I went for a quick hunt after work tonite at a place I have just down from work. I was sitting on the ground in some red cedars leaning up against one. Had a smoke and then gave a few grunts. A bit later gave another couple of grunts. A minute later I heard a deer a little ways in front of me and thought he seen me and took off. I gave one more grunt and half a minute later, he stepped right out in front of me, I didn't hear him coming. No time to study him but I knew he was a mature buck just by the size of him so took the shot, 12 yards. He dropped on the spot. He was quartering a bit toward me and up a bit of a grade, the arrow went in and up through his backbone and out. They look awful big when they are that close. I called my wife and she brought my deer cart but I could not get him on it, but my buddy came and we dragged him out. It was only about 100 yards or so to my truck. Good thing. Funny how they don't seem to mind all the noise from the traffic going by. When I hung him up at home he was 218 lbs. dressed out. I'll try to post a pic but my photobucket is acting kinda funky lately?
