Got my second one ever this year. Couldn't manage to get out early in the season, but managed to get out and scout a new(ish) area Saturday and Sunday before the opener about 3/4 mile from my last successful season. After 2 days of scouting and heading in the morning of my hunt I had seen zero people, which is already a win for Western Wa.

Got in to where I planned to be by about 6:30, had a beautiful sunrise before the clouds and wind picked up making it a bit colder than I had planned. A doe trotted by about 9 which warmed me up a bit, then this guy came in from the other direction about an hour later. I was cold enough from just sitting that I was shaking a little, but it was only a 40 yard shot. After the shot he calmly walked off leaving me confused as to how I could have missed. I could still see him walking for about 30 yards before I lost him in the trees. Decided to wait it out for a bit before checking where he was standing when I shot. After that I realized he wasn't going far and had actually dropped right about where I lost him in the trees.

Is that the buck in your avatar? And did you sit on his back and pedal? Thats a plot line of a great patrick mcmanus story ...

And I see you are from seattle any chance you took a spin along the waterfront

No, that is the one I got about 3/4 mile from this one a few years ago. It was a good way to get him out, but real challenging getting that bike back up on two wheels.

I guess I need to update my info, I'm in Kent now, so no buck bike rides along the waterfront.

A little late, but a little doe we bagged the day before Thanksgiving in northern Idaho. Quote of the day "she looked a lot bigger in the brush"  :dunno: :chuckle:  She be little, but darn tasty. We saw quite a few does on the run and watched a couple toeheads chasing each other in the sunshine, but not many bucks this year. Lots of WA license plates and wolf traps though! Went out one day and it was snowing -- hoped that might get them moving, but instead, we spooked a whole herd of elk and just watched in awe as they took off. Seeing all the animals makes being out so much fun! :)
