I slept over my moms friends house to hunt the 13 acres they got behind the house. I woke up at 5:30 and was ready to go in the woods by 6.I was in the stand at about 6:30. I was surprised not to see anything at first light but around 8:00 I seen 2 or 3 deer about 80 yards away to my left walking away from me. I have no idea where they came from they just appeared. Then about 8:20 I look behind me and see a few deer walking a trail 50 yards away. I wasnt expecting the deer to be behind me so i had the wind in my face and the lead deer ( my buck) Winded me and started snorting and took off up the hill and kept snorting. The other deer just looked around and stomped thier feet for about 5 minutes then started walking back they way they came. Then the one that took off comes back and comes within 35 yards and I turned around and waited for a shot and i released. All the deer just scattered and i couldnt tell which one was him or if he was even hit.
So i waited till 9:30 and got down to look for my arrow and instead of my arrow i seen a white belly about 50 yards from where he was standing. No tracking at all, it was great. Sorry it was so long but thanks for listening.

Great story.! I am glad to see a happy young hunter on the boards. Come on let me see who has the guts to tell this happy kid who just got his first archery buck that it was to small..??? Nice buck kid keep up the good work and you will see as the years go on your deer will get bigger and bigger. But remember as big as they get they will never be your first Buck..!!!![up][up]
