Default Whats your preference?

if you could choose, what would your preference for encounters be?
seeing the deer come from 100 or so yards slowly and diligently down the predetermined trail through your shooting lane.

or see them with just enough time to turn to a good solid shooting stance, determine hes is going to present a shot, and having just enough time left to draw, bleat and shoot.

Scenario A. That way by the time the deer gets to me I will be calmed down enough to shoot.

well im gonna have to say mostly for an average deer big body typicle 8point or big doe i would prefer to watch um come in and injoy watchin um come in, yeah im out there to kill it but i spent more time out there waiting for that moment so i like to enjoy the wildlife
on the other hand if it was some big out of the normal 12 to 16 point or bigger than i would want it to pop up and give me just a few seconds to make a shot because if i had one like that coming in i would probably fuge up and loose my composure in exsitment and make a bad shot tring to hurry a shot or something stupid

I get all unraveled when I am in the stand with a bow and I see a deer, period. and I have had both scenarios to contend with. I have taken a buck after he spent about 10 minutes running around my hunting area chasing a doe, never spending much time in a single spot. after that much time watching them I finally calmed down enough to take a 20 yd shot. and early this season, quite the opposite. I took a buck from a Bachelor group of 2 that happened so fast it was like a blur and everything seemed to go into instinctive mode.

its a tough call to make as a preference, I guess whatever ends in success.

boy that is tough I would like to say the first one so I would have time to calm my nerves but It usually just gets worse for me
I have had good luck with the quick draw steady shoot
so I don't get the time to get all worked up

For me it's option 2.
I have gone through the steps in my head dozens of times. When the time comes I just do it without thinking.

Give me about 30-seconds and I'm good. If they come from a long way, I tend to get sleepy and fall out of the tree.
