    I went on my first deer hunt this november. Got in the stand a t 6:30 and sat till 12. I had a small button buck come in behind be but I had no shot and he left. We went back to the lodge for lunch. And got back in the field after lunch. We saw a 4 point and a doe 70 yards from our stand but they never came closer. Sadly to say I struck out but I am hooked on bowhunting and can't wait to get my first deer
