No Bambi today

I spent the morning hunting a patch of scrub land probably 5 acres in size.  I had seen two deer there 10 days ago.  When I approached the area where they had bedded down earlier I could smell a very strong animal smell.  Similar to the smell of a blanket a dog has been sleeping on.  There was nothing there though.  I saw lots of tracks in the freshly plowed field next to the scub land but there was nothing to shoot at.  To optimize my chances today I should of stayed around until dusk at another location where they come out of the woods to feed on some green grass but I had things I had to do at home and came home early.  I’ll be going back Friday and possibly Thursday. 

I got some stuff done at the Taj Mahal though–preparing for Boomershoot 2006.
