So today is the first day of rifle season I was real excited about. Weather was right, temp was right, moon is getting better. I've sat 4 times since opening day and haven't seen a deer. Get in the blind about 3:00 pm... sat for about 2 1/2 hours and see two does headed towards the feeder. They are moving fairly quickly and keep looking behind them. I know what's coming so I open the window of my stand up and get the gun ready in hopes that the big 8 I posted pictures of a few weeks ago is chasing. The does make it to the feeder and keep looking at my blind (which was unusual because of the wind and I wasn't moving) but then kept looking behind them as well... and about 45 seconds later I see horns moving through the cedar behind them. Its a big 8, but its the one I want my son to shoot, not the one I've been hunting. I'm looking at him through the scope as he runs the does away and I hear the latch to the door on my box blind slide open (the noise didn't register with me at first, I just thought what is that god awful sound coming from my blind). About the same time I turn around to figure out what's going on, the door to my blind opens and two 12-15 year old kids are climbing into my blind. I almost couldn't believe what was happening. The chubby white kid falls backwards off my ladder onto the ground I scared him so bad, and the young black kid had a look on his face like "oh $HIT". I guess they didn't expect me to be in the blind and I didn't really expect anyone to come climbing into my blind 15-20 minutes before dark.
I asked them if they were trying to get shot... because if they were they were going about it the right way. I really didn't know what to say after that... I told them to get the eff off of the property because they were trespassing and didn't have permission to be there. I also told them how dangerous it was to be walking around deer blinds right before dark during deer season. One of them asked me where they needed to go and I told them I didn't care were they went but for starters to go back the way the came and don't ever come across the fence again.
Anyways, there was a post on here about ruined opening day hunts... well, even though it wasn't on opening day... this one takes the cake for me. I've had people walk through an area I was hunting, but have never had two people try to crawl in the blind with me.
Here's the does
Here's the buck chasing the does off
Here's the kids after I chewed their a$$
Needless to say... ruined my hunt and probably ruined the next few days in that area
