Well, I found some — that I didn’t remember. I have a strange memory. I’m not going to say it’s photographic, but I can look at a hero shot once and it’s almost a sure thing I will remember seeing it even if I don’t see it again for five years. Unfortunately, my memory about completing tasks is not quite as good. I will get an email, move it into my Hero Shots folder and think, “I’ll go check that out in a bit and post on my blog.” Then 11 months later…
Sorry about that, guys.
If you sent me shots last year and they didn’t get up, standby for a couple more days. I’m going to go back through my emails and see how many I missed. (Matt Vess — you are next!)
Anyway, these three shots are from Don Cloeter. He didn’t say what county these deer came from. Here’s the story Don provided:
“My son and I had a pretty good season this last fall. He thought we should send in a couple of our pics, so here they are.
Daniel’s was killed the last Saturday evening of general firearms season, in a clover field, all alone (he’s the young nice looking young man). He made a great shot with my old Marlin 35.
The last one, was shot the 30th of Dec., chasing a doe. I heard a load grunt, and some crashing on the next ridge, and thought it was my imagination. Fifteen to- 20 minutes later the same thing. Then I knew I wasn’t dreaming. Then minutes later hear they came.”
