Everything was going well yesterday until my neighbors grandson decided to start shooting squirrels with a 22 about 50 yards from me. I was none too pleased. Before that saw a doe and a small buck but heard one of the loudest grunts ever coming from around 100 yards away. I'll be out there early today to try and beat the great squirrel hunter to the woods lol

Congrats to the wife!

I was fortunate enough to dart a doe yesterday as well. Almost straight down shot(14yds, 30' up in a tree), took out her aorta. Ran 80yds in about 3 seconds. Sat in a tree in mom's back yard. Not so much hunting, as grocery shopping.

Congrats to her. Now when are you going to keep up your side of the bargain?

I sure hope not.
We also been finding a few on one of our farms in Dorchester. I've seen it happen before in the mid 90s in Queen Anne's county.

That's where my friend's farm is located, Dorchester County.

I usually find a few dead in the fields and this year I've found 8 dead in about 150 acres of corn. Thought if it were blue tongue they would be in or near water but these are far from water.

I'm not sure, but I think those deer my friend reported on where in fields, not near water.
