Day one of the hunt was pretty wet and windy. I toughed it out, but ended the day drenched.
I had some deer around me during my morning hunt, but nothing big enough to shoot. The bucks are with does so you have to find the does or wait for the bucks to break free to find another lady friend. I left my morning stand at 1pm to head to my evening stand a couple miles away. My truck was parked in the middle of a pasture a good mile from my stand. I got to my truck and started to load my stuff in the back when just 100 yards to my south there was a good buck and a doe bedded. He wasn't as big as the buck in the picture above or I would have tried to stalk him. It's funny how you can take all sorts of measures to set up on deer and then have two lay down close to your parked vehicle.
