I can't get to my normal hunting blind in the mud, so I've been hunting by looking out the kitchen window. I spotted a deer out back, so I grabbed the Optima and went to the door. I started easing the door open (creeeeek..click, click), and got it open far enough to step outside. The deer was further away, and I waited for a good broadside shot and then fired. The deer was about 100 yards away when I shot it (and I saw it hit), it ran about 30 yards to the left and then turned and ran about 30 yards straight towards me. It dropped maybe 25 feet from the ditch in the back, and as it ran up and dropped another deer took off running. I'm guessing it was the first one I'd spotted out the window, and the one I shot was actually another one that I hadn't seen. She was going into warp speed the last time I saw her. :hysterical:
I called up the ShawnCat, and he came over with his boys to do the guttin' and draggin' for me. :bowing: After I called him I went back there to see the deer, and it's a nice button buck. I finished doing the tele-check right as Shawn got here, so I could get the tag on it before they started cutting.
After they left, I cleaned and reloaded the rifle so I could get back to window seat. I love hunting over gut piles, because it always seems to pull in the curious deer, and sure enough about 4:00pm a buck came walking towards the gut pile. He stopped short though, and all I could see was his head sticking out from behind a Cedar tree and his legs just under the lower limbs. I didn't want to take a head shot, and at the angle he was I couldn't tell for sure if he had brow times. I wasn't positive he'd meet the antler restrictions (grrr grrrr) so I watched him walk away.

I'll post a few pics.
First is how he fell, with the exit wound facing up,
second is where I stepped past him and took a pic back towards the house (and you can see the brown of the deck where I shot from),
three is ShawnCat and his boys just starting
and the fourth pic is ShawnCat and me. (...and the deer). :wave:

Thanks again for the help Shawn. :2thumbsup:
