Your real good fortune was that no other deer were in the field.

How did I miss this thread???[:@]
Great story JPH, alot of the times it's the aggressive hunters who think outside the box that come out ahead! Thanks for the great story!

Great story. I was really into reading it and seemed like I was reading it faster as you started stalking him! The best part was that you got him, I was waiting for a sad ending. Congrats on a beautiful trophy!

I prob would of done the same thing as you jph, i want to say i would of sat still that night, and set up a ground blind by their trail the next day, but if i saw that deer consistantly for a few days in a row i would be thinking " damn how many times am i going to see him before hes gone?" And then that thought would of probably consumed me and i would have to get down and try to stalk him. Especially if he was trying to get with a doe. Like you said prob not the most mature thing, but i wouldn't of been able to hold back either. But great story!!! And an awesome buck! Congrats!!

Hey, thanks for bringing this thread back to the top! I've got a few more of these (but not many that ended as well) and I'd like to post them when I get time.
It is fun to play "what would you do".
