Be a shorter thread if we talked about the ones we actually got.
I cant...just can't go there.Air that laundry out. I’d love to read the stories. And it might help you sleep…
I never said I was sober.... I should have said a tree top on the ground from a recent logging.Need more info. Buck bedded in a tree top?? And aimed at the nose?
That was a good day!I wouldn't call it a stalk, but in 2019 @elkmagnet and myself were hunting Mule Deer in Wyoming. In typical Wyoming fashion the wind was whipping good. About mid-day we found a place to get out of the wind and snow to glass. After setting down and glassing for a while, my bladder decides I need to take a whiz. I walk around the bend for a little bit of a relief and mid-stream I notice two nice bucks admiring me from less than 75 yards away. I don't remember zipping back up, but I hunched over and quickly made my way back to magnet and my rifle. We inch back over to find the bucks still there, but while I was getting ready to shoot they bound away. Magnet takes off after them and I follow. The bigger buck stops at about 250 broadside and I cover my ears prepped for magnet to shoot. He turns the safety back on and says "You need to shoot the buck". I quickly got positioned and had the crosshairs behind the front shoulder when they bounded off again right as I flipped the safety. I was bummed, but quickly realized I had a hell of a hunting partner.
Those two bucks were bedded less that a 100 yards from us, likely for a couple hours or so. We still fared pretty well on that trip.
