I usually hunt from a blind with a feeder or hand dumped. This was the first year I hunted just sitting under a tree in a lawn chair. I now prefer it that way, just found where the deer were moving and sat. I'm in love now with open chair sitting.
I remember a time when my dad and I arrived at our camp. Sun was about to go down and he said "go sit next to tree and watch this wheat field, I'll unpack". I went over there with no big expectations but still hoping.
Before I knew it a big 8 pnt started cruising across the wheat field. I lined him up in my sights and BANG!!
He went down. Looked back, waiting for my dad to see what just happened but nothing.
I looked back across the field and saw a group of does, couldn't believe it.
I lined up the one I wanted and BANG!! She went down.
One small time frame but I memory that will last forever.
I learned that night how to field dress my own deer.
Two!! of them. I will never forget that evening.
