  4. This reminds me of my first ever (and still biggest) buck from 10 years ago, pic attached. He was following/chasing a doe, and I got a nice broadside shot at 25yds. Runs about 20 yards and crashes. I can see him laying there, not moving. The doe actually comes back to him, smells him and stands there. She leaves after a few minutes. I walkie to my dad saying big buck down. He tells me to wait, I’m just sitting there for 30 min watching this massive buck laying there, still hasn’t moved a muscle, meanwhile I’m shaking like crazy. I start walking up to the buck, about 5 yards away, gun on him, he still doesn’t move. Stand over him, still doesn’t move. Someone talks on the walkie, and it’s loud, the buck jumps up and takes off, I couldn’t get a shot off as he almost runs me over, and he luckily goes right to my dad, who finished him off. Don’t think I’ve ever got yelled at more in my life for not finishing off the deer when I had the chance. So now I do the old poke the eyeball test. Needless to say I certainly learned my lesson and won’t ever forget it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wow. That was a top 5 all time NFL game for me. Just brainwashed for 4 hours. I feel like anyone who watched that game deserves a paid day off tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Very quiet AM hunt in 7J. 3 of us sat until 11:15, no sightings. Heard a few shots before sunrise, and then only a few after that. Normally it’s like the 4th of July. Saw tons of tracks in the snow from yesterday (including a lot of coyote). Will be back out this afternoon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Pretty warm with melting snow. Better weather than opening days of the past I suppose. Good luck to everyone out there, and remember it’s about the hunt not the kill! Have fun! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
