VERY nice!!!

jealousjealousjealousjealousjealous.....

I went out again yesterday, and this time by myself for the first time. It was a beautiful day, but (1) some nitwit was running his dogs down by the lake at the base of the cliff (yes, I was at the same place I nicked my buck last week), (2) a second nitwit was TARGET SHOOTING (illegal in that forest, by the way), (3) and from SOMEWHERE a bloody COW (and by that I mean the hamburger and milk kind, not a deer kind) was moo-ing. Must have gotten loose from one of the landowners in the general area.

On the other hand, it was about 45 degrees when I got there, got up to 71 in the afternoon (too warm, really, for the deer anyway) and I watched butterflies, listened to birds and bugs, sat in the sun, "talked" back and forth to a buck in the afternoon who was wanting to fight but couldn't quite get his courage up to come check me out and generally had a quiet, peaceful day.

Any day in the woods is a good day.

That's a dandy of a buck. I haven't seen a whitetail of that size in many years.
