Default I Hate It When

You walk out of the yard before dawn, bump a large bodied deer, go on another hundred or so yards and bump your target buck for the season. My thought was, oh well, keep moving it is getting light and there is another quarter mile to walk. Fifty yards down the trail I bump probably the second biggest buck on the place. Well, at least I had a nice walk on a beautiful morning...

What makes it worse is when you bump them and they run to the neighbors land during gun season.

Or when you pass a nice young buck with excellent genetics and he jumps the fence to just get shot within 5-10 min. That's a whole nother thread.

Buddy leased a place thinking about buying it one year and turns out a day lease was on one side! I don't know how many bucks we let walk only to hop the fence and get cut down! He passed on buying that place!

I had a place in Michigan where I watched a mature 8 point across the property line one morning. He was walking down a treeline for a while. He came close to my property line, but instead of crossing onto my place he turned and went away from me into the timber. 30 minutes later a year and a half old forkhorn comes out where he went in and I was watching him. He walked the same path back that mature 8 had come down. He walked about 30 yards when the neighbor blasted him. To this day I do not understand how you let a Mature deer walk and blast a young one...

I don't use a stand. I was walking to the wheat field in hopes of catching them coming off to bed down. I guess my hunting clock was about a half hour out of whack. The guy on the left is my target. He moves between our place and the neighbors. At least I know that he is still alive.

I let a buck and a doe walk at Hagerman just to see another hunter shoot them both. They were a trophy to him so I shouldn't have a problem with it.

Sounds like you need to move your stand to the back porch.

It is a self imposed rule that there will be no hunting near the house. We do enjoy watching wildlife and I have been able to take some excellent photographs from inside the house and on the porch. They seem to know that we won't bother them and we can move around the yard with deer within forty yards of us. But when I step out of the yard and they will run off.

The buck on my avatar was taken a week ago Friday. On the way to the stand in the ranger, he had bedded down in some cedars right by the road about 600 yards from my set up. He busted out of the cedars, crossed the road and ran over the mountain. I thought there was no way I was going to see him. Shot him about 2 hours later.

That little section of fence is a half mile long. Zoom lenses will do that to a picture.

It won't let me open it even when logged in. Might have to be friends to gain access.
