Not a monster like some of those posted previously, but certainly some tasty meat to fill the freezer. After hitting and losing a spike buck on the second day of the NY southern tier shotgun season, I was incredibly dejected and thought that I'd never end up harvesting a deer this season, but low and behold, this girl came in 20 minutes before sunrise with two of her fawns(one being a button buck) and an additional two does on my first morning on stand at a new location. It was my first time ever hunting private property and it's definitely incredible to see how differently the deer behave in an area where there is little to no pressure--I've always hunted state land and after the first day or two, the deer patterns change and they're no where to be found during day light hours. These five deer came within 5 to 15 yards of my stand and even with the wind blowing my scent right into their nose, they stuck around for over 20 minutes. It was a remarkable sight that I've finally been able to witness and really brings deer hunting into a whole new world for me. I cannot wait to hunt this property next year, especially given the abundance of deer signs(over a dozen huge scrapes, rubs on decent sized trees). Anyway, after a long-winded post, here's a picture of the good sized doe that I harvested on my first private property hunt. Unfortunately, I didn't have a high quality camera with me in the field, so a tailgate picture is the best I could procure.
