Howdy, Yesterday Opening of Blackpowder Central n.c I Was Sitting 30ft High in My Climber On Gameland. Wind Was Blowing around 20 mph Or So. Around 9:40am I Just Happend To Turn My Head to my Left And See 2 Does Walking By Me At 40 Yards. (I Never Heard Them Coming) I Rasied My Muzzleloader And Had The CrossHairs On The Back of One Does By This Time i ranged Them At 60 Yards. Long Story Short, I Didnt Shoot, I Knew I Could Make A Clean Shot, But IT Was A Spine Shot, i I Didnt Feel Right About Shooting A Deer In The Spine. Butner-fall in (Durham, Wake, And Granville Counties) Recevie Some Major Hunting Pressure. I Heard 3 Shots Fired In And Around Me, But When I Let The 2 Does Walk I Didnt Hear A Single Shot, so I Feel Good That i may see the does Again. Did I Make The Right Call not to Shoot? Love To Hear What ya'll Think!! Thanks Goodluck And Stay Safe.
