I had a great evening last night. Went out to put up my corn feeder and prep a spot for my whitetail institute test seed. I figured Ill just use a rope and one of my screw in steps to hang the feeder. Since this was the first time using the steps I was messing around with them, got like 12 feet in the air started pulling up the feeder with 40 pounds of corn in it. I hear a noise that sounds like the tree just broke in half. I look up and theres a small 6 pointer that jump through some branches to the spot where I used to have a corn pile. Now the funny part comes, I decided I cant move and spook him so Im holding the tree with one hand and trying to hold up 40 pounds of corn on a rope with the other. Eventually I couldnt hold it any longer so I let it down slow. Didnt spook the buck, he just walked slowly the other way.

I am now definitely ready for the early archery season :) [up][up][up]

A few years back I had a spike come to my feeder when he heard me refilling it. It actually started to walk within 15 feet of me. During archery season he would watch me climb my stand. After about 30 minutes he would leave.He made a great decoy. Then one day he was gone.

I tried reaching for my cel phone, it has a camera built in and realized I left it in the truck.

Too bad I didnt have the bow with me ;)
