<br />
Conditions were not ideal…. something caught my eye about 100 yards into my walk.<br />
<br />
It was the face of a doe peering at me from behind a prickly pear cluster… I stopped and slowly removed the rifle from my shoulder… Before I could level the muzzle of my rifle, I noticed the back end of another deer extending from the other side of the cactus. It was a motionless buck.<br />
<br />
I could see it’s antlers between the cactus pads.</span><br /></div><br />That’s some literary hunting.<br /><br />
