Our draw entry mule deer season started here in Sask on November 1. High winds were present that day but my youngest daughter and I managed to spot a few decent deer. Friday again gave us some wicked weather. Rain, wind, fog (and fog and wind at the same time, go figure) followed by more winds and snow. This morning we had a few inches of fresh snow but more fog again. My daughter and I went on a good stalk but lost the location of the deer in the fog. My youngest son decided to join us later in the morning and the three of us, looking like walking pumpkins (blaze orange), set out on a stalk, which led to another stalk which led to another stalk. Thank goodness for Aleve! Each stalk was on a different set of deer but each stalk put us farther from the truck as well. Finally, we came within range of the deer we were after and we tried to get my daughter set up for the shot. However, our buck had other ideas and took off with his buddy. They were crossing back and forth and it was tricky to stay on our buck. I was tracking the deer in my scope and waiting for my daughter to take the shot but he was nearly out of sight and I did not want this buck to get away so I squeezed a shot with my Kimber in 280 Ackley Improved. I heard the "whump" and he went down instantly. He did not get smaller as we walked up to him. We later ranged the shot at 222 yards. We were all thrilled and I am very grateful to be able to share this moment with two of my children.
