I have had some narrow misses doing that! One was one of our target bucks running across a field towards one of our stands! I saw him up CLOSE and would have been super mad if I hit him with the SUV rather than an arrow. I know it will eventually happen when I hit one heading out to hunt just hope its not anytime soon!

Two years ago I cimbed into my stand, pulled my bow up, and a 7 point stepped out. I shot him and he piled up about twenty yards away. I had missed a call while climbing into the stand, and looked at the time right after the buck had piled up and it was one minute. So that hunt was less than a minute! Probably won't beat that ever

Opening morning for gun season two years ago walked to a stand on my buddies property where he shot a nice 10 pointer that morning. Got up set my pack down put a cap on my ML heard a noise to my left. Two does walked by and I took aim at the biggest one and droped her. About 10 minutes and I had meat in the freezer. Fastest hunt for me so far.

Like several others already posted .... about no time, if you don't count getting into the area. Has happened a few times to me in 50 years or so ... just about like this one in winter of 2004. I say 10 seconds. Slipped into the edge of a food plot where I had planned to sit the remainder of the day .... just in case something might be in the field early. Nada but saw a big 9 pt. bedded up in along the opposite side from me, facing the woods. One shot right at the joining of the back of his neck/shoulders ... never stood up. Done and back at camp in 30 minutes or so.

I hunted where they're over run with deer. So that isn't a big deal. One of my favorite times was sitting inside my friends dalapidated shed. I had a doe walk 5' from the opening and I drilled her. Then another stepped into her spot and stopped. I reloaded and drilled it. Then another stepped in the spot and I reloaded and drilled it. Then on more did it so I drilled it. I ran out of deer at the same time I ran out of arrows. Lol. All from 5' away. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

This year that spot should be good again. The state finished the highway they we putting in so the deer should be back to their normal pattern.

October 1st 2007. Climbed into my stand at 3:30 pm and saw a buck headed my way. Pulled my bow up, took the quiver off, nocked an arrow and the buck walked in front of me. I shot and he ran about 30 yards and fell over. Total time of 4 minutes.

My fastest hunt was my very first deer ever. I didn't even make it to the stand. I was about 50 yards from my stand. I was walking along my path and I look over to see a doe staring at me 30 yards away broadside. The first year I ever started archery I just used my fingers, well before season started I began using a release.. Well it just so happens I forgot my release at home so I used my fingers that hunt, missed the first shot on the doe. But got a second shot off and right through the heart it went.

The fastest hunt while being in the stand was maybe 5-10 minutes. Just got up the tree, bag settled in and bow pulled up when I looked to the east and saw a buck walking my way. I dont know if I wasn't mentally prepared yet or what but I made a shoulder shot and couldn't find him. 2 weeks later I get this picture..
