Neat deal and I will give you the short version. My family was going to come out with me this weekend to meet and hang out with ChicoKid and his clan, well it got cancelled. My 14 year old Non Hunting daughter Victoria wanted to come out and hang with her old man (me)
Get there Friday 7:30 pm, daughters late sleeper but tells me go hunt in the am while she snores, she wants to sit in the stand with me later.
Now it gets interesting, a real nice main frame 8 that I have been watching the last 2 years shows up casually walking the field looking good! Heart starts thumping, take the safety off he is 60 yards away standing broadside and decided to pass on the hope that he would show up in the afternoon so I could have that memory with my girl.
Afternoon in the blind for 5 minutes and a doe runs across the field and I am thinking here we go, nope nothing following. 10 minutes later big 1 horn enters the field munching then heads to the neighbors to the east and we hear boom, bye one horn
Sunset 5:30, last legal shooting 6:00. 5:40 does & fawns enter the field, 5:45 big 8 comes barreling into the field chasing everything, he chases a doe onto the neighbors to the east
. 5:50 the doe walks back on and low and behold he's back!
What a great time and experience with my girl, high fives and hugs were going on
