Good morning all, 37° and cloudy with occasional snow flakes. Animals are fed and watered, humans have eaten and the coffee is within reach. Finally got a chance to see some deer while hunting. Even got a chance to take a shot and the results of 3 1/2 hours on stand is a single drop of blood the size of a BB. After action report seems to go with poor shot placement choice and/or nicking a limb . I thought I was aiming at a spot just behind the shoulder but the results say otherwise. After my hunting buddy stood at the point where the deer stood I find that a low hanging Hemlock limb may have spoiled my plans . Over an hour of searching revealed no more blood drops along the well marked retreat path. Several choice words were directed at me by me . A rookie mistake and not even buck fever since it was a doe. Play safe out there.
