I didn't get a thing either but it's because I didn't get a chance to go. I've been so dog gone busy I can't see straight.

Aviator don't feel bad, it could be worse.

Although I did shoot 2 does with my Excalibur last fall, I lost the first 2 deer I shot at. The kicker was, they were both bucks. My confidence was pretty low after we searched for the second one for about 2 days. I took what some people would call a questionable shot. He was facing directly at me at about 15 yards. He didn't offer me a broadside and I was gonna let him come right to me and then spine him. He stopped at 15-18 yards and looked right up at me. I smacked him right in the chest. There was so much blood at first I thought "no problem". Long story short, we lost him. Although I got some for the freezer, it came at a price.

Regards,

Jay

I got two: one with the car and the other with the truck.

PS: A 2500 diesel truck is a bit overkill for hunting deer. Tends to make a mess of the meat. I'd suggest trying a mid-80's Toyota pickup or maybe an old AMC Eagle. Some may argue that a Miata is all you need if you are a skilled driver...
