    I know you think you're a great hunter and all...
    But you are up against a critter that is full time 24/7 survival orientated. Eluding hunter after hunter. Coyotes , and cars. Smaller bucks challenging him for dominance , (and they're all smaller than that bull) and who knows what else he's dealt with in his vast experiences.
    He's no push over. No chink in his mental armor like some mere twelve point on a reckless teenager on Friday night chasing girls blindly mission, or bumbling into unforeseen trouble by throwing caution to the wind.

    He had you pegged long before you saw him test you by sneaking through the first time. Lest you toss an errant arrow out of shear buck fever. And , he has your effective range limit figured to the inch. (Obviously.)
    Till you can control your emotion and at least act nonchalant , he's going to keep picking up your predatory vibe of coveting of him , and that rack. While simply remaining out of range and aloft while refusing to yield the field to a mere mortal human.

    Be careful exiting , and returning to the area. He might get too annoyed at your shenanigan's and decide to run you off. And with antlers like that to skewer you with...(Shudder)...

    You might want to let someone know where you are hunting , just in case you don't return when expected. No sense leaving your crossbow out there exposed to the elements too long should you get carried off on those antlers to somewhere secret only Beau knows..

    Don't forget the Tink's "lactating doe" scent.

    Live from work until this evening. Dad reported a nice 8 point, a 4 point, and a spike this morning. Sounded like they were in their casual feeding routine and not pre-rut chasing/defending territory/etc. Guess I'll wait another week to try the buck decoy?

    I'm sure you're bummed right about now about not spending a few extra hours at the range extending your max distance.

    If only you had The Kruncher....

    I usually try to follow this simple flow chart for understanding women, it’s imperative you follow this whether married or dating. Eventually it all works out... [​IMG]

    I thought so too but T knows his s^^^ and I'm sure he has a history with this particular, former, stud. He's obviously on the decline and probably should be culled.

    For all of you who have been asking the question.....Will the rut be early this year?

    Well here's your proof, it's started!

    It's nice to be the little spoon sometimes.
