Sigh.....

So close. The guy with the tranquilizer gun was all set up, in a shadow behind a fence. We moved the deer block a little closer to him so he would have a perfect shot. About 4:30 Chris went out and shook the corn and here she came out of the woods. 

She got halfway to the feed and stopped. You could see her twitching her ears listening. Then for 20 minutes she pranced around just out of range. Coming closer, edging away. Back and forth. Then the neighbors decided to rev up their pickup truck and off she went. 

The guy waited for a while but finally left as it began to get too dark to get a good shot. Wouldn't you know it, here she came and ate steadily for 40 minutes.  

I don't know how many more times he will try. They are talking about just having the Game Warden come put her down (ie:kill her) Time is running out for Bullseye.....

perhaps they will let Chris put her down (special license???) and then he can say he got a deer this seaon???


perhaps that is too morbid?

I am hoping that she can be tranqed and the arrow removed. She is a survivor.

Love and hugs,
Deb
