A Vermont First (For Me Anyway…)

I left work in time Friday, October 13th to hit the woods for the last few hours of hunting light. The weather was pleasant, only a light breeze. I settled in to my tree stand, knocked an arrow and sat back for an uneventful sit. To my surprise, a tad before 6 I heard what sounded like a deer trotting along. Sure enough, 50 yards away three antlerless deer came into view. They milled around for about half an hour, never coming any closer. This was a big deal for me, and somewhat encouraging on account of it being the first time I have ever seen deer in Vermont while in a tree stand. The only discouraging thing was that they were hanging around the spot where my stand had been hung previously. I moved it because I went a whole season without seeing any deer.
