Ouch. I was out today and had a buck tempting the fence before dawn and then had 5 doe show at the other stand....always just out of reach for me
sad thing is I don't even know where the buck went, he literally just vanished (I think he went back behind the tree line and retreated behind the trees rather than in front like he came).
But, to have that buck tempt me would have been even that much more frustrating. At least you got some brownie points for shopping, I hope
