Got out bright and early and climbed up in one of my favorite treestands overlooking a small field. Had alot of excitement ad saw a few deer. Took a break from the archery stand I'd been spending most of my time in an sat with the rifle on the edge of a field.
I started off the morning with some doe bleating, and within minutes of my first call had a decent 8pt come cruising out. He paused in front of my camera for awhile, worked a mock scrape I had made, and then cruised back and forth across the field, with his nose to the ground. he left after several minutes but I rattled a few minutes after he'd left and he came right back out for another look. I managed I get a photo of him through the scope, should have some good trail cam pics as well.
Over the next couple hours I contined calling and rattling and had two more smaller bucks come out, one within about 15yds of my tree!
Then late morning had a doe come out and feed for awhile; nearly took the opportunity to fill my additional doe tag but opted to wait and see if a buck followed her out, but they didnt. I sat right til dark with no more action.
A little chilled but saw some deer and had a great day in the stand!
