I went to my SIL's property this am . I planned on walking across the combined field but apparently it was plowed yesterday . Walked the long way around to the stand. I was setup by 6:30 . Around 7:30 I saw a lone doe . Then around 7:45 a doe and a buck came along . They walked along the field edge and wouldn't cross like they normally do .
I went up to my vehicle around noon . Was sitting there drinking coffee and eating a granola bar when a buck stepped out of the bushes 70 yards away . He stood there long enough for me to dig out my camera and get some video . Then he walked down by my afternoon stand and moved on .
I sat in that stand for a couple hours and changed stands again . Didn't see anything until about 5:15 . I saw a buck 200 yards across the field . Used the "Can" and he stopped . Took some video then used the grunt tube . Damn if he didn't cross the plowed field fast . He came into the Lane-way (a lane with hedge rows on each side) but wouldn't give me a shot . At almost 6 pm , I got down , check the West field , grabbed my gear and started for the Subi . $ doe hauled butt across the field with the buck right behind them . Day-um !
