Friday I had a few hours to hit the woods and with a south wind I headed to a spot I haven't hunted in years. The spot is a nice funnel adjacent to some power lines and covered in white oaks and beech along a tiny creek. I found a tree that would give me cover and good shooting lanes. At 5:30 I noticed two does across the woodlot and it looked as if they might circle down towards me. At 6:00 both made their way by my stand, feeding in and out of beech saplings. The bigger doe was going to pass me at 8 yards broadside. As she walked behind a tree, I drew... she stopped... I held for 10 seconds or so and she stepped out slightly quartering toward me. I knew I could slip the arrow onto where it needed to be. The shot looked perfect and I knew she wouldn't make it long. She made it 150 yards on a dead run before crashing.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

Thanks guys. It was a great hunt I went out tonight and saw a few does off a ways and had a young 4 pointer walk under me. Going to try and get out tomorrow evening again.

Congrats Greg.

Saturday I had seven antlerless (one an odd "double button" that may have a interesting rack in a few years). The button walked a few feet away under my stand. I could have held out my arm and dropped an arrow on him.

At two times an our apart I had a doe with twin youngins and both times the older does kept just out of range and walked back and forth along a parallel trail 60 yards west (upwind) of my stand - looking away from me. It was like they were patrolling. A pair of the fawns actually bedded 40 yards away at one point.

No real shots presented. One "iffy" 25 yard on a larger doe that I passed on. Though I was 3/4 drawn it just didn't feel right - she turned away instead of towards me and never paused. I'm a 20 yard kind of hunter.

Still hoping for one of the bucks that my trail-cam captured. [thumbsup]

Leaving for an evening sit shortly. Going to see what's moving this afternoon. Hope to have a bit of action but who knows. It is a beautiful day.

Just woodpeckers and chipmunk races, but it was a nice 3 1/2 hour sit. Weather was beautiful.

A couple of does blew past me at around 4:30. Walked home at 6:10 to find 5 of them eating acorns under the oak on my lawn. You just have to laugh sometimes. Anyhow, the temps are a bit more cooperative and maybe we'll start seeing more deer. I agree with whoever said better a longer late season than the early October opener. Wondering what the crossbow menace will bring......

Sat again this morning from 6:15 to 10am without seeing a deer. Last deer I saw was opening morning when I saw 2 does with fawns. Walked out of the woods to my truck at 10am and while putting my stuff in the truck looked up and on the hill overlooking the homeowners driveway stood 3 doe looking down on me. Like huntryx said, " you just gotta laugh".

More heatwave, but some movement in the AM. Mostly chipmunks during the evening sit.
