Whew! :o

I actually got out with bow in hand, had a wonderful afternoon/evening 3 hour sit, and got home unstung, uncrashed, and in one piece! Yeaaaah! However, truth be told, I was just a tad skittish, especially when stuff would fall out of the tree and land on me! :lol:

My first sit of the (30 day thus far) season turned out to be a ball! Got on stand at 4:30, and a 5pm a mature lone doe skierted her way through the tree line 30 yds out. At 6pm, a nice 3.5yo 8pt popped out 8yds beside me on my right, looked around a bit and moved on. He's a fine buck, typical Hill Country deer with a nice basket rack on him. Although I don't recognize him, I'm confident he's one of the younger bucks I watched last year at this stand, either the 3x3 or the 3x4 ("Wannabe") and has grown a bit. He was very photogenic and allowed me several phtos, and didn't mind the flash at all (I've never had a deer notice the camera flash - buck or doe, old or young). Here's Mr. Photogenic, the 8pt....

Then, at 7pm, something fell on my shoulder from the elm tree above me, and being somewhat "cautious" now days, I look at my shoulder and find nothing, then look up in the tree above me to see what's going on... nothing. I then turn my head to the left and there stands old "Super Wide", staring at me 30 yds out! :lol: We do the "who blinks first" game for several minutes, then he does the casual "head turn & snap back" stare to catch me moving. I don't of course. Anyway, he finally gets bored and walks off across the meadow, satisfied he didn't take any chances with whatever was in that tree. If he gives me the chance this season, I'll take him. He's a fine old buck, sporting a 2 foot spread with a low, wide frame of a rack. We'll see....

I'm so looking forward to this season! :D

Actually, your hunt was during the same week/month mine was this past Saturday (last week of October). Don't you remember, how full the trees & brush was, and how challenging it was for you to "see" the deer you could hear around our stand sites? We've had a lot of rain this year, so it is "greener" (thicker foliage actually) than normal years, but not unusual.

I'll do. :wink:

We never tire of seeing bucks pass by do we? Then we hope that the buck of a lifetime will stroll by and present himself for a perfect shot. Hope all goes well for you Zano.
