Zero happening at my feeder so decided to do a little walking this morning.
Spotted a really nice buck across the wheat field. Got to about 200 yards and had cedar between us. One half step to my left and he hauled tail. Eased around hoping he would stop. No such luck.
Kept going on my planned route through some woods towards the next wheat field where I’d seen a good buck a while back. Just my luck, I walk directly into another group of does with a nice buck. They scatter. I finally get a decent shot at the buck and apparently missed. He jumped like he was hit but I circled for an hour with no trace of deer, blood, hair or anything.
Hoping for a better afternoon.
