Up until this morning I have seen 10 deer...small bucks and does.
It was 9a.m. when I arrived at my blind this morning because I still hunted my way in.At 10:05a.m. I had a 10 pointer step out at 35 yards broadside in front of me but before I could get the crosshairs on him he made a jump into thick cover.The buck then proceeded to circle me and when he was almost behind me I made a few soft doe calls.In about 2 minutes time I saw some brown moving back around to the front of me(there was a blowdown between him and me) and I looked and saw a hole through the blowdown.Before the deer got to the hole I caught a glimpse of antler and thought it was him.When the foreshoulder appeared in the hole I fired and I watched the 10 pointer get out of my sight in 2 leaps.I could not believe I had missed so I got out of the blind and went to where the deer was when I fired and found the following deer dead on the ground.To say I was surprised would be an understatement but needless to say my season is over.The decoy pictured below actually worked for me bringing deer in on 3 different occasions in combination with scents.

Thanks.This was also my first season using ground blinds.I always spent my deer seasons hanging around in treestands when I wasn't still hunting.He will definitely be a better cut of meat than the 10 pointer whose neck was really swollen.

Congrats on the deer from the ground blind that must have been exciting as hell with the bow.

Congrats dude! I know you must have been disappointed, thinking it was the bigger buck. But A Buck is a Buck, and they all look the same on your plate. Enjoy!


I'm really looking forward to trying out a blind myself next season.
