Big Buck

It was 6 weeks into season,with only one shooter seen.(wich was on opening morning,first thing a nice 8)So it was getting close to the cutting.Weather had been crazy,65 then 45,well today it was 34 and rain allday.After 6 hours,my hands wear frozen,my glasses looked like the mirriored house at the fair so i was going to the house.As i came off my sweet spot looking to the big field(700 y) there was a doe runing and HIM,she came out about 70 yards,he was runing from the woods to her and back,and fro ect.So i began looking for dry clothes to clean up my scope and my glasses.After that i pulled up and they were still there,back and fro,fro and back.He stopped but my heart didn't,hands froze well i counld't get a shot off that would have hit a truck let alone a buck,All my standing props were to short this year to get a shot across the ditch,with taller trees this year.I couldn't have done anything any different except had a rest.So i chalk that one up to Mother Nature and remember her Well..Tom

Re: Big Buck

Don't feel bad Tom it happens to all that hunt very much.

You made the right choice by not taking an iffy shot and risk wounding
a nice buck.

Re: Big Buck

That one will bring you back next year a little wiser, but the buck will be a little wiser too! Sometimes hunts like this are the most memorable!
