No deer yet but very exciting morning. I couldnt sleep so I got into the woods at 4:30 a.m. On the way in, about 40 yards from the bait pile I hear some noises, sounds like some deer moving around doing something. My first reaction hide behind a tree and sit. The deer keep eating and never knew I was there. So now I realize I have to sit here until light so I can see my sight pins. Needless to say I sat in the rain, got soaked until about 6:15 a.m., little bit of light came out, 5 min later I hear a sneezing sound, realize the doe must have winded me, so I stood up to take aim, but the second deer (Mr. Buck I'm assuming) had already taken off behind my stand and I had no shot at the doe and she took off.

It wasnt a success but man never had my heart pound for over an hours before [up][up]

Deer are snorting at you, and you question why I preach trying to stay scent free?

[confused]

No way to beat a whitetails nose completely, but there are ways to limit your odor enough to keep them from going on full alert, snorting and running.;)

Doe didn't snort while I sat there for an hour, it wasnt until the wind shifted. If the wind didnt shift one of the two deer were in trouble. They are also lucky its not shotgun season because my slug is alot better than my arrow!!! :D:D
