Default Proud dad time with LDPs

Slow&Steady and I put our daughters on the same draw apps and they had some amazing luck and drew in all three youth gun deer categories.

My daughter was unable to connect on her chance at Daughtrey and we never saw a deer at the Chap antlerless/spike hunt.

Last weekend was a new hunt, this time at Colorado Bend SP.

Even though she almost got the shakes, from spotty internet service and not buck fever, she was able to connect on our first sit and tag her first doe.

This doe was 90 pounds live weight and was aged at 7+. She fell to the 300 AAC 120 grain Barnes Tac-TX round that was perfectly placed and covered only about 55 yards before crashing.


And a grip and grin LDP

Default Proud dad time with LDPs

Sunday morning we didn't see any deer and moved locations.

This time the 300 AAC did a good job on a poorer shot. It entered behind the last near side rib and exited just a couple of inches to the rear of the offside front shoulder.

The liver and single lung hit made for a more difficult track than we'd all like, but in the end I got a tailgate pic instead of the more traditional LDP of this 86# 3 1/2 year old doe.

We didn't see any bucks, but now she's got a bit of blood lust and is itching to get another chance at a buck.

She liked it so much she wants me to take her back in the spring to ride/hike some of the trails and see the falls.

She's never tent camped before these trips and I think she's actually kind of enjoying that part of it now. Plus of course all the windshield time and blind time we've gotten. It's been great to spend all this time together.
