The work schedule has had me working everyday since I can't remember when, so I had to call in sick just to get out in the woods. Luckily the boss is cool and said he is looking for some jerky soon.

I was undecided where I would go, so I brought both the tree stand and the ground blind and I ended up on the south side of the place I was hunting, in the blind near a single trail that proved to be surprisingly very active.

It didn't take long for the doe to step out in the small clearing, and stopped when I bleated at her. Boom, and down she went. Dead right there to the Ruger Super Redhawk stoked with Underwood 340gr. +P+ Hard Cast 44 mag loads.

Within minutes, the small buck trailing her, walked right up to her and stood there looking at her, providing a perfect broadside shot at 40 yards. Boom, and down he went. Dead right there as well.

So, after a long 20 minutes in the blind, I was tagged out for the day.

Looks like the boss is going to get some jerky after all.

Well done! Congrats!

Congratulations on a successful hunt.

I did about the same thing two or three years ago with my 480 SRH. Buck chasing a doe. Got them both.

Thanks for all the kind replies.

I sat all day yesterday in the freezing rain and didn't even see a deer.

Some days work out great, and others, not so much. So goes handgun hunting.

That was last Monday for me. Didn?t see a single deer...

I know what you mean. I hunted six days last week to only shoot one mature doe with my 44 mag contender. Story coming later when I have time.
