Well I forgot to set the alarm last night.......So I figured I would just go cut firewood for the day.....decided to spend some time w/my daughter this morning instead..... 1:00-headed for a new spot.... 1:30 found a good tree....I say good....would 3 fresh scrapes within 45 yrds be a good tree to sit in? 1:45- I have climbed the tree, screwed in my e-z hanger,knocked an arrow and have ranged all the important trees..... 2-4:30-not as many tree rats in this spot....I am going to like this spot, I think:biggrin1: 4:45-notice a deer(think its a doe) walking from my left to my right about 80yrds out..... 5:00-another 3 does go by... 5:10-hear something behind me to my right.....looking in that direction, low and behold its a deer, this one is acting different, scrapeing, licking branches and rubbing trees w/its head......so I get up and grab my bow.... 5:20-hes headed my way and I still can not tell if its a buck, and if it is I can not tell if its legal....has to have three points on a side.....roughly 5:22 I can tell it has at least a 4, is that another point?.....yup theres 2 more and look it has brow tines.....its an 8 and now its right under me.....its really a wide rack....have to look straight down....I am going to take him if I get the chance.... and now for a word from our sponsers.....summit tree stands and saftey harnesses.......you will never be more comfortable......you will however learn to mount your harness rope lower on the tree so you can draw your damn bow...... I have to unhook the release and rehook after putting my arm over the saftey strap.....and start to turn all while the deer is now directly under me.... well I dont know how:noidea: but he sees all this and trots out to forty yrds where he wonders off..... So I figure done now, right....wrong....its almost too dark to shoot and I have forced myself to sit untill its completly dark..... well next thing I know I think I hear a very faint grunt....no I must be hearring things right? nope here comes a deer and he is grunting and running like a kid w/dads tru talker call when someone is trying to catch him....well wrong again its 3 deer and guess what the 8 point is back and now he has to slammers in tow, and they are peed off......the second one looks bigger, they run right thru at 20 yrds and never slow down... Grunting like crazy the whole time......it was awsome and has me really pumped about this spot..... So now its been dark for about 45 minuets now I can get down.....well wrong again...I am on my way out have about 1/2 mile back to the truck....twice more these deer run in front of me, at one point I have to move to the side of the logging road to get out of there way.....thank the lord I brought my red light..... It was an awsome afternoon......the only thing that would have been better would be to get one but I will take more days like today any time.
