dang man so close at a dream buck hope you get him todaye_smith06 wrote:Ok condensed story of today:
No deer this AM.
This afternoon: I moved the blind to the other side of the field so I would have the right wind.
The deer piled in 30 minutes before dark, video camera rolling at this point. 6 point at 250 yards, 8-10 does, another 6 point comes in. I'm having trouble videoing because there's so many deer. Then out of nowhere (20 yards from previous blind location) a 110" 8 point followed by a 120" 8 point. Followed by SAD DADDY 150-160" 10 point with split g3 left side. I'm as calm as a fella can be in that situation, watching from 250 yds. Then the does break and head straight up the hedgerow towards the present location of the blind. Am I really gonna get a shot at this guy?! Seconds are dragging by yet passing so fast. Heart rate 150. More deer have piled in, 20 sets of eyes file past the camera lens at 20-60 yards, sad daddy bringing up the rear. Come closer!! 78 yds, then 71, then 68, then 60... Hey! I can shoot at 60! Now 62, crap he's going away. No time to think! Draw, he's broadside. Heart rate 200. Steady... Pin settles, heart rate 200. squeeze, heart rate 300. The Launchpad lights, arrow arcs, deer doesn't drop? What? Fletchings touched his belly? Heart stops. Sad daddy runs 100 yards away and stops, and begins eating again. Camera still rolling, heart still not beating, haven't breathed in 10 minutes. Heart broken. Will be near his bedding area in the morning, praying to God I get another chance at this once in a lifetime buck.

Saw 20 horse does, 937 squirrels, and a 150" 10 point chased a doe 30 yards in front of the blind, but it was too dark to see the pins on my sight. Got some decent video of the big does. Can't hardly wait for 5am to get back in there.
