Thank you everyone.
I have been out here taking it all in, so surreal when things unexpected happen to me while in the woods. Time to get him out and get him gutted.

Was walking in an hour ago and saw a Doe with two fawns in the back of my field real close to my stand. All the sudden an 8 pointer pops out right next to my stand. He rubs an apple tree and then a bush as he goes back into the swamp. Should of been there earlier but I always hate spooking deer in the dark. Up in my tree waiting for him to make a return visit here in the Thumb.

What’s everybody’s experience with bumping to deer while walking in? Should I count this hunt as a loss and let it sit till the cold from next week or what?

Really depends on the time of year, right now I wouldn't sweat it. The bucks move so much what happened 20 minutes ago is old news

The hot doe read the script perfectly but the only bad part is she didn’t find a big enough buck to chase her. She had a nice young 6 pt chasing her that gave me a great shot at 12 yds but he needs to grow up a couple more years!

I was going to shoot the doe but she wouldn’t stop where I could shoot so she got a pass too. The good thing is I now have a fresh estrous doe trail coming right to me. Just need a big buck to cut the trail and come in on a string!

Saw a couple more doe across the field also.
