Man that old doe was smart! The fawn stopped and looked back for 5-6 min and thought momma would eventually come in. But she only came to 45 y then turned and circled the other way. Didn’t spook, but apparently knew something wasn’t quite right! : (

Well, I had a little “incident” last night and so I played “guide” this morning and set up Dan, Victoria and Curtis/son up in their spots on the property, since I had them marked on my GPS. Dan and Victoria are in climbers and Curtis/son on ground.

I was in no condition to hunt(more on that later) so I went back to camp after getting them set up.

One of the great things about this event every year is the TEAMWORK! Somebody needs help tracking, dragging or field dressing a deer they call us and we figure out who is hunting nearby. Then whoever is closest will go to help. If nobody is hunting nearby we round up a group from camp and head out- like last night.

Always fun being in camp and meeting some new people. Thanks for everyone who helped to make this hunt possible. It was a great experience to introduce my son, Dalton, to what hunting is about. Helping landowners, hungry folks, fellow hunters, and having fun in the process. We weren’t on the road for 5 minutes and he was already talking about coming back next year.
