Chirp. Chirp. The crickets were chirping. Do you like the sounds crickets make? The morning of the first day of deer season. This year I was walking into the woods to go hunting.
When I got to my stand it was 5:30. So I had to wait an hour to shoot anything. That hour was the longest hour ever. Then finally the hour passed. Now it was legal shooting time. I was sitting there it was very quiet. Then all the sudden I heard something moving behind me. I seen four doe. Then I thought to myself there must be a buck behind them because it was still rut. My thoughts were right.
I turned over to my right I could see the head and neck of an eight point buck. This was a bad spot because I couldn't get a shoot off at him because of the brush in the way.
So I stood up and I could see him perfect. Then I took off the saftey and took a deep breath. Finally after all that waiting I slowly squeezed the trigger BANG! The deer ran behind me. I thought I had missed him because he didn't fall over he just started to run. I was bummed. Although I walked over to where I shot and there I found blood and a clump of hair.
After that I went to go get my cousin and track the deer. We came back an hour later so the deer had time to die. My little brother and I followed the trail and there he was a beautiful eight point buck. That day wasn't so bad after all.
