Opening day 2012 I was hunting a piece of land I had just got permission to hunt two days before. I was set up on the ground with a crossbow, around 7:20 I looked down and there were 8-10 wasps crawling up my jacket. I decided to regroup at the truck and while I was leaving some scent on the ground 2 does walked right through the field in front of me. I probably wouldn't have got a shot off even if I had my crossbow in hand but the deer would likely have walked right by me had I stayed on the stand and not spooked them.

Been there, feel your pain. I did it with a coyote once. Hated I didn't get a change to kill that song dog.

Hope you get a second chance.
