The boss tells me she's going out of town and won't be back until monday. I looked at the weather forecast saying low of 28 blowing knots out of the west. Lets go. I went to a spot that i haven't been to yet this year and know that there is a steady run of deer using this area often. Arrived at my tree a 6:10 with my climber stand and just as i take the stand off my shoulders i hear a deer start snorting. This sucks, tell all the deer where i'm at and ruin my day right. I put out some doe in heat and climbed the tree. The deer is still snorting so i started grunting at him to see what happens. At 6:45 here he comes, it was barely light enough to see my pin on the bow from an angle but he came up to me about 8-10 years away sniffing the dow in heat bottle broad side . I drew back on him and the arrow slipped off the rest making a scratching sound and off he went. He stopped about 30 yards away snorting and hung out just downwind of the doe in heat for another hour or so. I counted 4 points on the leftside and would guess and say that he was at least a 2 1/2 year old by the size of his body. Oh well, I check out that spot again next week after the rut picks up.
