    Well conditions to me couldnt get much better. 35 degrees with minimal wind, nice and dark with a little fog mixed in, my kind of hunting weather.
    :big_smile: Today was the first day of the early muzzleloader season and my first real chance to hunt. Sat in the same stand till 10:30 without seeing a thing, I was hearing them in the brush on the next ridge over but none would show. At about 10:30 I decide to try a stalk. As soon as I reached the other ridge I used a doe grunt and seen a flash of leg!!! I sneak within about 30 yards of where I seen the leg and use the call again. A nice mature doe almost immediately sticks her head out to see who's calling. As soon as she does I take her. Instant kill with a head shot. MMMMM MMMMMM deer jerky, steak and stew here I come.:big_smile:

    Good job Brian. I always enjoy the season better after I get that first one under my belt. It seems to take some of the pressure off or something. Now go get some more.
