I hear a lot of shooting yesterday and I saw 9 doe, one unknown big deer running through the trees and a huge bodied spike buck with 2 inch spikes. Do to hesitating when 7 does were coming closer and not shooting because I thought I would get a closer shot, I lost my opportunity when they went back the way they came and thick brush blocked a clear shot and I don't shoot through brush. My butcher told me on Friday that they had less deer in theirs shop this year in the first 4 days of rifle season than they took in the first day last year, and this shop does big numbers of deer, they get them in from 3 counties. The rain stopped a lot of people from going out.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
