Story: "On the morning of December 20th, I got into my treestand a little early. I had found several 6 inch cedar trees tore up along with 3 scrapes. I knew that a large deer had moved into my hunting area. I found myself in the stand at 5:15 am waiting on the sun to come up. At 6:45 am two four pointers came into the area. The surprising thing about them is that they decided to fight right in front of me. For 45 minutes I watched these two go at it. One of the four pointers had 3 on one side and the other was a 2 by 2. At 7:45 am the 2 by 2 left the area but the other walked with 20 yards of me. I had tunnel vision because the only thing I was watching was the four pointer to my left. This 9 pointer came in from the thicket to my right. He started walking straight to the four pointer before I intercepted him."
