I had last week off to archery hunt and had the largest buck that I have ever seen come in to 35 yards . This buck was the "target" buck from my trail camera . As I watched him approach from the thicket to broadside in front of my stand all he had to do was take three more steps to be in the shooting lane . Nerves were calmed and just as the bow was about to be drawn I saw movement on the bench below the buck . A yellow labrador retriever was trotting through the woods nose to the ground . The buck went on high alert and in short order bounded out of range and out of the danger zone. Game over for me ,but at least I was able to see the buck that has eluded me for the last 4 years . Hope to meet him again with a better result . I sure wish pet owners would be more responsible !

Four years? Holy smokes can we see pics? Sorry about your luck. I was on a bean field this year. A buck stepped out then some trespassers walk past with two dogs. I waved and they didn't change their behavior. Needless to say the buck spooked.

i Hate trespassers!! especially here in 2b they think that any land left is theirs to do as they please. well there would have been alot more land if you hadnt plowed it all under to build you stupid houses now stay off our land

DL , I will try to dig the trailcam photos up . A dandy for sure and still safe ! The fellow that I hunt with keeps the bucks in a file and this stud of a buck has been eluding us that long .

Here is a link from the summer . Keep in mind that this is the biggest buck that I have had an encounter with while archery hunting . Quite a thrill , even though an arrow did not fly !Yes I know that most have seen bigger ones , but this is as good as has gotten for me. Thanks, doggie !!!

I suppose your house is on stilts with the Monongahela River running beneath it?
