i agree .hopefully your patience will be rewarded.My advice would be to set up closer to the area,not too close just close the gap and wait .He may be back he may keep on walking or get get shot by someone else.since ya didnt shoot and spook the pellets out of him he'll probably stick around
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
