3 hrs , no shot
« on: September 17, 2007, 06:01:08 pm »
spent 3 hrs today on  4 does and a six pointer who showed up later. closed the initial gap and then we stayed within 50 yrds to as close as 1o to each other. at one point i had the six pointer on one side of a hemlock and me on the other but no shot. my adrenaline is just coming down especially with 5 noses and 10 eyes at the ready to bust me. was awesome.

That is great Jamie.  That is what it is all about anyway.  Justin

Pretty cool,now that is a real hunt. I can't imagine the wind holding that steady for so long. I have been busted several times this year by elk within minutes and before the shot was presented. The wind is very shifty in the Colorado mountains except very early and late in the day.   Kenneth

Jamie, had the "almost" same problem Monday evening. Two Doe's came in then another, a big one with a dark coat. It was a beauty. I was in the ground blind and for the next 10 minutes tried to get a shot without the other two seeing me. Well the big one finally snorted and bounded back and the other two followed. Maybe she scented me, don't think so, but any case I will stay out of that area today and let them settle down. There is always tomorrow and the season lasts till Jan 1.

believe me the wind doesnt hold. the difference in ct is the deer are fairly used to human presence. you just cant smell like a barrroom and go hunting. im usually covered in grass clippings and dirt from work so it helps. i love to stalk but like bob said , fresh meat is gonna taste goooooooood. going out again wednesday ;D

Jamie, what do you call a skipper? Never heard that before. Sounds like you have some good hunting spots.   Kenneth

Guys, a skipper, small deer, is like a small boy. You know, frisky, skipping around. Usually they ar 5 or 6 months old in September. May still have spots on their back side. Still hanging around their mother, looking ALL OVER THE PLACE. In the photos on my thread "What do we have here" is a doe and her skipper.

I'll pass on a "skipper" in the morning, but that "skipper" better be pretty small and too young to make it on its own before I pass on mom. Sounds like a scene from Bambi doesn't it? :)

I watched a fawn doe walk a few weeks ago. Had 5 or 6 opportunities over about 15 minutes but she was just too small. ;) She had better not give me the chance a bit later. >:D     Pat
