Eye-shine in the dark
Question for experienced muzzleloader hunters. I went out Saturday morning at about 5:30 am at a State Game Land. Needless to say, it was pitch black. On the way out to my stand, there were the eyes of several deer shining in the dark along side of the trail. Apparently they bed down in the scrub along the trails frequently. I considered just sitting down stark still and waiting for shooting light to try and get a shot at one. I decided against it and bumped them out on the way to my stand, and saw nothing else the whole sit. Has anyone else seen eyes shining in the dark, and just sat down and waited for shooting light? Is it a good tactic? Thanks in advance as always for your replies.
The hare is smarter than the panther.

Reason: I wrote the wrong day. Muzzleloader season didn't open until Saturday
