Part 2/ Master of his Domain

Master of His Domain (Part 2 of 4)
By; David Orlowski
 
     Then as the leaves rustled a bit more Solomon's senses went on full alert as his eyes picked the terrain apart below. First a ear tip twitching behind some mountain laurel gave away the location of the deer, then ever so slowly they inched forward until Solomon could make out their outlines as they stood just inside the brush line. Finally after what seemed like minutes but actually was only maybe fifty seconds they moved forward. The doe took the lead as the buck hung back momentarily. But when he finally stepped out into the open it took Solomon by total surprise. There adorning that bucks head was a crown of antlers at least two foot wide and carrying twelve points. The antler tips glistened a bright white on top of bases that were gnarly and dark brown in color. 
     Shaking off the buck fever was tough but he finally quit staring at the antlers and adjusted into a better position and waited. The buck began moving slowly staying some distance behind the doe as she took lead. As they approached to a distance of ten yards Solomon nocked an arrow and drew the bow back as he waited for the buck to take a step. 
    But instead the buck stood completely still with his ears arched forward as he sniffed the air. He didn't detect any odors but a sixth sense told him something was wrong. The buck was suspicious even though he didn't detect the hunters odor. Without moving an inch, the buck waited. And so did Solomon. Solomon remained statue like until the doe stomped her foot causing him to glance in her direction. But in that second of distraction the buck had vanished by the time he looked back. And then a second later the doe snorted and leaped back into the laurel.
    Sighing, Solomon climbed down from his perch and headed down the hill toward the laurel. After a few steps and idea hit him. I''ll take up his track and see if I can locate his bedding area. Taking up the track at the point where it entered the laurel he started looking around. Soon he found a light yet distinct trail, with several big hoof prints heading around the hillside. Solomon followed, and when he reached the point of the hill he had to fight his way through the beech brush. Then he saw it, a big scrape and nearby a large bed nearly six feet in diameter. Smiling to himself, he turned and headed for home. He knew he'd hit pay dirt and would be there waiting tomorrow morning. You may have won this round, but tomorrows another day you wily whitetail.
