  1. HI GUYS , HAVE TO TELL YOU ALL ABOUT THIS MESSED UP NIGHT TONIGHT, WENT OUT TO MY DADS TO HUNT A SWAMP STAND THAT GETS GOOD THIS TIME OF YEAR , COULD HERE LOTS OF DEER WALKING AROUNDIN THE THICKET , JUST ABOUT 5:OO MY NEPHEW SHOOTS INSIDE THE WOODS, HAD DEER CRASHING EVERYWERE SEEN ABOUT 10 DEER RUN OUT THE WEST END , NO BUCKS , THEN I HEARD ONE CRASHING TOWARD ME IN THE SWAMP, IT STOPPED OUT ABOUT 65 YARDS BROADSIDE, I LOOKED AT IN THE SCOPE (2 POWER ) SEEN NO ANTLERS LOOKED LIKE A GOOD SIZED DOE ,TOOK AIM AND HIT IT PERFECTLY , WHEN I GOT DOWN TO GO GET HER , SHE BOLTED ABOUT 20 YDS INTO SOME THICK BRUSH, UPON GOING INTO THE BRUSH A STICK PROCEEDED TO WHIP ME IN THE FACE AND FLING OFF MY BRAND NEW GLASSES I JUST GOT 2 DAYS AGO, INTO SOME 4 FT. HIGH GRASS, I LOOKED FOR THEM WITH OF COARSE NO LUCK, NOW I WALK UP TO MY DOE AND WHAT DO I SEE BUT 2 LITTLE SPIKES ABOUT 4" LONG , PUT IT THIS WAY EARS WERE BIGGER THAN THE SPIKES, SO TO SUM UP MY EVENING I LOST A 300 DOLLAR PAIR OF GLASSES, & MORE IMPORTANT USED UP MY BUCK TAG, SO TO SAY I AM A LITTLE DISSAPOINTED IS THE UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR, THE ONLY UP SIDE IS I WILL HAVE SOME GOOD EATING EVEN IF IT COST ME AS MUCH AS PRIME RIB , GOOD LUCK TO ALL YOU GUYS, IM OFF TO DUCK & GOOSE HUNTING NOW!!!
