This was one of the most productive days we've had. I saw 6 in the morning and then 6 in the afternoon-- all doe or button bucks. I also had 14 turkey close by at one point.
I spent both the morning and the afternoon counting coup on the doe-- had some terrific shots that I didn't take-- one inside 5 yards on the ground. I frankly don't want to burn a tag this early in the season, unless it's something spectacular.
No luck on Saturday. Only saw 1 deer, and it got by me before I could even tell what it was for sure. It helps to be looking in the right direction when the deer go thru and the woods are so thick you can't see more than 25 yards. I did connect on another nice doe Sunday evening. I can now hunt for horns with 2 in the freezer.
I'm not sure, was that the one that was shot in Lewis Co. that was not found for a week or two? Did you see the picture of the buck that Marc Anthony took from Owen Co. in Sept.? Real nice deer, green score I think was 182" How you been? I've been busy this year, and haven't been able to post much this summer.
It's tough to see, but what you can sure looks like a great deer. I think even you might have pulled the trigger on that one. Maybe we should spend a little more time in our back yards, huh! Tell him Congrats. Good Luck on your hunt this weekend, keep us posted.
