Good End to a Rough Week

Recommended Posts

 My grandpa passed away last Tuesday peacefully at home at the age of 85 after a long battle with alzheimer's dementia. We buried him this Tuesday at Brigadier General William C. Doyle Memorial Cemetery. Then last Friday a good friend of my wifes passed away of a heart attack at 35 years old (funeral was Sunday). During the week I found out that a meal train was setup for the family (husband, 2 - 17 year old daughters and a 5 year old son) of my wifes friend. After finding out that the husband really enjoys venison stew I told my wife I was gunna go out today in hopes of harvesting a deer in order to make him a bunch of stew.  Well at 9am a good size doe snuck in on me presented me with a quartering away shot at 6 yards. When I found my bolt I noticed that 2 blades never deployed and 1 blade snapped off of my broadhead. Thankfully I broke a shoulder, took out 1 lung  and upon exiting hit the esophagus. She was down within 50 yards. Dropped her off at the butcher and as soon as I get the meat I will be making a bunch of stew and dropping it off for the family. It was a beautiful day in the woods with a great ending.

Great end to a rough week. Good job! I like the butcher you took her too as well. I use him a lot.

I’ve been hunting 2 miles from his shop for 23 years and I actually only started using him last year. I like his work and have zero complaints.

Sorry to hear your week Bill, but glad you found success today and will be passing on more of your generosity.  Prayers to all involved.

Sorry to hear about your week and your Grandfathers passing. My son is a scout and had placed many flags at that cemetery. I'm sure it going to be some good stew! Congrats!
