ok this year was my first year hunting PA (i'm a non resident) and the first thing that shocked me was the price, 127$ for the maybe 3 days i would be out there. well the first morning i see nothing. it worries me a little and i have all afternoon to think about it. well at noon we decide to go for a drive ad look for deer to stalk. about 100yards down the road we see a buck about 30yards off. i get out and the deer runs about 100 yards and keeps feeding. i stalk to about 40yards and shoot. the deer jumps, goes back to feeding and about 2-3 minutes later falls over dead.YES!!! i got a buck, a basket 7. i take the deer home and it is the end of a short but sucessful buck hunt right?.... wrong! today while doe hunting the first deer in the field is a huge 8 with a broken brow!!!:eek: at 10yards broadside!!! and he stays like that for about 10 minutes feeding until he sees the truck:doh: and runs taking 4 other bucks with him, 2 of the others were also bigger than the one i shot. never did see a doe, just 5 bucks. usually it is the other way around. sigh..... oh well.
