Well today has been a blessing in itself.... I got to share the day with Mrs. Grizzly in a buddy stand.... was taking her on her very first deer hunt. Had hoped to get her a first deer, but she was having second thoughts so I did most of the shooting. Took a nice 80lb (field dressed) doe first. Seeing it in person kinda made it real for her.... said it wasn't like watching it on tv.

The next deer came in and she still wasn't sure about shooting it. So, I took my biggest to date buck this morning 135lb (field dressed) 6pt. She did better with that one and was happy I had taken a buck.

We saw several deer from my "faithful" area.... been a good spot for seeing deer over the last 5-6 years.... almost a dozen deer taken from the same tree.

She had seen enough action and was ready to try it for herself. She took a shot on a nice buck as well, but for whatever reason didn't connect.

So hope all of my TnDeer family had/has a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving.... I did!!

I like that picture of the buck and doe together. You can really tell his neck is swelled up.

She didn't have a buck chasing her.... but the ones we saw today and that came into our area, followed the trail to where she lay after I shot her.

My buck, a spike, and the buck (7-8pt maybe bigger) that Angie missed.

Saw a total of 10 deer between daylight and 9am.

Thanks for sharing that hunt as you did, particularly from the Ms Grizz POV.

My wife is just about to the point where yours is, and enjoyed hearing about your wife's reactions. She is ready to sit on a buddy stand with me to experience the hunt. Having your story in mind will help her prep for it.
