    Hunting in a stand in a tree I settled on a few years ago. It was my first trip to that tree this year. It was a beautiful evening, as it has been the last several days, I slipped down a dry creek bed and got settled in around 5:45. It was very quiet except for the occasional thrashing of leaves as a squirrel jumped from tree to tree knocking a few acorns down as he went. I caught a flash of movement through the leaves and saw a doe slipping to me in a canopy of undergrowth. I first spotted her from less than 20 yards. It didn't take long from there. She took a few more steps and turned broadside, stopping just a few yards from my tree. I had come to full draw as she had just passed the last tree. I settled my 20 yard pin a little low and released. As she took her first step I saw where the Rage had hit her and knew it was good. She ran about 70 yards and fell, still in sight.

    Congratulation on doe number 2 brother. Thanks for taking the time to describe the scene and put us in the tree beside you. You got to love the squirrels that work with you and not against you and start barking! This cool weather is going to have the bucks showing their heads soon enough!
