Story: "I had gotten a call the night before and it was one of my buddies who wanted me to take them hunting to kill a Doe. He just wanted some meat to make some jerky out of. So I told him i'd be by to get him at 5:15 in the morning. We got out there and got set up and about 6:45. There were 5 Doe that came out about 45 yards away and he was fixing to shoot one and I noticed they kept looking behind them so I told him to just wait a minute. The Doe moved on. He was mad and cussing me cause I didnt let him shoot a Doe. I said just be patient at about 8:35 he came troting out and he got about 30 yards away and he shot him right in the heart with a 30-30 using his open sights. After this he told me he was sorry for cussing me. I said no problem I promised you a deer and you got."
