I don't know what was special about this evening's hunt, but the deer moved. I was on the same food plot I was on Friday evening when I only saw 5 small deer and today there were 15. I had two 8pts., a 7pt., a 6pt., 2 spikes, 7 does, and 3 yearlings. The 7pt. fought with all the other bucks before he wandered off and then the two 8's started getting after it. The spikes were doing some casual head butting. The 7pt. was the most aggressive and he's a buck I've never seen before. They are apparently beginning to wander a little, but maybe not the big ones just quite yet. Some friends were hunting nearby and they saw 34 deer between the 3 of them. My buddy's wife got her first deer, too. It was a 13 3/4 inch 7pt. that weighed 165lbs. and another guy hunting nearby got a 16 1/4 inch 8pt. weighing 170lbs. Like I said, don't know what was special about today but it was a good one.
