Hunting stories?

I posted this in another thread last night, but it looks like it's dead.

>November 2023.
>Went hunting with my native co-worker on the Potawatomi Rez in N.E. Kansas.
>I'm Native myself, but I live off the Rez in city limits.
>Fricker hunts nearly 24/7.
>I was nervous hunting with him to begin with because he says people on the Rez don't give a shit about rules.
>But I went anyway.
>Went hunting for Coyote, he had his Rabbit caller ready.
>Dad always wanted to take me hunting but due to his felon status, he can't.
>Tried to go bow hunting with my dad but the police here are dicks.
>My co-worker hunts Deer, Rabbit, Squirrel, whatever.
>Whatever he sees he'll hunt, Crow included.
>My second hunt was his shortest, and my shortest hunt ever.
>I hunted with him prior (first time) and didn't get anything.
>This hunt though, didn't even last 10 minutes.
>Right after we left his pasture towards his deer stand, there was an 8-point buck 20 to 30 yards out.
>We both squatted down because the buck stared at us and didn't move.
>"Bro, raise your rifle, now, like right fricking now."
>Raised my Remington 700 LH 30-06 and shot it in the shoulder.
>I was using Winchester Ballistic Silvertips.
>The Polymer tipped 180-grain round went right through the shoulder like a hot knife through butter.
>The buck dropped instantly.

I'll remember this till the day I die. I was and am still so proud of this.

    >find first bullet clipped the lungs, second severed the spine
    I'm almost certain it never saw me, just heard the shot and picked the easiest direction to run.

      One of the towns I worked in the stewards of the land would sell you a deer out of season for a handle of vodka.

      When I was 12 my uncle would give me $1 for every squirrel, chipmunk, or rat I could shoot in his barn. Those were the days.

    I shot the legs off a pheasant but didn't down him. Always felt bad about that one. Yeah, that's about it.

    Thanks for taking me hunting grandpa. Very rare for eurostani children to experience and giving me a gun and teaching me to shot was highly illegal for him

    At some point I will get good enough to hit rabbits at 20+ m away. I am also interested in trying slingbows but not in my backyard.
