Story: i hunted this deer 165 + hrs in my tree lounge, he was a smart deer i took the 8th and 9th off work to hunt because field and stream mag, said that nov 9th was gonna be the best day of the 07 season to harvest that big buck your hunting, so i took the day before also and just happened to be the day he messed up chasing a doe around the ridge and then bedding down with her i got down from my tree lounge at 9:30 to go to the car and shed some clothes because it was 60 degrees and get my other tree lounge to put it in my evening spot saw the buck chasing a doe oround the ridge so went back up the ridge and rattled and grunted for about 1 hr in a few places (no answer) so i began walking back to my car down the ridge and looked off to my left and saw him taking a break with the do bedding down with wind in my face and in his also even though the leaves were crunchy the advantage went to the hunter (me) drew on him @ 60 yds the doe saw me and bolted off and i knew this was it i had better do something now!!! he started looking around but never made it . thanks to tree lounge for keeping me in my stand and thanks to field and stream for the info on the best hunting dates. thanks R.James (millersville fire dept.)
