The sunrise was beautiful. Isat in my stand all day long, I didn't see my first deer until 11:30 am. It was three does up on the ridge and to far to get a good clean shot. The squirrells kept me busy and the chipmonks scuried all over the place. By noon Doug and I had a talk and decided that we would stay till dark, he was seeing deer but had not gotten any clear shots as of yet. Then around 4:30 I heard something to my left and as I stood and hugged the tree as not to highlite myself, a big fat doe walked right in as pretty as you please, there was some movement behind her and I waited to see what this deer would be, hey it a button buck so I decided not to take her because of that, but the button buck was nervious for some reason and kept looking back up the hill. As they started to walk away I kept my eye on the hill and low and behold out came HIIM. A nice 5 pointer.
I ot to weigh him and he field dressed out at 139 lbs. I also say those turkeys again today but they spied me this time and could not get any pictures of them. One of them had a beard that made a L shape. This bird is an old Tom and I sure would like to get him.
