Story: "I had just come home from a long day of Christmas festivities. There was about 2 hours of day light left so I decided to go to the woods. On my way to the stand I stopped and over looked a crop field. I hadn't been in the field 2 minutes when I saw a buck trot out of a fence row into the field. I quickly sat down, rested my gun on my knee, lead the deer and squeezed the trigger. He ran about fifteen yards and crashed. I guessed it to be about 200 yards at most, but the range finder said 292 yards. So, not only was I pleased with a short successful hunt, but with the shot I made to acheive it."
