6th day on the Sonora deer hunting trip

On the 6th day of the Sonora, Texas deer hunting trip, Dr Mike changed his game plan an went to the Wayback stand. He dropped Bruce at the Sanctuary stand on his way to the Wayback stand. ' I could barely make out objects in the dark around 6:30am when the first deer stepped out into the shooting lane. I only needed one doe to finish tagging out. From 6:30am to 9:00am, I never lost site of deer activity. I watched an 8 point chase a doe all morning long. Spikes, 4pts, 6pts, a doe with 2 yearling coming an going from the shooting lanes. I was videoing this big 6pt and a doe when Dr Mike pulled up to the stand. ' Bruce McDonald commented. In the afternoon, Dr Mike went to the Santa Claus stand and I went to Ronnie 2 stand. I was getting into the stand and this young spike watched me climb up. From 4pm to sundown the bachelor herd of bucks showed up. 4 8points, 6 points, 4 points, spikes, and 1 doe with a yearling. At one time I had 2 8pts locking horns under my stand. I had about 15 plus deer around me. Maybe I will get my last doe an tag out! Tomorrow is just another day! More to come from Sonora!
