thurs. first hunt in the morning had a couple races ad 1 deer seen. 2nd hunt in the morning all hell broke loose. three dogs in the bush and all three took different deer. 6 differnt people saw deer but none had a chance to shoot except fo myself. i had a doe and fawn come out at about 80 yrds. took my first shot running but broadside. both deer dissapeared for a sec then topped the hill at 70 yrds. i yelled twice and the doe stopped. 1 shot. ran around knoll i was one to find fawn trying to get up. first shot had connected. missed first kill shot but got him the second. doe dressed at 129lbs. buck-fawn dressed at 72lbs.

friday nothing

last saturday: first hunt in the morning dogs brough a big doe by me first thing she stopped 40 yrds away and wathched dofs until they were about 50 yrds away. i then watched her jump on every small balsem tree she could. didn't fool the dogs though they chased her till they went out of hearing for me. second hunt nothing.
last hunt of the season: i volunteered to stay in camp and star cleaning up and get deer ready for skinning. they hunted what wew call the camp run. we actually have a watch about 100 yrds behind the camp. well i was puttering around when all of a sudden bang right behind the camp. 15 yr old jimmy b. shot his first deer!
best ending to a hunt that we coul ask for.


unfortunatly my camera got soaked afer falling int the back of troy's truck who's box was full of water but i'm getting prints from bob so i will scan them as soon as he gets them done. thanks for listening.
