i am surprised you wasn't told to wait till next year, like i was told....lol... but anyhow i am glad you got out there. i hunted every weekend and shot a doe last saturday.plus, i also enjoyed tracking deer and had learn alot from what i had read and put it to my tracking. we were on a track of a buck yesterday and when my buddy went up the hill near a field. i follow the track and it started up the hill where my buddy was. then i heard him shoot, i kept following the track an met my buddy at the top. the buck had came out and was in a full run. my buddy missed it. learned alot this season with my flinter and tracking deer. looking for next year.
