I have had similar situations Frigg. Paying to close attention to a deer to have a buck sneak right on in.

I was hunting a cedar grove on base that was really thick, but had a couple lanes where you could pull off a 20 yard shot. I had never seen a buck in the hollow, but there were rubs everywhere. Anyways, this was the first time the wind somewhat allowed me to hunt it. I say somewhat as hollows generally have swirling winds, so you have to shoot fast.

I set up under a cedar tree and clipped a burlap blind to some branches. It would have been really hard to see me even if you knew where I was. I seen movement behind some cedars to my direct front. It looked like a small buck, but I was locked in trying to figure out what it was when I heard some breathing behind me. I slowly glanced over my shoulder and no shit, 6 inches away from my shoulder was a little doe. She was with her mother and sister who were just behind her. I turned a little in my stool and now we were almost face to face. Her mother ended up walking away, so she followed. They never spooked and to this day I cannot figure out why my scent did not spook them.

GF, your putting the fever back in me to get back to deer hunting and fishing. I haven't been hunting in probably 20 years, except pheasant's once a few years ago. I just loved the hunt and being in the woods, it calmed me like riding the bike does now. Enjoy your hunt experiences your sharing. Never brought anything worth bragging about home.

My most memorable hunting was probably like most, I didn't kill anything but did have a really neat nature experience. Started out in my old Preadator tree stand. Loved that stand, bought it used around 1994, puts some ruck sack straps on it and it was comfortable. Get up the tree 30 minutes before sunrise early cool morning sitting in some hardwoods next to a small creek, absolutely nothing moving. Just before noon, I decide to come down a sit on the ground with my back to a tree and get a chew of Redman Golden Blend. I'd guess within an hour I see something out of the corner of my right eye just over the edge of the creek bank about 30 yards away moving so I move my rifle in that direction. The creek bank side is really clear, not grown up but about 5 foot down to the water so I'm not sure what's down there but I'm pretty excited. Within just a few minutes here comes a freakin raccoon. It's daylight, it should be sleeping, right. So I sit still, lower my rifle and watch it. It starts waddling my way, gets closer, closer. Little fella is at my boot sniffing me. I wiggle my boot, it moves back a little but not startled. Comes over and smells around my shin back toward my boot. I start moving around slowly just to see what it will do and it doesn't run off just kind curious looking at me. It never came up closer than my shin but it literally touched its nose on my boots and pants smelling. It looked physically normal, eyes, no foam discharge from mouth. I'm sure that doesn't mean something may not have been wrong with it? Anyhow, my personal cool moment in the woods.

Trophies are relative to the person. I hunt mostly highly pressured, public land, so to me any buck that is 4 years old is a trophy.

You were probably the first person the racoon ever encountered. That is pretty damn cool.

I have not been hunting all that much but when I was a kid my uncle would take me and my cousin duck hunting. We would sit in his 20' long jonboat with PVC cage and tank netting for camo. Put out the decoys. get the boat back into the buckbrush and willows and wait for light.

I could not use a duck call but my uncle is a pro.

I loved it. When the sun came up and the ducks were not moving me and my cousin would take nips off a bottle of peppermint schnapps until we were 3 sheets to the wind. Alternating hot chocolate and schnapps. We would fall asleep in the boat and when we got back my uncle would make us pluck ducks until our forearms would cramp. Usually stumbling off to puke every once in a while. My uncle and his best friend would laugh sip beer and smoke pipes by the camper.

My cousin died in a auto accident many years ago. I think about him a lot. I loved him like a brother, we were also best friends and never fought. Man we got into some shit. We hunt rabbits in the clearings and would cook them over a fire after doing a terrible job cleaning them. Surprised we did not get worms as many times they were not cooked all the way.

Have not duck hunted since his death.

Also I cannot stand duck. I have tried it a bunch of ways and it tastes horrible.

Sorry about your cousin brother. At least you got to spend some great times with him even if it was not as long as you would have wanted.

Also, I hate duck as well. Fun to hunt, but they taste like crap.

A couple years ago I harvested my largest buck to date in late November. He dressed at 189 lbs and was probably well over the 200 lbs mark prior to the rut. They say a buck can lose 25% of their bodyweight during the rut. Anyways it was a great hunt.

I had travelled about an hour north of my house for an opportunity to hunt a small property my buddy owned. He has never killed a buck on it, but has a ton of pictures of some really nice bucks. I figured I would show him how to get it done. My buddy told me some great places to set up, but I did not really want his advice. Remember he still has not shot a buck on his property. I did a little Google Earth recon and picked my spot. I drove up really early, so I could adjust if the wind was not right. I got on the ground and figured the wind was not perfect, but would work for what I needed to do and I headed to the tree.

When I arrived at the tree I realized there was a really old wooden stand already in the tree, so I decided to climb up and check it out (not a safe idea, but YOLO). It seemed fine and I figured this was the best spot. At first light I see four does walk out into the field in front of me at 105-120 yards. I had a doe tag, but I was waiting for a buck. I had already killed two does earlier that year with the bow. The does ended up feeding to the other side of the field then walked down the hill. As soon as they were out of sight I started second guessing my decision to let them walk, but it would soon workout for the better.

It was about 30-45 minutes after the deer disappeared that I heard a shot in the direction they had walked. I thought, well some one just got one of those does. Within a minute or so I see one of those does running back across the field in an erratic manner. Not the type of run where they are running from danger, but the type of run when they are trying to shake a rutting buck. I got my rifle up and sure enough a buck comes running across the field. I maybe have ten seconds to get him to stop for a shot. I shouted at him and he did not break stride, I shouted again and nothing. He was going on a pretty straight line, so I raised my rifle and picked a spot in front of him. As soon as I seen his shoulder in my scope I pulled the trigger. He gave a big mule kick, so I knew I hit him. I was just not sure if it was a good hit.

I got down almost immediately and walked the 105 yards to where I hit him to look for blood. I did not see any. Damn... my heart dropped, as I thought I just placed a bad shot on him. I figured I would give him some time, before I go look for him. I went and grabbed my stuff and made my walk down to my truck which crosses the trail the buck was on after he was shot. As soon as I got to the intersection I was elated. There was blood EVERYWHERE. I knew he was done nearby and as I walked down my trail another 25 yards I seen him to my right and for the first time in the history of hunting whitetails he actually ran towards my truck instead of away from it. I made a perfect double lung shot on him while he was at a dead run at 105 yards.

When I got down to the truck my buddy asked if that was me who shot? I told him he needs to come check this buck out. He was happy as hell and offered to grab the 4-wheeler. I explained I could not use it. I always drag my deer out. I even dragged one 3 miles out of the Nebraska Wildcats, but that is another story.

Missouri rifle season 2019. My son killed his first deer, a six pointer with the savage 110 in 243 I bought him that year.

This will go down as the most memorable hunt I’ll ever have. My son ran all the way back to my dad’s house to tell grampa he killed a buck. My dad came out in the tractor with and my son with him all smiles.

After I dressed the deer, I skinned it with a knife my dad handed me it had Ol Grampa on the sheath. My son talked about that hunt for days.

My father died Jan 23, 2020. That six pointer the knife and casing from the shot sit on my son’s bedroom wall.

Sorry to hear about your father, brother. At least you all had the opportunity to share that moment together.
