Tonight I was blessed with this little doe on an extra special day, my grandfathers birthday.

My grandpa was an avid outdoorsman, a WWII veteran, and a family man. I spent a few times out with him fishing and camping but he passed away before I was old enough to hunt. The outdoor lifestyle was passed on through my mom, who made sure I fished, camped and hunted. Bless her for that!

My grandfather had always promised me to go hunting, so 8 years after he passed and I could hunt on my own, I decided to dedicate every Dec 27th to his memory and that promise.

It's taken 12yrs to harvest a deer on his birthday, not that it matters because every year has been special to me even with out a kill. This one is for you gramps!!!!!

I've heard it said that Christianity is a crutch. To me, it's a walking stick to use on the path of life.

Thanks for letting me borrow it!!! [campfire] I forgot to mention I was using a 56inch St.Joe recurve 58@28. They are REAL smooth for a short recurve.

Here is the story:

The doe came out into a CRP field at 4:40pm, all alone. I watched for a couple minutes and grunted on my Outdoor Success Call Zall. She ignored me so I took the call apart and bit down on the fawn setting then gave a good loud blast. She was 200yds away and it was windy, I had to get that sound out there.

She heard my bleat and came running in fast to 25yds and I hit the regular grunt to slow her down. She stopped at 5yds, never knew I was there. I drew my 58# St. Joe River recurve and sent a Magnus 125 grain 2blade right where I was looking. She died in less than 14 seconds, it was amazing.
