I haven’t posted many outgoing links, but I thought Jackson Lander’s latest post, The Gully Doe, was worth sharing. As you may recall from an earlier post, Jackson Lander’s book taught me a lot about deer hunting and I was partially inspired to start TNJ by reading his blog.
An excellent passage:
The doe was about 130 yards away. She was standing almost broadside, quartering slightly towards me. Because she was within fifty yards of the property line I decided that I had better try for a spine shot in order to avoid any sort of legal problems with retrieving my deer. I didn’t want her taking a single step before dying. The crosshairs centered right above and slightly behind the shoulder.
