    So as I am walking into my stand this morning, the flash on my game cam goes off when I am about 150 yards away. I stop and wait for a good 5 minutes, nothing else happens so I go on into my stand. About half way there, I hear a deer run off towards the south. I go ahead and climb into the stand, and sit for the morning. When I get out of the stand, I check the cam to find that this was the deer that was in there this morning. I know to most it's not a big deer, but, it is the best deer we have gotten on cam this year. Sometimes you get lucky, and sometimes you don't!!! :shrug:


    P.S. My stand is about 20 yards straight in front of the deer.

    Bummer- that is something that would happen to me- Keep plugging away! At least you know you have a shooter walking around out there!

    Doesn't matter if he see's you, here's you, or anything else...as long as he didn't wind you he'll be back around.

    Here's another pic I got of him a couple of days ago from a different cam. I have a stand 20 yards off of this trail, and had hunted this stand the night before. He's hanging around and hopefully he will start moving more in the daylight hours!!!
