I'm Getting Closer!
« on: October 02, 2009, 05:36:24 PM »
Stopped off at my favorite watering hole last night after work and had my pint of Guinness for the week.

Talked football, baseball, hunting, guns, work and how the world sucks right now.....

Hop in the Ranger and head for home....

Middle of the 'burb's NEVER seen a deer anywhere in the area and.....

Yep....

One runs out in front of me and I miss it by only inches I'm sure...

I sit there cussing and happy I don't have an insurance claim to settle...

I was doing about 25 mph when I saw her and was probably down to about 15 or 12 when she ran out in front of me.....

Still fast enough to mess up my grill, if nothing else....

Stupid doe, runs through someones yard and vanishes in some small woods about a block from my place!!!

Is this a good sign or bad?

This is the last weekend before black powder season get's here and it looks like now I'll be heading out in the morning.

Maybe I'll hit one on the way down or back! :idiot2 :crazy2 :uglystupid2
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

Yep, you're getting closer. O0  Instead of missing them by feet, it's inches now.  Pretty soon, if you keep practicing, you might connect. O0 ;D

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Haha I had the same thing happen to me the other night too but I was doing 55.  I do see deer quite often on that road though.  I'm glad I didn't hit it because I can't afford to fix my car seeing how I just have plpd.

Trust me, it takes practice to get your lead down correctly. Gauging the best impact point on the road when spotting an oncoming running deer takes practice.  :wink: :roll: ;D

I'm glad you missed the critter, bo. As we both know, a lousy deer isn't worth the damage.  :tickedoff Unless it's a government vehicle, that is.  :wink: :roll: ;D
