    I've let some little ones go and have even passed on a couple does hoping a buck would be following them. Day before yesterday I sat in my stand until 11:00/ I was walking back to the truck on a wide open power line about 11:30 and topped a little rise just in time to see an 8 pointer step out in the road 40 yds away!

    I had my hands full and dropped down to my knees. I knocked an arrow and looked up and the buck had his head down browsing on some greenbier. I slipped aboiut ten yds closer. Ther sun was in my face and the wind was at my back, not good. The buck was heading towards a thicket. He put his head down again and I stood up and drew my bow. He either saw me or winded me and just hopped into the thicket.

    So close!
