I've been hunting as often as I can since opening weekend of bow season. I hunt small parcels of land with very little woods and few deer. Throughout the whole bow season I haven't seen 1 single deer. (Before anyone says scent control, I hunt according to the wind) Well, I've been getting pictures of a nice shooter 8 the last couple weeks. I checked my camera today at lunch and he was at my cornpile at 4:30 yesterday afternoon. I was working then and off today. So 4:45 or so rolls around today. I was nervous with anticipation hoping the buck would be back. All of a sudden my cousins pull in on their adjoining farm with atvs and LOUD mufflers. Of course they commense to raisin heck and spook the buck. I'm huntin a 10 acre tract of land and this buck was just getting ready to jump from the neighbors land to our's. He busts out runnin in front of me 30 yards away. I raised up my gun and tried to stop him. He wasn't stoppin so I got him in the scope and shot just as he was jumpin into our creek and into the thick stuff. I looked and looked and couldn't find blood or hair or anything. I feel very confident I missed. The atv riders stopped for just a few seconds and watched me lookin around and they went back to ridin. Last year I started getting another real nice 8 on camera down there. At first it was all night pics and one day he started showin up in daylight. The same cousin of mine who doesn't know about the deer and doesn't hunt decides to go spotlighting on their land opening weekend of gun season. After that night I nor the other neighbor never got another picture of the big buck. This is family we're talkin about so what do I do? It's very frustrating cause I put in a lot of time and effort on a very small parcel of land, and everytime I start getting some confidence built up that I'm gonna get a chance at a nice deer somethin blows it.
