    This weekend, I was able to walk within 10 yards of a doe, who was, ironically bedded down 10 yards away from one of my stands! I saw this doe watching me from a atv trail 30 yards away. So i tried meandering over to it to see how close i could get. It took me 20 minutes but she let me get within 15 yards from her before the doe lost interest and walked away. Thats when i started to walk along with the doe until it bedded down feet from my deer stand! All she did was watch me as i walked by the stand. Walking up on a clueless doe early archery season like that would be lethal, and probably what i'll do to hopefully bag my first deer with a bow.

    You're so full of yourself....

      Just the other day during a stroll through the woods I walked within 15 yards of a doe. It was thick brush and I was shocked she didn't run. She let me put stuff in my hands down and grab my camera in my pocket for some pics. Too bad my point and shoot quality is poor. I'm guessing she had a fawn nearby otherwise she would have bolted.

        Who's not surprised kkok didn't misspell anything this time?

          Hey kkok, I don't recall MNwhitetailHunter ever boasting about how many pounds he can bench press, or about how much fish and game he's killed, so who's really full of themselves?
          We've had a doe and fawn hanging around our pasture about 100 yards from our house for the last week or so, and we've even found tracks in our garden (not so good!), 30 yards from our front door. This might not be unusual for some folks, but we don't live in the woods, and it's very unusual for deer to come around. We actually had to chase the fawn out of one of our fenced-in fields, because it was running back and forth along the fence bleating, and couldn't seem to find its own way out. First time I've ever had to herd a deer!

            So far, I've built a "bee vacuum" and a "swarm trap".
            When I deploy the trap this spring, I'll need at least one hive....I hope!...
