    Moved to a new spot today and I'm finally seeing deer. This season hasn't been that great but im hopeful of this new spot.

    Well, yesterday was a perfect day here. Got in the stand at 530 am and had my target buck in there at daylight. He was at 17 steps but never gave me a good shot. Ended up seeing 12 doe after that they were all 8 yard chip shots but I elected to pass. Fast forward to 10 am. A doe with a buck chasing her cane by. I recognized which but he was a quickly made a shot at 31 yards. The shot looked and sounded good but I had very little blood. We ended up backing out and getting the dog after 8 hours. Long story short we never found him. He was back on my camera this morning and I hit him way low. Thankfully it looks like it’s non lethal. Here is the buck I shot.

    I’ll be back at it soon. Starting Wednesday I have three weeks off.

    I was finally able to get out this morning and score on this buck. It's been a while since I was able to get out since my son had his surgery. The deer we're up and moving everywhere this morning it was awesome.

    Same here, I checked for blood but nothing. If he doesn’t show up on camera again I might walk the property to see if he died
