Story: I was sitting behind a hay roll at the edge of a field. I had stood up to move my legs in an attempt to get some warmth in them when, while scanning the tree-line, I noticed a buck staring back at me which had come up from a ditch which runs along the tree-line. I froze and watched him make his way out into the field. Unfortunately, I had layed my gun on top of the hay roll. The buck would take a few steps then stop to look at me, but each time he looked away I reached a little more for my rifle. Finally, I had my rifle in my hand, threw the scope up on him and fired. I estimate he was between 40 and 50 yards from me when I took the shot.
