This weekend was my first deer hunting of the season. I went out yesterday morning; nice morning but no deer wandered by. Did see four walking in while still pitch dark. They were bedded only about 75 yards off the road and I caught their eyes with my light. At first I wondered what they were (eyes so close to ground) but then they stood, looked at me for about a minute and then took off.
This morning was beautiful; 37* and still. I saw seven deer this morning all but one at 30 yards or closer and two at about 5 yards. Two small bucks, but no shooters. This afternoon I saw nine, all does and all within 25 yards, except one (different stand). All in all a very nice start to the season. M/L on the 15th & 16th in Ky and bucks might be cruisin' by then.
