I hunted WMA this morning, wasn't planning to shoot a Doe, but when 5 of them walk straight to me and are planning to walk under my tree, from directly DOWN wind?
The first 2 in the line smelled where I had been standing when I put my climber on the tree. All 5 got nervous right off. Shot the last one in the line and she dropped straight down ( brain shots tend to do that ) and the rest went nuts running around trying to figure out how to go in 4 directions at the same time.
Good job. You consistently take deer on WMA land.
I'd take a doe to eat any day over a buck. Nice shot! For those that get nervous, never have to worry about "buck fever" shooting a doe.

Scouting, scouting and more scouting.
Hunted Thursday morning and seen some Does, but decided to wait for a Buck. Hunted Friday morning and shot this one at 9:40 am. Saw 6 Does about 10 minutes after I shot.
My 44 Magnum carbine wanted to go hunting, so I hunted some Water Oaks back in some THICK cover.
