Today’s hunt and subsequent harvest is a big milestone along my path as a hunter. Today I harvested my 3 rd deer but it was the first hunt that I did all by myself. I built this rifle myself in my garage. I secured permission to utilize a small parcel of land, scouted, planned, prepared a stand, and gathered materials to allow me to process the meat. When the time came a single perfectly placed round resulted in a clean immediate death, fell right where she stood. This harvest did not happen in a vacuum. Many people either taught, encouraged, mentored, answered questions, and some even took me hunting with them. I even took and class with @kyfishwildlife on deer hunting. Next goal is a harvest with my bow. I have 3 more opportunities to hunt the gun season then I switch back to my bow.
