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 Iíd 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.

Maybe. But really donít think I did. He went around a bend. I went to where I lost sight and searched for blood with no success. Followed the wood line where he had to go. Made arches through the woods. All with no success.

Maybe he was hit a tad high. Look for buzzards. Sounds like you put in the work trying to find him though. Hunt that area this evening and see if those does come back out.


It's not how you fall, It's how you get up.
