My buck encounter last week or so was a buck running full speeding after a doe who was also running full speed trying to get away from him. I had no shot at him until about 35 yards, and even then he was still moving at it wasnt worth it to risk injuring him.
Yesterday I had a buck (not monster but still a nice deer) walk out onto a crp path and just hang out for a little while. He looked left and then right. Had he made a left turn down that path 15 yards, he would have walked right into one of my shooting lanes. Sadly he calmly and slowly made a right and walked the opposite direction of me. Even with no shot, it was great to see something as opposed to nothing.
Anyone else getting out there soon ?
