Re: How close
twice i've had deer close enough to touch without effort. First time I was sitting in the base of a triple tree that had grown very tightly together in the back, but left a great shooting lane in the front. I heard something behind me and after awhile it stopped, but i knew it was close. After a few minutes, nothing so i turned my head around to look through the 8 inch "crack" behind me and saw a deer nose in it, less than a foot from the back of my head! turned out to be a 5pt as he did eventually walk around the tree. my heart was just about out of my chest!
Second time was in a ground blind made of fallen trees and twigs. Had a doe come right up to the outside of it, less than 2ft from me......then she suddenly realized I was there, snorted doe snot all over me and took off.
Truly amazing memories that non-hunters will never understand.
