I know this is a bowhunting site but I had to share this. I was out gun hunting last night and had two tags. An either sex tag and an antlerless only tag. I was only planning on shooting a buck since I have enough meat in the freezer. However, a friend my wife works with has been begging for me to shoot a deer for them because they love the summer sausage. So a doe walks in and I drop her in her tracks 50 yards away from me and 15 yards from the field edge. 20 minutes after I shoot her a yearling bucks walks up to her and spends the next three hours trying to get her up and beds down next to her. I am thinking this is the best decoy ever. She was obviously a hot doe. It finally gets dard and I climb down the tree with my climber, grab all my gear and walk up to the doe. The buck stands up and just stands there. He would not leave her. I could not spook this buck away. After dragging the doe to the field edge to dress her he continues to stand 12-15 yards away just watching. I honestly think I could have walked right up to him. This was unbelievable. He stood within 15 yards of me for probably 15-20 minutes. When I was dressing the doe out I had the gun right next to me because I was kind of afraid he might charge me. After 20 minutes of this he finally walked off and fed in the picked bean field. I could have easily shot him but he was small and I am only looking for another wallhanger. Gotta love northern Illinois.
