I struck out this season. The first deer I saw was the evening of the last day, driving home in the pitch black, 2 does and a yearling ran in front of the truck. But, I got the **** scared outta me. We were sitting in a blind at a migration trail, heard something behind us but never saw anything, and when we went to leave we found cougar tracks in the snow not 25 yards behind us, just at the crest of the hill. Big cougar tracks. Scared the living **** outta me.
If women can have a closet full of shoes, I can have a safe full of guns.
So far I've seen 4 deer from my car while driving home from hunting or going TO my spot.
Haven't seen a damn thing on the usually 'active' game trail, but we did see a few fresh prints in the area. Quite a few doe but there is at least one buck in the 150lb-170lb range. Once our schedules 'align' he'll be mine :P.
