took off up behind the house to check a trail cam set up over a snowy well used deer trail. the trail is only about 100 yards from the house so i didnt really expect to get any pics except for in the middle of the night. got about 10 yards into the woods and see a deer digging around in the leaves about 60 yards away. figuring..i aint got nothing to lose, lets see how close i can get. wind was in my face, quiet powdery snow on the ground...and i just happened to have my camo pants and jacket on. so, slowly i start taking steps towards the deer...when all was said and done, 15 minutes later, i was standing 20 yards from that doe. i even had to go through the motions as if i was drawing my bow back, just to see if i would have gotten away with it...and sure enough, i did.
oh well....looks like i know where i'll be tomorrow, hoping to end this 18yr dry spell.

to be continued.........tomorrow

yep, had it happen to me also, just after bow season started, Saw 5 turkeys, and big buck, just got a glimps of his antlers and he was gone, what was bad is that I had just come down that path not 15 min before that. I am pretty sure its the buck that I took two days before rifle season started, so he didnt get away. :)
