position - my favorite and most accurate shooting position.  I used the fanny pack as a rest but it was to low - I could not see over the rise.  I removed the shooting sticks from the pack and setup to shoot from a sitting position.  It was a long shot for that position for me.  I was on the deer and took a deep breath, held it and fired.  The deer never took a step.  That 7-mag sendero is a sweet shooter!
