Bullseye...the one arrowed deer

UPDATE: It's about 4 pm, the man with the tranquilizer rifle is in his new position. We are waiting. She should show in the next hour or so. He is in a great position to get a perfect shot. We just need her. Come on Bullseye!!!!

This evening we are going to try again. We have let her calm down and get back into a routine. The weather is better so we will have daylight longer, and she has been coming earlier in the afternoons than before. She showed up yesterday around 4:30. That gives us a lot of daylight if we have to chase her down. 

We are moving the dart shooter to a new location, hidden behind a playhouse that the deer are used to. He will have a great shot from there. Ashley has agreed to be the nurse to my surgeon. She loves that sort of stuff. We have all our instruments, sutures and heated bed ready to go. 

I had a long talk with Bullseye the other afternoon. Explained that we are trying to help her and that she needs to cooperate. She listened about as well as my kids, which means not at all. 

In other news, Chris got a deer while hunting this weekend. Does anyone else see the humor in that? We are desperately trying to save one doe but will be eating another one soon.
