Halloween screwed me!

Had the opportunity to get out of work a little early today, so I eagerly decided to get some much needed "my time" in to go hunting. I climbed in my stand around 3 and didn't see anything until I saw a doe around 4:30. While watching her, I heard some noise behind me where the land was recently timbered. At first I thought it was a squirrel, but then I spotted a nice buck! Ranged it at 56 yards, too far for a shot. The buck came close to 30 yards but never allowing a good shot. The next thing I know, my wife is calling me on my cell phone (oh why did I forget to turn the ringer off) She was calling me to remind me that I was supposed to take the kids trick-or-treating and to get out of the woods by six. Needless to say, the buck heard the ringing and was long gone by the time I had a grasp on what actually happened.

Re: Halloween screwed me!

That is a bummer. On the plus side you probably got some good candy to pick through.

If your lucky the buck didn't pick up on where exactly the sound was coming from so maybe he'll be back around.

That's why I use T Mobile, you never have cell coverage in the woods!

Or maybe, the buck is so used to the sound of cell phones that he wont really be all that upset.
