Good luck to all you "able-bodied" folks - I am missing this season with this damned ankle.

Saw 11 or 12 total yesterday and closed the deal on a fat doe 166# about 15 min before legal ending hrs.
stepped it off today 58 yards in a open bean field . I usually never take that distance of a shot because its usually unethical to do so and it usually never turns out the way it should ,but there was no wind and she gave me the perfect opportunity . 35-40 is usually max and in the woods 25 yds is usually tops because of how thick it is .

I'm going to guess this was with a bow.
