It was hard to let her go...
Saturday, October 1st.
I got out my stand overlooking a cut cornfield around 5 pm. It was warm, but not uncomfortable. There were fewer bugs out which was a blessing. Right as I got settled in I looked over and saw a doe walking away from me on the next hill over. About 5:20 I notice a lone doe coming down the trail from my left. She would stop and nibble on the underbrush and then keep coming towards me. She got to 15 yards broadside, and stood there for 5 minutes or so. She then proceeds to walk directly under my tree stand. She hung around for 15 minutes or so and then wandered out into the corn field. I second guessed my self 5 or 6 times. Should I have taken the shot? No it's early yet. Yes I should have taken a doe, we have a few on the property. No, I have plenty of season. Yes, She gave yo a perfect shot.
Nothing much happened until right at last light. Another doe came in on the same trail and bedded down right in front of me. I ended up reaching over and snapping a small branch. That got her on her feet and she wandered off. Neither deer knew I was there or how close they came to being in my freezer.
It is suppose to be warm this week up in Wisconsin. My next update may come next weekend when I can get out in the morning.
