Back at it - week 2

The second week was colder than the first and I was back in the stand that I had sat in the first week.  We had daytime pictures of the big buck and I wanted to make sure I was going to be ready if he came in.

The sun had barely come up over the trees when I heard footsteps.  A single doe walked along the edge of the woodline where the spikehorn had been the week before.  I watched her feed on the frosted grass and paw for some acorns.  She was alone - no buck or does with her.  I watched her for ten minutes before she headed behind me into the thicker part of the woods.

I was thrilled to have seen more movement and deer.  But still, the big buck alluded me. He was showing up on our cameras but I had not been able to figure out what his pattern was or if he even had one.
