As for the details - I was the stand around 5:50 this morning over an empty bait. I am hunting on a 20 Acre Farm - mostly house and a field, that backs up to an 80 acre farm with some crops. There are loads of deer, proven by the fact that 50 lbs of corn that was dumped at noon on Friday was totally gone by 6 AM Saturday.

6:30 Am had a scrub 6 pointer come underneith me - checkedout the bait and moved away. 6:50 had a second scrub 5 point come in - do the same and bed down about 40 yards from the stand. 7:00 had 4 does move across the field in front of a barn about 100 yards away.7:10 had two does come right in on the bait. Zipped one of does angling away. Deer ran out into the field and piled up about 45 yards from where I hit her. I am in a earn a buck zone and can shoot another Doe and have it count towards the extended season - which I plan to do. I have hunted this spot for 4 years and killed 16 does there, however I have only seen a nice buck while hunting there and that was at 150 yards. I will shoot a couple of more does there for the landowner so I can get us some more points.

Jordan, only one deer counts, so you got five points for the doe. Zip a few for the landowner, but they wont count towards the contest. When you tag in a nice buck,;) you'll add the amount of 1" points he has to your 5 points.
