I was out Friday morning and just before legal light I saw a lighter colored blob about 40 yards out. He slowly worked his way to the side of me and it was the largest bodied deer I had ever seen but that doesn't mean much. He got behind a tree I had ranged that was 16 yards.
It was dark enough that I could not see the rack other than a couple of brief instances where I had a glimpse with a lighter background. It didn't seem to be wide but it looked abnormally tall but again I couldn't see it very well.
About 0720 a 6-8 pointer came through to the west but didn't stick around. I went back out in the PM and saw another buck passing thru.
Saturday AM didn't see anything after a few hours & after 0800 the farmer started digging up the field 50 yards to the east and with a slight NE breeze all I got was a lung full of diesel fumes so I came in.
This morning I got busted going in at 0500 and then nothing until the farmer bordering the north field came in to dig that field up.
I haven't seen any does since the first weekend in October.
Oh well. I won't be able to get out again until the weekend. Tuesday is election judge duty - Yee-haw
Maybe I had better get serious about talking to the wife
