I just have to tell on myself, and will probably regret it. I was out deer hunting today and have a tag I want to fill so a fat doe would be nice. I am out with my T/C Hawken with a roundball. Walking into the woods I first encounter 2 does at about 15 yards, and I am kneeling in the open. T/C have got to have the noisiest locks of anyone. So that blows that as I wasn't prepared. Upon returning out a I hear something running, so this nimrod gets prepare this time and put a cap on and hammer back. Doe shows up perfect broadside at about 20 yards with 2 smaller does. I got this in the bag! Pull up and pull trigger and it doesn't move. CRAP! What the _____! Hammer is back. Ahhhh! Set trigger. pull it and she still doesnt know I am around. Bead down on her and fill the air with sulfer. She standing there looking at me like what is that? She runs (walks more like it to insult me more)about 20 yards and turn around and look back and I can tell she ain't hit. I am beside myself! Finally see thou problem!!! Them trees sprout up very quick. A 1" tree about 20 feet tall was toothpicks at about 5 1/2 feet up about 10 yards from me and it was still standing.
I believe my T/C shoot curve balls. God I did not see that tree there. Still have a tag.
