Anyhow I decided to go out Saturday for an afternoon bow hunt. I thought I would hunt a ground blind ( I had not hunted this year) I had set up weeks before the gun opener. This blind is well off the beaten path and quite a hike, set well betwwen two bedding areas and right on a travel pinch point. Well, the snow was deeper than I thought and noiser than heck to walk on. I busted a group of bedded does about three hundred yards from the blind. Oh well, against my better judgement I continued to head to my blind trying to be quiet as possible ( there was a bit of wind and I thought well there still may be a chance.) As I got closer to my blind I bust two more deer on large body (not sure buck or doe). Now I am getting a bit frustrated. Now I find my blind had been colapsed by the snow we had a couple of weeks back. Great, I decided to bust up the rock solid snow and attempt to salvage my blind. I was certain that after all that noise I would be better off going back home, but I decided to sit there instead, maybe get a shot off at a turkey or yote.
It ended up I had 20 turkeys within 5 feet of my blind and no shot at them. And about a half hour before sunset a Doe with two yearling presented a 25 yard perfect broadside shot. However I decided to let her pass. I am not sure why.
