Today was the second to last day of buck season, for Saturday marks the beginning of does season here in 2D, finally!
Since, I still have a few traps out to check, when I checked them today my father suggested that I keep going and make a horse shoe to drive deer back to him. So, after checking my traps (nothing in them) I snuck along a ridge line in the woods, then circled back like I was supposed to. Then as I was walking along a fence row looked ahead and saw two deer a good 300 yards out running as fast as they could. Cracking my scope up to 9X I got on them to see what they were, both antlerless and the one looked like a button buck, maybe.
So, that means at least I shall have deer to hunt, when Saturday comes around, instead having to count points.
My father also saw a deer; that he jumped off its bed as he was finding a place to sit. He, was not able to get a good look at it, but it at least had antlers he said.
