..saw two

late! at 9:30 one came through pines feeding. stepped out in my shooting lane at 35 yards....I was just about to draw back and it took a couple of steps behind some stuff. then walked back to my right where I couldnt see..then I spotted another one, directly to my right...then I lost both of them. I sat back down and then the both popped out in front of me about 40 yards, walking real slow through the pines. I stood up..and when I shifted my feet to get in position, they must have seen me move...they threw up their head..and took off about 40 yards...stopped, then walked off....o'well...good hunt!

got down about 10:10..'cause it was gettin' hot!

got home about 5 today and my darling wife said we didnt have anything planned

so I slipped down to my wood stand down in the field. This stand is about 250 yards from my back door...I can hear my kids playing outside, jumping on the trampoline,,,,,

anyways, I've sat in it many times before and really havent seen much, it kinda sticks out , but the deer must be used to it... theres 4 white oaks in the middle of the field (my stand is on one) and they were starting to drop acorns pretty good the other day...well, at 7:20 it was fairly dark and I was about to get down..but out in front of me, in the thick pines, I could hear something..so I sat......it was getting pretty darn dark now...then I saw one jump the fence...then another, and another....the first one walked right to me and started to feed...10 yards!.....so I put her in the scope..did I mention is was dark?..almost too dark..I got her head in the scope and then lowered it to her neck and took the shot, she just about filled up my 6x18x50 scope...figured she was be drt...nope! took off like a lighting bolt!..got down, and looked for blood..but nope!...me and my daughter looked and looked...but no blood...I knew she ran to the planted pines so I just jumped on the fourwheeler and rode up and down the rows untill we spotted her...absolutely no blood... low neck shot, but she still ran 100 yards

now I can just sit back and wait this weekend...wont be so trigger happy
