My Only Creedmoor Hunt.

Does a 6.5 Creedmoor hunt count if no deer were seen and consequently no shots taken.  Guess that is why they call it Hunting and not going out Deer Shooting.

A dry hunt often means you’re not just out there to “kill something”.  👍

Biggest misconception is when I hear, "what did it score?" Hunting is not a competition. Scores Are used to determine outcomes of competitions. I've saw the obsession of deer hunting scores ruin great friendships. Surely I like to shoot big deer but dont set my heart on getting the biggest.

Amen.  Will admit I find a small amount of pleasure when a quality buck I have committed a lot of time chasing, "whoops my a**."  Gives me inspiration and motivation for the next season.
If you have the shot, take it.

 Seeing as how I'm primarily a meat hunter, scoring seldom enters into it. Unless it's one of those "mines fatter than yours" things. I just get great pleasure from having an armed bushwalk. If I get a deer great, if not there's always the supermarket.
