I went out Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Thursday I came the closest. I was just sitting and spacing when suddenly there is a deer right next to me out of the corner of my eye. It looked like a small doe.
I instinctively turned my head and the tag on my tree harness scraped the tree. This made the deer completely freeze up. As I was watching the deer I tried to quietly take the safety off of my rifle but no dice. As soon as the safety disengaged the deer heard it and took off. :pissed:
Oh well it is a pretty tough sport for beginners anyway. I am going out next Saturday and that will finish up the season. Hopefully I will get something at the last minute.
The grandson of the man who owns the farm where I hunt did find his big buck and it was the largest seen at the check station in four years! So they are out there and big ones too.
Saturday I changed things up and tried hunting on the edge of the cornfield. I got there about four and was pretty tired by nine.
Anybody having any luck this season?
