...for me. Friday evening I saw my first sign of bucks chasing. Sitting in the open hardwoods, I had a doe come running up the hillside & stop about 30 yard in front of me. She did know exactly what I was & decided to run off to my right & past me. About 1 minute later a small 6 pointer came running right up the trail & stopped close to where she did. He didn’t really see because he was looking for her.
I had the scope hairs right on his head checking out his rack but never once dropped down on his chest. He was just the kind of buck that I let go in my effords to improve deer in the areas I hunt or to let grow up & get smarter. I'm learning a lot of about this this year.
I’m sure if I end up not using my tag, this one might come back & haunt me but for only a second If he lives through the gauntlet of “if its brown it’s down” or “any antlered buck will do”….then he’ll make for a great challenge trying to figuring him out in another couple of years or chasing around on my trail camera.
