  1. Well 2night was an experience i will never forget! I have been hunting for about 10 yrs now, now im 21.This was the closet encounter I have had with a Buck! There were about 15 deer out in the field, spikes, does, and this Nine Point. he had fairly nice tine length and decent width but still not a shooter..he was prolly a 2 1/2 yr old deer. Im ON THE GROUND in a lil patch of weeds on the edge of the field, sitten with my camo on, which has some pinned fabric leaves on i bought at a hunting store. anyway this buck gets closer and closer.. He's coming at a straight beam right towards me. Im sitten there with my head tilted down a lil and he's nealy 2 arrow lengths away!! I though he was going to make a rub on my Compound Bow!!! NOT JOKING. He did not even Spook. Never smelt me. just trotter away to 20 yards and started eating again. WOW. at dark i walked it off and he was 5 STEPS away!! not yards, Steps, foot to foot. What a night.
