today we went over to state land at 6 am,it was just 2 of us,me and the newbe to deer hunting,my other buddy that got the spike yesterday had to go to that 4-letter word,work.as we were walking through the field towards the wood line,a doe jumped up.i had lead,so i stopped motion to the new guy,to head over to the side of the field, in the direction that the doe wanted to go.which he did.the doe wasn't too nervous ,she would put her head down,and then pick it up,knowing that i was there.i was trying to get a head shot,but she was slowly walking and putting her head down,the weed in this field in some spots go to my shoulder,and i am 6ft.tall.i really wanted my buddy to get his first deer,so i gave up on the shot,motioned him to move up alittle.the deer attention was still on me,i waited to he was in a good position,i started to move.the deermade a bound,then walked,anouther bound,not to fast thoughshe got near the wood line,and he had a good shot,nothing!!! he froze,she ran into the woods.i explained to him,that he had to fire the gun,the deer will not fall down just pointing the gun at him,lol.we got out at 12 he had to work,and i had a wood delivery to make.so i got done at 2 headed over to private land,i went to a different location,and wouldn't you know i had the same 2 yearlings come out,the 2 combined might go 50 pounds.still no mommy.watched them for about 1/2 hr.then headed home

Sounds like your buddy had buck fever he needs to go out more and see more deer to get over it.
Keep after them Tom you will get a buck soon.
I sat 4 hours this morning and 3 hours this after noon i saw two bucks one at 245 pm and the other at 330 could not get a shot, both had their noses to the ground on a fast trot ...

Nice going letting your friend try to get his first.I remember when it was hard to squease only because the gun was all over the place never able to put the crosshairs on the animal.He'll get it soon.At least he's seeing fur.

I finally got up to Hartford and got all my tags .Now I have to get my lazy butt in the woods .I'm going to try tomorrow afternoon to get up the hill for the first time in almost 2 yrs . Post to follow tomorrow eve.
