    Bambi (Button Buck) - Meat for Dad... 336W 1.5-4.5 Bushnell Elite 3200 FireFly

    Another kill with the 336W..

    I did not post picks of this one yet. Head on shot (again) in ground blind @ 136 steps.

    Winchester 150 grain FN PP does it again. Bang flop. That is 2 this year with that bullet. I am getting loyal to it.



    I know he is small, but dad doesn't get out anymore. He needed some Christmas deer.

    VERY nice shooting there Jeremy!! My very first deer and a few more have had a severe case of ground shrinkage once I walked up to them.

    It did shrink some for sure. I wouldn't have shot this deer, but I had a request from the old man.

    "You know, Jeremy. I sure hadn't had me some tender deer meat in a long time", said The Old Man. So I popped him.

    Nutin wrong with that Jeremy. Some folks would not have shot that little one, but circumstances heavily dictate what we do most of the time.

    I'm apparently not one of them folks. I'ld have shot him in a heartbeat if I wanted to. I've said it before, I don't go deer hunting to make a friend, I go hunting with my friends to kill critters. Too many people(read hunters) these days think that killing animals is something to be sorry about. Not me I celebrate every kill big or small. It doesn't matter if its a small deer, a rabbit or any other game. I'm happy for the success, and the addition to the game bag makes life and the experience that much richer. Don't get me wrong, I've passed on a lot of legal game over the years. Sometimes I was waiting for a bigger buck or doe or sometimes I just didn't need more tender meat and was purely, dare I say, trophy hunting. Just remember this the younger ones are always easier to drag and chew.

    Nice shot by the way! I miss deer season already and it's only been 72 hours. Go kill another one for me.

    Happy Holidays.
    Vince.

    Agree 100% if it is legal wild game. It doesn't matter what size at all. One of these days I am gonna shoot one of these 20# wild hawgs. Most likely won't end up with more than 3-4 bites of meat but what the heck.

    The small ones eat the best I have shot many that size for the stewpot. I get requests from old folks to bring them one like that and I do. Congrats.

    I too have shot many a yearling for meat. They eat good.

    The Old Man can eat good for a while now.

    Good shootin'!

    If I, for one, kill a yearling in November because I get trigger happy, I bet beotched and screamed at for it. If I kill it 3 days before the season ends, I'm on good terms. Yeah, I'm a trophy hunter but when it comes to the last few days of deer season, anything with four legs, white fluffy tail and big ears is fair game.
