Morning of the 16th - doe comes in (45 yards) looking over her shoulder. Within 5 minutes I have one doe, 3 bucks, and a yearling running all around me. Closest they came in was right at 40 yards but most of the time they stayed at around 60ish. Bucks were a big 8 (120 - 130 class - brain couldn't process with all the activity), a short 6 (nice body size but had really short tines), and a 1.5 year old forkie (totally clueless but had to run with the big boys).
Stayed in the immediate vicinity for about 10 minutes total and never offered a shot other than the big 8 broadside at 65 yards. They finally left along the edge of a pond for another strip of timber about 200 yards away where they continued their chase. Doe was hot, just not ready to stand.
Later saw a lone yearling, then a doe with a yearling in tow. No shot opportunities.
Went back to the same location on Saturday with a rifle and only saw one doe w/ a yearling - and they were not in the mood to walk. They were on a fast trot at 80 yards and not about to slow down. Was thinking something might be on her tail, but nothing showed.
