Just got home, here is the story and keep in mind i have never killed a deer with my bow.
6:50 two deer come in about 60 yds, i stand up and get ready. Legs shaking like i cant control it, artery in my neck about to bust. I tell myself to calm down. I cant, well deer go out of sight. It is only 2 deer and i could see one had small set of horns and other nothing. I have been getting pics regular of a doe and a little 3 point running together. So my plan is to shoot 2nd deer if given chance. 7:05 rolls around getting very dark. First deer pops up 20 yards broad side and easiest shot in world. But i didnt wana take a 3 point. Well he walks 15 yds in front of me and cheast facing me eating.. Well he drops his head and i see plain as day 6 points
i have a 6 point on camera and said i would shoot him with my bow, would be a great first bow kill. But he isnt giving me the shot and its getting very dark now. All of a sudden i see other deer, i say frick it, ima shoot this doe! When it steps 20 yds i see two dam points on its head
and im no spike killer so im pissed as hell because this 6 point dick wont turn broad side. Well he finally does about 7:50 an i can not even see him through my peep site. So i hang my bow up and sit there. Upset, pissed, excited, all kinds of emotions goin on. Well then it gets crazier. I see two more images appear in my oats eating so i have 4 deer in my plot "and i have several pictures of a bachelor group with a very nice 8 and a stud 11 point. So now i do not wana spook these deer at any cost so i sit tight. Then a dam coyote or fox i cant make it out what the hell it is comes sneaking in and one of the deer charge it and run it off, then it does it again, and again! Its like a free for all going on under me. All this at 15-20 yards. Now its pitch dark and all i can do is see my ir camera taking pics like a boss! And hear deer crunching down. Finally at 7:30 i hear no more crunching and camera stopped. So i waited 10 more min and eased down and snuck out quietly! So still no bow kill or me
Moral of the story... Take friggn binoculars! Could have killed the 6 point if i had binoculars when he came in to see whats on his head! But maybe it worked out for the best, because if one of those other 2 deer that came in was my 11 point i will be relieved i didnt take that 6 point and spook him in the process.
