My hope is that deer is still alive. He came in to about 15 yds and I was set to draw as he passed broadside behind a large pine. But.....he came on my side of the pine and started to quarter in. At 12 yds he saw me, unmoving, in the tree. And the stare down began. He actually sunk to the ground against a bush......and stood there for what seemed an hour, but was likely 5 minutes, then he bolted. This was the day after a heavy gun hunt. I never saw him again. But I will be back.
I scouted the past two days, but did not get to check on the photo deer.
