    We sat over our bean plot this evening. Yesterday evening I put some corn out and had to push down some beans cause they are too tall to shoot through. I am 5’11” on a good day and they were as tall as my chest. We saw 11 does. They came from every direction. Eating beans and working there way to the corn. She won’t shoot a mom with a fawn and we had 3 of those come out. We had 2 does around 75 pounds I am guessing, come out but she said they were too small. We had 2 does we had our eyes on and they just wouldn’t come in all the way. For an hour she had bow in hand waiting. 3 at 17 yds. One was a little spooky cause she saw my wife open the window but she was one of the smaller does and my wife wanted a BIG DOE. Well apparently when they left she told the other 2 what she saw cause they would come out look at the other deer in the beans but then run back into the woods. Could have been the neighbors that was unloading their guns too. I was on edge as much as she was. When we got out of blind my legs were almost as shaky as if I was the one hunting. The adrenaline rush we get from this is like no other. She was so excited. Can’t wait to go back out. Only bad thing is with her work schedule we get one evening to hunt and that’s Sunday’s. Sorry for the long read, but great first sit for her.

    Man these ladies are picky my wife had her first sit tonite said she had does in front of her all evening. But she did not like the shot angles they presented, and she is having me move her stand tomorrow.

    Sounds like a great hunt and lots of memories! Those are just as important to me as the kill! Good luck!

    I kinda thought the same thing when I put out my corn. However they are almost 100 pounds in one night. Don’t think I have ever had that happen. But my doe population is unreal.

    She doesn’t handle the cold too well. I try and get her out early season as much as possible cause once the temps drop she just can’t handle it. Wish I had a few bucks for her to take a shot at but I think I just have too many does around early on. November is fun though.
