I snort wheezed at a HUGE deer that was feeding in a field one night. Mid November. My wife was working at a nursing home and she and the other nurses were out smoking and I said "hey, watch this" (famous last words). That deer closed the hundred yards so fast it was scary! He ran STRAIGHT to me! He was within 10 yards staring at me. I was right out in the open so I croutched behind a lone bush about two feet high. I'm telling you guys, I was really scared, almost pissed down both legs! He was ticked off! He stomped both front feet a few times, at the same time, almost like a false charge and snorted back at me. I consider it one of the stupidest things I've ever done. About thirty seconds into it, he turned around and walked, not ran, back to the does in the field.
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?
