Got in about 1-1/2 hrs before dark,(all I can do just after work), and sat till dark. 30 min before sunset, I hear a monster muzzle blast just over the hill from where I expected the deer to come from this eve. Oh well, maybe someone got to them before they got to me, or maybe I spooked them over to them on the way in, being so late and all. Anyway, right as I couldn't see anymore, I reached down(on the ground btw), to gather my stuff, and all of a sudden Thump! Thump! Thump! of hooves hittin the dirt! He, and I say he b/c it was by itself, and never blew even, but he ran off and was only about 20 yds from me! I know I've lost some hearing over the years, but dang, nearly a foot deep of leaves, crunchy as all get out, and I never heard him get that close? I'm startin' to get a bad feeling about this season....

Cheer up it will get better. At least you saw one and to be that close, sounds like your doing everything right.

Maybe, but they're still moving at, or just after dark. I can't go back any farther in b/c of the wind direction at present.

Oh I can't complain really, I've had several good years in a row, just might be one of those years where I just get to enjoy being out there.

Keep at it buddy.
Years ago on a bow hunt, I missed a NICE 8 point. I had gotten down to go look at the spot to make positive I'd missed. 30 yards away in plain sight of my climber. Got the arrow, confirmed the miss, walked right back to the tree. I stepped up into the stand to get back up, heard a rustle behind me.
20 yards away stood one of the largest bucks I've ever seen, huge rack, lots of points, standing there looking at me. Tail down, just looking.
My bow was on the ground, tied to the rope. We look at each other for for a good minute, finally he decided he was bored I guess, started walking off. Of course I tried to pick up my bow, which made him trot off. He never spooked though. Weirdest thing I've ever seen a buck do outside the rut.
