Default What a night!!!!

I did something this afternoon......something that I used to do about 100 times per year...but only twice in the last 2 years......I went hunting without a cameraman.

It felt odd for the first hour but then I found my old form when a big doe entered the field at 70 yards....followed by another an another. The wind had been a steady southwest all day....that was until the deer showed up. It did an about face and it didn't take long before the field was empty.

It was then I decided to move so I could play the wind better. As soon as I set up I noticed movement to my right............a 160" buck was standing 100 yards away and my heart rate increased dramatically. Then I spotted a bigger one joining him in the field.......soon followed by a couple of 130's.

These bucks were very content nibbling on the neighbor's beans and they totally ignored my attempts to call them in. While walking back to the truck I was checking in with my wife on my cell when I realized that a 150" buck was letting me walk right past him at 50 yards. Lucky for him it was just past shooting hours.

What a night!!! Sure felt good.....but tagging one of those bucks and not having it on film would have been hard to swallow.

I needed a chance to get out and relax.........MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

It is very relaxing to hunt by yourself after so much filming ........but when you do shoot something that you know would have been great footage......it pretty much STINKS!!!..........but you still have a great memory of a great experience!!!!!!!!

I have never hunted with a cameraman so if you need a break next season I can try one of your film places
