Got my first public land deer last night!
I was set up in some mature hardwoods at the edge of a big bedding area. Could hear acorns dropping behind me steadily. She came in 45 minutes before sunset. Shot was 25 yards, hit her a bit back and a bit high. Great blood trail for the first 150 yards, it was spraying everywhere. Got spotty for the last 40 yards, but thanks to a buddy found her before 10 PM. I hadn't scouted the bedding area thoroughly before-hand, and I was surprised by how big it was. Several acres of thick, nasty stuff.
Feels so good to get one early season. Now the pressure is off and I can focus on getting a buck.
