    so i wake up this mornin to go hunting and think .. eh its gonna happen this afternoon i aint goin and i went back to bed. i got to the woods at 430 and was up 20 ft in my summit by 5. i was at a T in a loggin road by some sinkholes. at about 620 a doe came blowin by and i was like wat the hell so i grabb my bow and am watchin her turn around and start to come back when another one comes flyin by. now im really wonderin wats goin on. they work there way to about 8 yds when i hear it. ive never heard it before and quite honestly i never thought i would hear it ... the buck roar. so i hear it and my heart stops. i grab my binos and start lookin. 5 minutes later i find him.. a big massive 10 with long tines ... im guessing a 155" deer. im runnin outta light and hes got about 60 yds to go before hes in ranger now its 640 and i can barely make him out at 50yds. he hangs up there and the does wander off and he follows .....soooooooo close... i am not shootin any other deer unless its bigger than this one .... a little rut activity in southern IL

    What's a buck roar sound like? I watched one grunting like a pig, with his nose buried in a doe's you-know-what. Like an elk bugling?
