Well, I was shut out due to the inability of the deer to find me. My, buddy and I hunt a nice farm that borders a medium sized river. Fortunately, I have taken a doe and a seven point with my crossbow during the archery season because I had no chance opening morning. The farm owner let a bunch of his relatives hunt.....his right he owns it. I had a guy east of me 150 yards away, another 150 yards to the south of me on the river bottom and a third 180 yards to the west of me.........in short, they had me surrounded. The only way for the deer to get to me was to cross the road a quarter of a mile away and come down the fence line. Which they didn't.
Guns have only two enemies, rust and politicians!
Deer are amazing creatures....so please don't burn the sauteed onions and I'll pass on the steak sauce, thank you.
