Well I hunted from the ground today. I found a good spot on a field edge that still had a little clover and green grass and the wind was at my back. At about 4:20 I hear some noises, kind of like some crashing and limbs falling. I turn to see a spike within 20 yards. I moved a little to get a better look and he stopped and looked my direction for about 5 seconds and then looked back behind him for about 30 seconds. He ended up coming into the field I was facing 20 yards to my left. He headed my way and got within 10 yards and saw me. He ran about 30 yards and looked back. I did the ole waaaaah and he looked, blew and took off. I thought it was pretty cool. Well I stood up. All I heard was blowing and running behind me. I was able to turn and saw a glimpse of horns. I couldnt tell how big or anything like that. He blew more than once as I tried to grunt him back to me.|
My question is basically did I hear a possible fight between the spike and the other buck, and is my location burned. This is my first glimse of bucks since mz season.
Sorry for the long post, but dang I need some advice.
Also I didn't see any does at all.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
