Parker`s going to post them as soon as he gets them. I`ll tell the story though. I`ve been hunting Washington county for five days, minimum 10 hours a day, with some all day sits, and I took a big doe opening morning, and only saw another fawn the whole time. I had never hunted this property before.
Come thursday, one of my buddies in Crawford county invited me down where I usually hunt, and took a 10 pointer 2 years ago so I jumped on it. Well, I`m in my climber 30 feet up overlooking this river bottom, of which I`m going to get pictures of when I go back. 6:25 comes, and it`s too foggy to see anything. 6:40 comes, and I see a big bodied deer with it`s head hiding behind a tree, I figured it was a buck headed for the joining field where the does are always at, he was broadside at 50 years, but I could`t see his head with the fog, and him in the brush. He`s heading to the field, so I grunted him with the VECtor, he immediately turns around, and circles at 30 yards, still to foggy to make out the rack, but now I know he`s a buck. He`s bustin through brush trying to find where the grunt is coming from. I keep on him with the VECtor, and a bleet once in a while, and he circles again, just busting through the brush mad as heck!
Now second time he makes his round he~s walking away straight towards the river, and the fog had lifted just enough for me to glance the rack, and decide if I get a chance I`m dropping him. He stops 5 yards in from on the river @ 75 yards, and turns broadside. I shot, he busts back towards me, and I see him rolling at 25 yards, I made a beautiful shot, both lungs, he came 50 yards towards me. This was 7:00 so I know I played him at the least 20 minutes. Most exciting 20 minutes of my life!
Not the biggest deer I`ve taken, nor a shooter in a lot of peoples` eyes, but I couldn`t be happier!
Parker thanks a bunch! Also, as I predicted in my U2U to ya, my 17y.o. killed his first deer ever(a doe in the field) this evening. What a day, one I`ll always remember, as will he.
I told him, that I told the guy that I got this VECtor from that you were going to get that monkey off your back tonight in the tripod in the field, he didn`t believe me so I showed him the U2U from this afternoon.
