Good Day Hunting

No, I didn't get a buck, but I had a great hunt. Got into my stand at 1:30 pm and had to put up with intermitnent drizzle, but I got to watch the squirrels play, hawks fly in only to be chased off by crows. Then I sat in the middle of an owl conversation that lasted about 5 minutes. Hooting back and forth - not sure what they said, but I think he was trying to pick her up.

Then near dark a small 8 point buck came in and searched for a doe - I had hung some estrus wafers in the trees around me. Stayed for about 3 minutes coming within 5 yards of me.

At one point I said to myself, "I am going to take him" but reason prevailed and I let him walk. With a few minutes of light left an owl flew into the tree right in front of me. Now that is a treat seeing an owl up close.

Yep, a good day hunting.
