Close encounter

Post by R.J. » Thu Sep 18, 2003 4:59 am

Found this photo it was supose to go on another thread .

Now from one extreme to another ... this one I call " handcuffed " I had 2 decoys out in front . A doe and fawn were mucking about just to my left . I was so distracted by the doe and fawn I was not prepared when I nice 8 point walked right up behind me . He was so close walking in I thought he was going to walk over my position ! He walked by approx. an arms length upwind on my left side ! I was wearing a scent lock suit hunting from a ground seat . The reason I know he was only an arms length away was because I put my arm up to block as I quick snapped a picture ! There was no way I was going to be able to make a bow move on him but the picture ended up being a great memory !

Pete : Your not kidding ... I raised my arm to block when I snapped the picture for that reason ... I wasn't sure which way he would go or how he would react .
