    My deer season lasted a total of 1hours and 40minutes :neener: I went out at two and shot my deer at 3:40. I'll tell my story now that i skipped to the end :D I had set in the stand about an hour and a half and had seen 10:cuss:squirrels and 2 bluejays. I heard some nice steps coming so I knew it wasn't another:cuss: squirrel and over the ridge came 3 does the first doe was a yearling and then a little fawn came and then a get this a 3 legged doe but back about 25yards I heard another deer I had a good fealing it was a buck because the last doe the 3 legged one kept looking over her shoulder. The does knew I was there they walked right through the trail that I walked through to get to my stand and they were about 5yards from me. The 3 legged doe looked stait up at me I already had my gun up and on my gun rest/ thingamajiger to keep me from falling out so I just sat there like a stone and finnaly they walk on and down came the buck I saw antlers and I said to myself don't look at the antlers,don't look at the antlers,don't look at the antlers just shoot the :cuss: thing. Shot it strait through the heart it ran about 20 yards and just over the ridge I heard it crash down and I walked over the ridge and gutted him out and dragged it out with the fourwheeler and called it a day. I had some guys that dress tons of deer in the season(yes i dress my own deer I donated this one) and they said it would go 130 its and 8 pointer almost a nine pointer It's my second buck ever maybe I'll get a bigger one tomorrow. 100_0413.jpg

    30 minute hunt

    This is what I like to see, some good huntin" storys. I am headed out for a few days to hunt out of the stand where this deer was taken on opening day (not by me doggonit) in central Tx.

    Yesterday morning I was at an area closer to where I live. Three doe came down the hill behind my tree stand, several years ago I put up an old rear view mirror aimed where I can see behind me. Several times over the years deer have come down the hill from someone elses property and walk within 8 to 15 ft of my tree stand. Previously Id never been able to see them until they were passed me and headed away.

    I heard all of the noise and hoped it might be a big 10 or 12 pt buck we sighted following does last week, so I had my 44 mag pistol ready for a very close shot. I watched in the mirror and saw the three doe slowly moving in. They got wind of me or the deer esterus I had put out. Whatever it was they didnt like it, the biggest one turned snorted and slowly moved back where they came from.

    I really thought Id descented myself very well and I was wearing thick coveralls. I think I may have put out some scent that had some dominant buck urine in it. Sometimes I have combined near empty bottles. Now I wonder if I am scaring deer this way. I busted a buck last week because he stopped when he crossed my scent trail Id left by spraying the bottom of my shoes on the way to the stand. I was in my stand just 30 minutes to take him.

    Maybe doe are just spooky.
