"i've had deer pass a 3 ft while on the ground."

I had the same thing happen to me early in the season. The little wind there was that morning was in my face. I was "out there" well before dawn and it was that time between "first light" and sun up when a nice 6 point ambled along side my open "blind". I heard something over my left shoulder and when I glanced that direction, I saw the buck and froze in place. When he got even with me, something made him aware that I was there because he kind of jumped sideways a little before just simply wandering on off. With the 'new' TxDP&W standards, he was too small to shoot so I had no choice but to watch him go.

My opinion was that he had just become awake from a good night's sleep and hadn't had that first cup of coffee to wake himself up yet. Either that or he had a lot of other things on his mind . . . like does. <grin>

But that's just my opinion and/or my $.02 worth!

swirling winds or thermals could have busted you,always use a wind checker the spray/dust style is what i use ,you will be surprised at how the wind varies from time to time and hour to hour.i use mine all day long

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
