The Bad
Nov 4, 2005  I missed! I took a slight quartering to me shot with my 1792
Contract rifle at 4:30 pm on what looked like a good sized Doe, at 60 yards.
Not sure what happened but I must have simply shot over it. A search the
following morning turned up nothing.
Dec 29, 2006  I missed! I had a broadside shot at roughly 22 yards with my
1792 Contract rifle at 4:45 on a nice Doe. A search that night and the
following morning turned up nothing, no blood, no sign at all. All I can figure
is I didn't have all of the front sight in the rear and ended up shooting under
her. It would have been nice to end the tribute with one more deer but it just
didn't work out that way.
