Last day of the season.......
« on: January 31, 2015, 09:47:26 PM »
Well today was the last day of deer season, it started out bad, had a stomach bug last night so I didn't get much sleep.  I slept through my alarm clock and woke up about 8.  My wife asked for some help with a couple of chores around the house.  I finally got to my hunting land at 1245, the wind was wrong for the stand I wanted to hunt so I took the one that the wind was right for, but it has been hunted the last three days by my son's.  At 4:30 still nothing and I was starting to think the season was going to end on a sour note....then about 5:15 I see an ear move, then more pretty soon there was 8 does and yearlings walking out of the woods into the field then about five minutes later two more joined them.  End of legal shooting hours was getting close, I kept waiting hoping a buck would show and then as it wound down I picked the largest, oldest looking doe and....now I will be having tenderloin and biscuits for breakfast!

Congrats on the doe, Heflinsi! My experience hunting in the afternoon, is that the deer normally start moving just before dark.

That's a great way to end the season. With each bite you will be glad that buck didn't step out.   

Glad you ended the season on a positive note.  Now for next season!

Great job on getting a doe down to the wire!   ##$%#11

I hope I can do the same in Arkansas this coming week.

You have great sight in seeing an ear move from your stand!     %^$^

I am officially done with my deer hunts.

Saw lots of deer mostly does and young bucks in Arkansas, BUT beyond 60 yards I am willing to shoot one.

Looking towards getting food plot ready for planting.      %^$^
