Went out this morning with a bow, and had 5 does at 35 yds, but it was brushy and they wouldn't come to my shooting lane. Watched them for about 30 minutes, and they bolted in every direction. Nice 8 point walked up and just stared around, and started eating some of the browse the does were eating. Then he bolted, and a couple of does ran by my stand. never did see what it was, but I'm sure it was another buck.
Don't know if any remember about the buck with a gimp leg I saw last weekend I reported, but he came by today working his scrape line and didn't limp at all.
Had a nice buck walk by the shooting lane that had the left side broken off. If it looked like the right, he would have been a 3 1/2 yr old 8 point.
Got hungry and left to get a snack at the truck about noon, and while decocking the crossbow, 6 does came across the pasture, bounding. One stopped right in the vehicle tracks where the grass was low, and stood there. Got it cocked, an arrow loaded, and when I raised to shoot, she took a step and dissapeared. Oh well, thats hunting.
Got the 1937 Jap Arisaka loaded in the truck for opening morning.

It does seem that deer have 6th sense on just when it's time to leave, usually when something pointy it pointed at them.

Actually I think lots of game does. One thing I've noticed, is that if some crows are in a field, and you stop to look at them, they just keep doing what crows are doing. If you stick your arm out the window and point a finger at them they fly like a covey of quail flushing. Maybe they are smarter than we thing ???
