    Called in a shooter this morning to 60 yards. He got in some willows and was just sitting in there. I was looking directly into the sun and adjusted to see if I could see him. He spotted me and took off blowing.

    There is also a nice 8 pointer pushing does everywhere in the swamp. Closest they got was about 75 yards. He does not care about anything else but does right now.

    Have to handle a few things for work and then I will be back out.

    Seen three bucks so far. One possible shooter...out of range. Had a hot doe come by with two bucks following.

    Ended up seeing 5 bucks and 3 does. Could have shot a small buck but didn't. My brother shot this buck this afternoon from the ground. 79774.jpeg 79772.jpeg

    So... I been trying to figure out my thoughts on something....

    Saturday night I messed up... either my bow is off and I didn’t realize or I made a bad shot. Either way, the biggest deer I have ever seen in my life is either wounded or dead... I found very little blood and after he ran onto the neighbors the odds of finding him (even if he were dead) were essentially nil...

    This has been eating me alive since then. I hate wounding animals... I know it’s a part of hunting but it doesn’t mean I have to like it
