The Watcher

Isaac saw a legal 4-point buck, but unfortunately the deer spooked before he could get a shot at it.

See ya!

How familiar. I went down to our field with MR. weaver to go hunting.

We snunk up to about 30 Ft. of them.
THEN about 20 FT. away a BIG DOE.
I put the scope on her shoulder...... ............THEN I turned off the safety ....She was so close that at the sound SHE SPOOKED.GGGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Um, I never really grasped the point of all the orange clothing... maybe you could enlighten me? I know it's meant to make other hunters aware of you, but doesn't it also make you very obvious to the deer?

@Jo
Sounds exciting! Maybe next year, huh?

@Hannah
Actually, because of the way God made the deer's eyes, they don't see colors the same way humans do. Deer can't actually see the colors red and orange very well. Check out this website for more info: http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/9186.html

So I guess deer just mainly respond to movement, then?
