So there I was, half an hour before sunset, texting in my deer stand. Out of the corner of my right eye I see a buck. I turn my head, and realize it is THE buck, the 10-pointer I have been watching for TWO YEARS. I stupidly did not even have an arrow nocked, so I do it quickly as he put his head down for a second. He is 15 yards from me. He never looked up at me, but he promptly trotted away, and I never got a chance to turn and draw. I tried to rattle him back in, but no luck. I need a “don’t text and hunt” law!!!

I am so f*cking frustrated with myself!!!

Why would you be in your stand and not have an arrow nocked??

That’s what I’m most excited about. I’m hoping he will stay safe until rifle season.

Best time of year is next couple of weeks.  No crossbow or compound?

He just needs to come thru that patch about 30 minutes earlier. They have definitely started the seeking phase as a buddy of mine had several pics early this morning on one cam of at least 4 different bucks looking for a date.

Don't despair, the story might not be over yet.  I had a similar thing happen last season (but it involved a bright chrome cup of hot cider - I learned the "text/phone" lesson a few years prior).    When the bruiser swamp buck caught a glimpse of me taking a sip, he walked out of range before I could get to my crossbow.   I watched where he went and moved my hang-on stand to a strategic location.   A week later, I had the last laugh.

Still hiding that chrome cup from him, I see.

Yeah, I'm pretty confident I'll see him again. I've been seeing him fairly often on the cameras.

Yeah, I did no learn that part of the lesson yet by that time.  Fortunately, he showed up the next week, right after I finished my drink and had it stowed back in my pack.  Last week, while hunting up in the northern zone, I wrapped that shiny chrome Stanley with dull black electrical tape.    Hopefully, I don't get busted with it again this year.

We both know one sock wouldn’t be enough to handle White Castle shits. You would be missing socks, boxers, base layers, and still have to find some leaves

Pretty damned pumped to get in the woods tomorrow, been over 2 weeks.  Going to sit a brand new spot in the white oaks in the AM, and probably apples in the evening.
