Here's a quick update from the field. I only had a day off between trips and I promised Cole I'd take him hunting as much as humanly possible so we slipped in a speedy pronghorn hunt.
Friday evening after school we got out and actually spotted this buck, but he headed the opposite direction and with the sun setting there was no time for a stalk. I spotted some water nearby and figured he might return at sunrise.
Sure enough we planted ourselves above the water and at sunrise he returned with a couple of does. Cole and I made a big loop and ended up right above them. For those of you who think I crawl too much, guess what, I crawled again and it was a good thing.
The pronghorns were also going to the top of the ridge and spotted us slithering through the grass. Fortunately they didn't recognize the danger and Cole slipped up beside me to put this TC Icon to work. The Hornady Superformance ammo (www.hornady.com) tipped the buck over in his tracks. Gotta love the .30 TC!
It was Cole's second pronghorn for 2010 and the next morning I didn't feel half as bad about hitting the road again. We'll have one more chance to hunt deer together before the madness of the whitetail rut begins and I won't see my bed for more than 30 days.
Now isn't this better than a Playstation?
