Standing 40 yards is probably the biggest buck I have ever seen on public hunting grounds. I jumped out of my truck and pulled up on him. Now my bow has three sights on it. They are set at ten yards, 20 yards, and 30 yards. The deer being at 40 yards I was a little unsure if I could hit him.
I have enjoyed hunting since I was six years old, but the second deer I killed is one that I will always remember. The previous year I missed one of the biggest bucks I had ever seen. From that moment on, I planned to hunt every day that I possibly could to try and take one more shot at the deer I had missed the previous year. Finally, hunting season arrived and the day came when the bucks started to come out. Patiently, I waited all summer and now it was the time to strike.
Squirrels bring disappointment to even the most experienced and patient hunters. After hearing squirrels until just before dusk, I finally had a deer come into sight. My arm hairs raised with my excitement, I whispered to Curtis that I see quite a few deer, just on the other side of the minute hump in the field. He pulls up his rifle to get a better look at the deer, at the same time I do. We both say, we think the closest one is a doe.
I started to walk over to the deer and evaluated that he was a nice seven-pointer. I shot my first buck ever! Everything in my body started to speed up and the feeling was incredulous. My dad and I dragged the deer to a place where we could gut it. Right after that, we registered him with the DNR and it was an amazing feeling to register the deer as a buck: my first buck ever.
When bucks are in a rut they will make scrapes on little trees or bushes and use their antlers to make scrapes on the ground like moving leaves around, they do this to mark their territory. So other bucks don't come into their territory and take their does away. The approximate size of the land the deer stay on is about a mile square all the time. Unless they get spooked by something or someone. Deer stay in a mile square because that is their terriory.
As I thought about what kind of gun I wanted, the biggest buck I had ever seen showed up about 100 yards away from where I sat. That was my ticket to twenty dollars. I raised up my gun, put the deer in my crosshairs, and sat there for a second to admire it’s beauty. That‘s not all I noticed though. The deer had red eyes, and below the red eyes, on the ground, set an AK-47 with a weird scope.
This pride comes from knowing how hard I have to work. Deer hunting includes much more than the split second of firing a gun in the woods. The hardest part of hunting may be waiting what seems to be an eternity until the start of the season. While I wait, I have many things to do in preparation for the hunt. The first thing that needs done is scouting for stomped down popular deer trails that are little more than narrow paths of mud and feces.
Overall, my hunting experiences have been wonderful. Hunting might not be fun when I am bored in the stand, freezing cold, or melting in the heat, but as soon as I view the prize it all becomes worth
That when the adrenaline becomes a intense as you wait to see if the shot you fired hit the deer. As you climb down your stand to your mind starts racing thinking of the deer you just
We were in the field a half hour before light. I was optimistic that I could get a descent shot off that morning. After it got light ... ... middle of paper ... ...sed the cross hairs on its chest and took a shot. The deer jumped straight up in the air and then started running right at me. I racked another shell in the chamber.
