There really are deer in the woods!

 

My wife tapped out at 9:30 and headed back to the truck. I texted here I wanted to sit still for a while longer. I packed up and headed out a little before 11. I jumped a deer just past where she had been sitting on my way out. I heard it and only saw a tail. So, I skirted the area where we park to see if I could get a better look. Jumped them again, turned out to be two does which turned and ran back towards where I originally jumped them.

Being optimistic I thought I'd drop my pack at the truck and sit for a short bit in a small gully thinking maybe a buck would come sniffing. So I drop my pack and motion to my wife I'm going to take a quick peek pointing where I was headed. I start walking past the truck and I hear a doe blow in front of me. I glance to my right and see another two deer looking at me, she stomped blew and both took off. I put on a little stalk, and they were both does too. I was hoping one was a buck, with just about all I had I was hoping one of them was a buck.

 

So we saw a total of 6 deer between us, probably 5 as the doe she had milling around was probably one of the ones I jumped on my way out. I'll take it! Actually seeing deer helps motivate me more then staring at squirrels and chipmunks.

 

I want to head out down here tomorrow, hopefully the coffee I spilled all over my little chair dries by then and my knees feel better. I don't know what's going on, but the past year or so my knees and elbows hurt enough to rival my back at times.

Big body 8 point I grunted in at about 3:30. Sat behind a rock wall for about 45 minutes. Quick efficient hunt for once lol. Hopefully my buddy doubles up.

Dad just shot a buck, he was worried he blew out both shoulders but it snowplowed outa sight, driving to spot I found him by road still alive and he finished him. He woulda been dead in minutes however. 
best part I convinced him to go sit in my stand on a close property to my house while we were cutting up my deer.

Well just got back from @Swamp_bucks. What a trip! Evan is a great guy and his knowledge of deer hunting is phenomenal. He was very welcoming I visited his house a couple times. He found me a lake house that was great. We went out to eat a couple time. Let me tell you what his wife makes a great chili. He came through I seen deer and got my first archery shot opportunity but I shot in front of it. He gave me some great advice and even went to search cuz he was 60 yards behind me and heard a thwack. He offered me a good spot Friday night but wind wasn't right and had a white out. He also helped me setup my stand in a great spot. Opening day was like no other I seen 32 deer came through where I was at. I had a shot opportunity at a big 6 or 8. Shot he stood between 100-125 yards pulled the trigger click re racked click he was still there moved alittle repacked again click. So he got away. Got to drag out one hell of a buck Evan got. Long drag with help of a few friends. Let me tell you what he's got some great friends. After helping drag the buck to the truck. I went back on stand I'm glad I did mid day was awesome deer were moving like crazy. I couldn't find any horns. 23 deer come through. I sat till I could in my stand 330 then got down legs and hip killing me surprised I made it back to truck. Went back to the lake house had a few beers and debated launching the rifle in lake lol. Hunted today 515 to 930 no deer but a hunting party member shot a buck. The hunting, hospitality,food,friends and his family were fantastic. His friends offered me to hunt more midday but had to check out of house and take a ride to the taxidermist. Thanks Evan for the offer to comeback next year. Memories to last a lifetime.
