I wanted to share this story with my fellow deer hunters. I decided to go sit in one of my tree stands yesterday at 11:00 am. I usually don't hunt in the middle of the day but had nothing better to do and you can't kill one in your living room. I had a grag line with doe pee and proceeded to enter the woods to my tree stand. I walked about 150 yards in and crossed a creek and heard someone walk in the woods behind me. I stopped to see who was following me in a saw a 6pt buck coming down my exact path with nose to the ground. He looked up at me a couple of times and I just stood their motionlesss. He put his nose back to the ground. I knocked an arrow he looked up. I stood still, he put his nose back to the ground. I raised an drew, he looked back up. I stood still, his nose went back to the ground, turned broadside and the rest is history. Shot him at 12 yards while standing on the ground. My hunt took about 6 minutes. Never had that happen before but was pretty exciting. You just never know what will happen when hunting these awesome animals.

Great experience! I've had the reverse of that happen about 5 times... Sitting in my stand till about 11am (got there before sun up) and the moment I get down from my stand a deer shows up. I think sometimes they get so curious that they actually go and see what's making the noise- not all the time though...

Congratulations! Sounds like you caught a perfect time during one of the rutting phases, the seeking phase,
this buck smelled your drag and decided he better check this gal out...
I'd love to see a photo if you have one.

:lol: I love it..


I couldnt help laughing while I read your post. Its great how sometimes it takes 2 weeks to see a deer and then another time you have a hunt like you did.

Perfect. Congrats on the buck. 6 minutes should be a record in my book.

My luck I would have been walking to slow that day and that 9 point would have caught up with me and beat the crap out of me.. :nerd:
