Story: I had bout an hour on this particular evening to hunt before dark so I decided to sit in a field watching the edge of a patch of woods that I think is a bedding area hoping to catch something coming out. I'd been set for bout 15 minutes when I saw movement back in the woods but wasn't sure what it was. Bout 5 minutes later I saw a deer pass through an opening with its tail sticking straight out and another deer behind it. Maybe 5 minutes later I saw more movement when three does came boiling out of the woods into the field. The does came right up by me and the buck came out and just stopped, looking to see where his harem was headed. I shot and missed theh front-on shot, but he continued toward the does and I anchored him with follow-up shots. He's a 5x5 with an extra 2" point sticking out of his forehead.
