well sadly i didn't manage a deer yet again last weekend but had the most thrilling encounter.
i had set up shop on a known area where last time a saw a very nice buck in velvet.this time around 6.05 true to form he showed himself again chasing a doe.he ran about 100 yards when i gave a quick blast on the buttallo call and the next few minutes were the most intense moment in my life.he turned on a six pence and starting to gallop towards me must have come 50 yards but only his head and antlers were visible in the long grass and sadly i didn't manage a shot.
my heart has necer pumped so hard in my life and while watching him through the scope my left leg started to tremble uncontrolably.i can honestly say in my years of shooting geese,pheasants and everything else that has never happend.
i could have if i wanted taken a neck shot but i'm still new to stalking and waited for the perfect chest shot making sure of a clean kill sadly never happened but theres always next time.
i guess thats what you call buck fever.
