Nice deer. Where at in mo do you live? I agree that the weather saved alot of deer this year.

Was supposed to try some 100 yard shots with my pistol for the hell of it for another thread, decided to go "hunting" instead. I put that in quotes because I went with my Mom and my 6 year old son. He's the mouth of the south, and doesn't know how the heck to whisper, but we still ended up seeing one at the very end.

We were on our way back to the house, my kid was running around in an open field screaming at the top of his lungs (I don't know why, he's just loud) an I saw the back end of a deer disappearing into some brush. When we got to the old RR bed on the other side of said brush, saw fresh tracks, like made in the last few minutes kind of fresh. They were headed up to the area behind my mom's barn, so we meandered that way. When we got up on the hill behind the barn, we looked down into the bottom below us, and I was able to see a light brown something moving right in the very edge of the tree line about 300 yards away. We stood and watched for a minute, because honestly I thought it was a branch with a bunch of dead leaves still clinging to it. And well, after a minute, it disappeared. I sent my son to the house, my mom and I hiked down to the tree line and looked around. Fresh tracks and a scrape. I wasn't about to shoot though, heck I thought it was a branch at one point, I wasn't about to take that chance not knowing what the heck I would have been shooting at.

Good call.

My son and I spent the last 7 days near Black River Falls, WI. Didn't shoot
because we never saw a deer that we could shoot at. Out of the six of us
only one person saw a single deer nice doe and he shot at it. The deer are
there, lotsa sign. They were moving between 10 pm and 2 am per the trail
cams. Meaning they are well fed and fat and with the very warm weather
we have had this fall not hungry at all. Maybe late doe season...
