outdoorstom Posted October 31, 2011 Share Posted October 31, 2011 Last night I was sitting in the woods near Winthrop when I had 3 does and two bucks show up at last light. I wasn't able to get a good a look at the first buck, but could see a white rack moving through heaving brush. The second buck was a nice tall 8 pointer, and he was definitely checking out the does, grunting as he walked. I really thought I was going to fill my tag, but the doe he was following turned and took a different trail when she was about 40 yards away. Of course he took that trail too. I was really tempted to shoot, but couldn't get a clear shot through the brush. I didn't want to take a chance on wounding him, so I had to let him go. I could see the does being harrased out in the field a little while later. Really happy to see the seeking phase kicking in!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
