got a doe this evening (video added)

Post  soil on Sat Oct 11, 2014 10:01 pm

i checked a camera at 11 this morning and had 12 does on this hillside last night, so i headed in tonight with high hopes of connecting on one.  i got in the stand right at 4 and had the first doe and 2 little ones enter the field at 5.  by 6:15 i had 11 does in the cut corn with a few of the smaller ones in range.  finally one of the bigger does caught a whiff of something she didn't like, from directly upwind of me from 50 yards out!  luckily for me, she threw her head up and slow walked right toward the base of my tree.  once she got in close and never picked up enough scent to booger up she fed out quartering away and i got a nice chip shot under 20 yards on her.  double lunged her in the center of the frame while videoing myself and managed to get back on her 80 yards later to watch her tip over.  i should note, it's youth gun season this weekend in illinois and i was wearing my orange in the stand but had taken it off back at the house as the dirty work was beginning.  Lana and Mila enjoyed tracking the blood and Lana liked looking at the guts.  Mila went in to the house for that part! 

the view from the stand.  my camera that i get a lot of my pictures i post on is in the top left of this pic.  can barely see it on the double trees.  there is a weedy water way between this section of field and the next one over that the deer love to travel down.  now that the corn is out i got less pictures of them coming right past the camera.  more of them were out in the field.  so i hung a cedar limb and i'm hoping for a scrape to pop up there so at least the bucks may still come by close. 







poppy was happy to see one of those crop eaters bite the dust!
