Yesterday morning had a lone doe stroll by at 15 yards.

Yesterday evening, on a different property, had a mama and a baby go by at 20 yards around 5:30 and then three more doe followed suit at 6:30.

Good luck to those out there today!
Apparently you are not supposed to let them walk away without shooting them...

But of course...

He said the thing was facing him for about 20 minutes before it turned sideways to allow for a shot. It was eating at a bait pile someone set up on the property we hunt. He thinks it had a bad eye as one was cloudier than the other once he found it.
Now it's got two bad eyes LOL! Congrats to the young hunter!

Son found an 8 point this morning. Gut shot and at least two days old. Wonder if it was from the group on the property before us or from a neighboring one. Either way, I hate to see that. Both for the hunter and the deer.

I thought I was gonna have to shoot a doe last night. 3 does came in on high alert. Not sure why but came in all stumpy and heads bobbin. Wind was in my favor. Told em under my breath if you start blowing I start shootin. They didnt agree with that I guess so they left. Right away 2 other big does came in and they didn't care about anything at all. A few of the young bucks were scent checking any does that would let em get near but they tried to keep their distance. Had some sparring going on down in front as well. Coolest part of the night was watching a hawk fly about 50 yards of the trail maybe 6 inches off the ground and tried to snag a squirrel. He failed, but I was rooting for him.
