Default First deer of the year

I tell you all right now, the Good Lord was with me on my Saturday morning hunt. I didn't want to get out of bed, since I was up late the night before with my wife and some friends. I got up thinking you can't see deer from your bed and drove the 20 minutes it takes me to get to my hunting land. Got out a little later than I like. I got to my stand at about 7:15, which was about a half hour later than I usually do. I saw two coyotes right off the bat, that left me thinking great no deer now (that is a different post I am starting, so look for that after you read this one).

Any ways I saw seven deer from 8:15 to 9:45 and shot me a 135lb doe at about 9:30. Yes I saw two more deer about 10 minutes after I shot the doe.

The deer were moving Saturday morning at least in my part of Indiana and to think, I almost didn't go...

Thank the Lord for making my shot true and accurate.

Congrats on your first of the year!

Yeah, down hear in Southern Indiana, the deer moved great all weekend. Sunday morning I had deer all around me from 6 until 8. Sunday night I watched deer from 4:30 until dark. They're really moving with the cold weather and the moon phases being about right.
