Thanks guys! Unfortunately no deer this year on my birthday. They are a little hard to find this year and very hard to pattern? I purposely set my quad at a strategic point to deter deer away from it to push them past me. When I left my stand after seeing zero deer, they were standing by my quad!
They are not stupid by any means.
When I got home my neighbor called. I figured he saw me come in and was wondering how my day went, which is what he uasually calls for. Not this time! He was upset and asked if I was going to hunt after dark I may want to stay on my own property?
The legal hunting time ended at 6:19 last night and the time it takes to break down a climber and walk back to the quad, then drive home takes some time? I was home at 6:50pm. I went out of the woods with my lights off because I could still see well enough to drive. I went past his house with my lights off also because he has lots of deer in his yard and if I come through slowly it won't distub them as much. He thought I was sneaking out of the woods? I've been doing this for years? I guess I need to have a heart to heart talk with him and see what is really bothering him? He knows I am an honest guy and would NEVER take advantage of him in any way? Besides, how do you bow hunt after dark?
He just turned 80 so maybe he has some issues starting?
