Now that was a great hunt. Mid-40s at the Chap with on and off rain for two days. Deer were eating all our corn before the javis could get to it. There were a couple groups of hunters who had braved the drive from the DFW area. And only a couple of standbys showed up. We cut our hunt short and drove back to San Antonio the night of Feb. 13. I'm guessing whoever stayed to hunt Sunday the 14th had an interesting trip back home as it got western real quick.

The Savage 340C in .222 was my wife's grandfather's. Took down the javi at 27 yards. My eyes are getting too old for iron sights!
