I went to Eastern Kentucky to hunt with my wifes brother for opening day of muzzeloader. I spooked one when I was walking out on Saturday night but didn't get a shot. We went back this morning and nothing was coming my way. I decided to go walk around but didn't see anything. I was at the top of this big hill around 11:00am. I decided to walk down the path I saw one on the night before. I was walking really slow and I noticed some fur between two trees down in the gully. It was a bedded deer. I shot and he stood up and looked around and then went back and laid down. I reloaded laying on my belly not to be spotted. I was probably 75 yards above him on a ridge. I had a small pocket to place the shot. I shot again and he got up and looked around. I reloaded on my belly again and looked down the gully and couldn't see him. I stood up thinking he was probably gone when I spotted him between two trees. I shot and he flipped over and started kicking. I watched him a little while and he wasn't moving. I decided to walk down the hill and get my wifes brother and dad. They came and we went back to get him but he was gone. No blood, nothing. We decided he may have went down the gully further. He did and is rack was hooked around a tree. Lucky he didn't go to the bottom of the gully or we would have never got him out. It took all three of us and a lot of breaks to get him out. I learned that you have to aim low when you are shooting down at a deer. I wasn't used to hunting hills since I have only hunted northern Ohio. It was a day to remember. It should be nice mount. I will post a picture when i get them developed.
