Extended Shotgun 2011

We put on some drives during doe season for the first time in a long time this past January. I am usually not into shooting does but we had a few hunters that were new to the sport and wanted to give them some shot opportunities. A few of us did have the foresight to purchase buck tags and it ended up paying off.

Bill killed this pal-mated 8 pointer on an evening drive January 8th 2011. He dropped it with one shot using 3" 00 buckshot in his Franchi Automatic. The deer weighed in at the checkstation 140 lbs.

Steve scored the other buck kill, the three pointer pictured above.

All in all we killed 2 bucks and seven does. It was nice having the snow to hunt in for a change.
