    Had him under my stand for a few seconds, but can't shoot my longbow straight down, so I grabbed the point-n-shoot. He was chasing does and took off. Took one shot at him when paused about 30 yards out, but he ducked the arrow and took off. He's a 9pt, 5 of the left and 4 on the right.

    Saw him about a week later and he mounted a doe about 15 yards off to my left, but couldn't get a shot before he took off. Very cool to watch though, never saw that in person in 40 some years of hunting. Got until 1/18 to get an arrow in him.  :cool:

    That will get your heart going. Looks like you picked a great spot for you stand. You are getting some good opportunities.

    Nice loimoking buck there DF. I hope you get a shot at him. I'm chomping at the bit. My hunt starts in 17 days in Alabama.

    Eris. Where are you hunting? (No GPS co-ordinates or anything, just the general area) ;D

    Oh. You kill anything this year? I could use a strip of some natural body hair. Maybe some white belly hair as well. Watcha got?

    I have a doe skin in the freezer (next to the otter :)) When I tan it I'll try to remember to cut you a few strips. Probably be a month or more though before I get into that. Too many other little projects in the queue...

    Hey aaron, does it need to be tanned or would frozen work? If the past couple years are any indicator, I should have some hydes in a couple weeks.
