And shot me one.
Seen a six point, two does and 8 turkeys early yesterday A.M.; let him grow up.
Went out about 4:30P.M., and the woods came alive about 5:00. Saw about 7 does and three nice bucks that were scaring them(150yrds). I blew my doe call at one of the bucks. He stopped, looked straight at me and kept on walking.
He must have liked what he heard, because he looped around and came out about 80yrds from my stand. Dropped him with Rt’s favorite “neck shot” at 35yrds. 8pt and about 150 pounds.
This morning at a diff. stand, I saw a small 4 or 5; didn’t pay much attention. Three does. I’ll go back to yesterday’s stand this P.M.
I’m going to try again to see if I can post a pic.October 20, 2013 at 2:17 pm #7237

I can download the e-mail pictures, but can’t get them to post on here, so I started a new thread titled “ternera1′s deer, and copied the post from My Fellow Hunter, so people can see the picture and the entire post.

Thanks Rt: look at what I just made happen. I’ll probably won’t remember how to do it again, but I’ll keep trying. That’s the one guys.October 20, 2013 at 10:12 pm #7263
ternera1 hope it is ok if I add my story to your thread. Congratulations on the nice buck!
ML season opened here in Maryland last Thursday. Had to work on Thursday but took Friday off to head to the eastern shore to hunt at Blackwater NWR (opened just in time after the government shutdown). I was hoping that I could take a nice sika doe to go with the big stag I took three years ago for the wall. Because the refuge has been closed with the government shutdown we could not scout this year. The good news is that we have had a lot of rain, so based on years past we had a good idea of where to go and it was full moon and clear so we could see fairly well even at 4:30 in the morning when we went in. I had a good tree marked on my GPS that sat on the edge of a frag bed with a pine woods on the other side. I headed for my spot and found what looked like a better spot about 30 yards from the tree I had marked from previous years to I moved there. I am glad I did because a nice doe came trotting thru at 30 yards and if I had gone to the other tree I most likely would not have seen here. The ML roared and she ran about 15 yards and piled up.
On Saturday morning it was whitetail hunting. Went to my spot in a valley and could here a buck chasing does behind me but could not see them (to thick). A friend of mine that was over on top of the next hill over texted me and said a young buck was chasing does up there. The buck (a young four point) was hanging out about 20 yards from him and every time he say a group of does he would head over and start running them. So my buddy only had a shot at him (to small to shoot) and because the leaves are not down yet he could not get a shot at the does because the buck would kept chasing them away. I kept watching the top of the ridge hoping he would chase the does over toward me. The I heard what I thought was a deer wheeze directly behind me. I slowly turned, but could not see anything. A few minutes went by and I started to smell the scent of a rutting buck. I slowly turned around further and could see a buck walking directly toward me on a trail. (I was on the ground in a spot we call the truck seat). He was thrashing the pucker brush and I could not get a good look at him, but I assumed it was the young 4 point pissed because the does had spurned him. As he was less than 20 yards from me I grabbed my camera and got ready to take his picture when he came from behind the thick stuff. He stepped out and I slowly raised the camera to take his picture. I was watching the camera screen as he stepped out and I noticed that he was at least a six point and a big deer. I snapped his picture and he stopped and looked me in the eye. He ran up the hill a bit and stopped behind a tree. I quickly put down the camera and grabbed my ML. He was only 30 yards from me. He stomped the ground so I figured he was about to bolt. He stepped out from behind the tree and stared down at my spot again, I guess trying to figure out what I was. Big mistake because I could clearly see thru the scope he was an older dear and had six points. I fired and he unceremoniously rolled back down the hill to where he was when I took his photo. Photo’s below (assuming I figured out how to do the photobucket thing and link.
It was a great week-end.

Snap, I guess I figured it out. Hopefully I can edit the original post and put the picture in. Sorry for all the attempts.

No problem Jack; nice deer.
Thanks for the help Rt. My old lady is already planning another trip to the big O, so I can leave some deer for our son.
Here we go again. Yesterday P.M. saw this buck following a doe. Blatted, and the azzhole ignored me. Knew that I had a stand on the trail the doe took, so this A.M. I was there(gauntlet). 7:45 she walks by. Reached for my gun and it knocked my Kindle. It. fell off my shelf, hit the stand and went to the ground. She didn’t even look back; was more interested in getting away from the buck. 5 minutes later, there he comes on the same trail. Dropped him at 60 yrds.October 22, 2013 at 1:40 pm #7389
ternera, you’re starting to make me look bad!!!!!!!!!

Got me a “swamp buck”. We have a slough that is full of water when the Suwannee river decides to flood; then it takes months for the water to leave. Let it rain 3/4″, and there will be water for a week. There are some ugly looking racks that come out of there. I call them “swamp bucks”. This is a 135 pound lousy 5-pnt. Needed to be culled out.
Rt: jake proved himself today. Double lung shot. Made a U-turn and in the smoke didn’t see it happen. Jake wanted to go left, and I insisted the deer went right. Tied him up. Started tracking the old fashion way with little pieces of paper marking blood. When I got to a road that jake wanted to follow, I walked to him(felt like an idiot), let him loose and took him to the track on the ground. He took off and saw him 50yrds away over the deer. Gonna have to keep that dog.
