Default Scored....twice

Great advice from everyone here. Ended up getting into camp around 4, changed and got into the woods around 4:30. Walking in a saw a doe feeding and let her walk away. Get into my stand and 5 min later another doe jumps the creek and swims to the other side. 15 min later a six walks in, I video him for a bit, realize he is out to his ears and shoot him.....back into camp before dark. Next morning had two at light I let walk, and approx an hour later had 5 walk to my right and took the biggest which weighed 125. That evening I passe d a basket 8 and four yearlings that may or may not have made out club minimum of 90 lbs. Next morning had 3 come in and passed on a smaller buck with two I couldnt see. Have not had a hunt like that in a while especially with a full moon. 6 has a lot to be desired but in hindsight I would have given him a couple more year. Team 3 on the board

I am trying to get the fam up one last hunt. Christy won't shoot anything small
She said and Peyton and Jason each want a deer so we will try the last weekend if I can get off.... FWIW.... that doe was dry with no fetuses..... guessing she was an old nanny

The does were grouped up on my cams this week like Northern deer. Had 8 does walking single file in one line. I'm going to try and take 1 of those soon. My freezer is empty except for hamburger meat which I rarely eat

Good deal.

Late season with a food source can be good hunting

Awesome hunt congrats

now if your teammate will start killing instead of watching deer I've been waiting on the big guy, but as the season gets later my standards are starting to get lower
