« on: September 26, 2018, 12:20:52 AM »
This past weekend was the early antlerless season and I was able to finally get out on Sunday evening. Since we had opened corn fields not too long ago I figured getting into a fence row at the end of one of the fields and waiting on something to come out of the corn would be my best bet. So about 5:30 I headed out in just my barn clothes which was just a pair of jeans and a t shirt and my orange vest, as I got to end of the corn I looked around the corner and there were already 3 deer feeding on the cut headland. Now in my rush to get out there I may have taken a few too many steps and been caught in the open, luckily it was 2 doe fawns and a button buck, they saw me but didnt seem to care or didnt know any better. After a few minutes of standing and watching them hoping they do something I peek farther around and see a head and neck sticking out past the corn and I could tell it was a good size doe so I eased back so she wouldn't bust me and continued to wait. A few minutes later the 3 younger ones went down one of the open passes down the middle of the corn and I decided to sneak down figuring they would be working away from me and I might get a shot. As I got a 3 or 4 rows from the opening I could see one of the fawns coming back my way so I tucked into the row as best I could. Just as luck would have it she came right out and spots me at like 10 yards, she proceeds to keep coming and then starts stomping at me and then is followed by the button buck who could care less. As the little doe continues to work her way down wind of me stomping the whole time I see the doe coming and all I think was this was a nice walk. The doe comes out and shes got me dead to rights, starts bobbing her head stomping but she keeps coming following the kids until shes down wind too, at this point I'm like screw it so I shoulder the muzzle loader and then they take off. They kinda half run to the south about 50 yards and she stops, turns around stomps and then starts blowing at me and I decide that its time for that to stop, I settle the cross hairs and take my shot. She wasn't the biggest doe ever but shes gonna be tasty, and isn't gonna snort at me again.

Good job!  It's great when a plan comes together.  The early doe season is not open in my area this year, again.  Wasn't open last year either.

I can just see you not moving and being as still as possible.  Not believing they are walking past you like that.  Good story and some good eating.   @--0--0123

Congrats on a fine doe, I love the story and your hunting outfit was awesome, and you didn't have to spend 300 bucks on the fancy scent blocker outfit and no stink spray.  @--0--0133

Congratulations, sometimes it works out despite the fact that it shouldn't.  Enjoy!
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there

Well I do have the scent blocker suit and the scent killer spray but on that day I guess faded jeans and barn smell did the trick.
