Default Thanks to all helpers makin progress. 1 more Q.

Hey, thanks to all that have given me tips over the past few days. This is my 3rd season hunting and up until this morning I had never seen a deer while hunting. But I used the wind to still hunt and jumped 4 DOES IN 2 HOURS!! The first I could of shot but being the first seen while hunting I didn't recognize her as a deer. In this area there are several patches of pines and hardwoods I know that it is good to hunt where these meet but which one should I hunt because of all the patches? the first patch I found was where I saw the first doe she was eating acorns right next to the pines. I wont be able to hunt again for a week and a half but next time I can should I hunt where I saw her or did me spooking her scare her off for good? I got within about 25 yards of her before i saw the white tail and she was off. I havent even got one yet but boy did my heart pound when I saw her. any more tips I can get would be awsome thanks again guys!

hunt it again. if the wind was right it ain't as bad as if she got your wind as well.

she didnt... just walked up on her. She didn't bolt right away. She lifted her head waited 3 seconds and the took off. Very exciting if I do say so myself. Also will she be their at dusk?

maybe. its REAL hard to say what will happen next even if you know the land and i don't. there may be other areas to feed prior to any place they may go after dark. it depends on the woods. small woods are a little easier to pattern, big woods not so. typically its morning there and evening elsewhere, oh 60% of the time. just my opinion
