Sitting in the shooting shack opening morning. At 8 am this guy comes walking in. Well I didn’t make the best shot. We had blood. So we tracked. The deer did a big circle on us. Ended up back on the property it came from. I felt sick to my stomach. Seeing how I didn’t have permission to access this land. I waited until dark. I knew there were people out there. Finally I get a chance to talk to one of the gentleman. They had seen the deer, knew where it was. They offered to take me back to retrieve my prize. Thank goodness there are still decent people on this world.
