I went out Saturday night for my "final hunt of the season". Saw about 15 deer, but they were 400+ yds away. On my way out of the field I did happen to get about 30 yds from a doe without her knowing. It had been rain/sleeting all afternoon and it was getting dark and my silouette was hidden by the woods behind me and the wind was PERFECT- at my face. I came to full drawl but decided not to shoot b/c of her probably being pregnant. I had already decided before I started the hunt that I was only going to take a buck. There was one buck in particular that I wanted to take out b/c his rack was deformed and he just didn't look right. Never saw him though.

Time to start shed hunting and I'm hoping to FIND MY FIRST ONE EVER! Geez, shed hunting is harder than it looks. :)
