Close Encounters PYP

Quick update on my progress over in the land of cheese, beer and big bucks. We made it out this weekend, and it was a rather unusually slow weekend. I was able to see the most deer but activity was way down.

Sunday morning around 9am  I heard a the telltale sign of deer crunching leaves and as I look over my shoulder one was trotting towards me, head down around sixty yards. I grabbed my bow as fast as I could and got ready, at this point he was only 10 yards away when he stopped behind a tree. I started to draw back while he took a step forward and looked dead at me, right in the middle of my draw cycle. Super bummer! The whole encounter lasted for 15 seconds.

He was a ultra wide 10 pointer, I estimated pushing mid 150s. I’m kicking myself with the what-ifs but in the end, there is nothing I can do. A doe and another 2 1/2 year old 8ptr and that was all she wrote for sunday morning. It’s going to be a couple weeks before I can get back out to Wisconsin, but I am chomping at the bit to get into some rutting action!

Hope everybody’s doing well and be sure to send us your deer pictures to so we can proudly display them on our 2013 buck board!
