Not much of a rack, but a nice spike. The joy of it was that it was my grandson’s first deer. He is 14. We were sitting side by side in a blind at the edge of a field near Hancock, Maryland. It was about 28° with no wind and about 7:00 am this buck and a doe came by. They disappeared but about an hour later the buck came out about 70 yards away. He has a Remington model 700 .243 with 100 grains and a 3x9 scope. The Saturday before he had missed a small six. I was whispering to him like one of those guides you see on the outdoor channel on tv. He said, “I think I’ll take a shot.” We have those shooting sticks to help steady the rifle. With one shot he dropped it with a spine shot.
I have shot a pile of deer in my years. But this was one of my happiest moments in all the years I have hunted deer. That would be 55.

So for the 4th time in the 25 years we've lived here, a grouse flew into the South side of the house and broke his neck yesterday. It was also the 4th dinner of delicious grouse. I dressed out the breasts, cut them into strips, rolled 'em in flour egg and panko crumbs and fried them crispy. Not quite road kill but close~

Whip was pissed that I went hunting without him!
