I really had my doubts if I was going to be able to deer hunt this year. Got Covid on Nov 2 and took 21 days for me to get over it. Iím blessed though as I had low grade fever and cough. I went to the range with two Contenders, 357 Max and 445 SM. I really wanted to use the 445 this year but that didnít happen. Do believe the Burris
2.5 X 7 took a crap. It shot high and low and the settled down to 4 inches low and elevation adjustment does nothing.
I hunted sun up to sun down last Saturday and saw nothing. Sunday got in tree stand around 2 PM, overlooking a food plot. 5:05 PM a deer comes out of woods into the food plot 70 yds from me. At the shot it takes off running UP HILL!!!! First time I have ever seen a deer run up hill after being shot! Found it 40 yards from where I shot it. Turns out it was a button buck. Bullet went through right front shoulder and I found the bullet under the hide on the other side.
It felt so good getting out in the woods after being in the house so long.
