Story: Around 8 am, two does were sneaking through the thicket about 60 yards behind me. My 7 year old nephew had spent the night with us and wanted to "help" with a deer the next morning, so I decided to take a doe is she presented a shot. The large doe gave me a quartering away shot about 55 yards out and she ran straight toward my tree and crashed about 30 yards out in a dry creekbed. I decided to wait on stand for another 30 minutes. 15 minutes later, this buck came from behind me and on his present course would not give me a shot before he winded me. Fortunately, he smelled the doe and veered off course and gave me a clear shot. He dropped in his tracks. Aged at 3 1/2. A great start to Thanksgiving!
