Went out to the bowhunt only woods in my new set up with the fixed stand chad gave me. Set it about 15 yds off a trail and close to were I had a chance at a doe last week. About 9:00 am I see a deer making its way to me so I get ready and see antlers about this time my heart is pumping and I get ready for a shot and about twenty yards away I notice he only has one side and he is a BIG half racket...would be a tall and thick 8pt with both sides. It looks like he shed it a while ago. Didn't seem to be sick or hurt but did look like a young deer. I thought about shooting him and looking for his shed the rest of the winter but only for 5 mins. As he browsed in front of me for ten mins.He should be a monster next year. Had some does go by later but none were within my range. Promised the daughter I would take her to a girls basketball game so off to do that and work on th house later. Maybe I will hunt tomorrow morning......pretty confident I did the rift thing....after spouting that I would take any deer right now in my career but there was just something that didn't feel right about shooting him.
