Screw thanksgiving, id rather be hunting. Been out here on the mountain since november 9th hunting a big 6x6 whitetail. Almost had him yesterday. Came in bird dogging a doe, head down, grunting... stopped behind a tree at 30 yards and i drew my bow, and he just hung up there forever, until the doe headed the wrong way and he followed. Damnit. Second time ive seen him now with no shot opportunity. Tonight my second choice buck came in for the second time, a 7x6. Just like last thursday evening, came in pushing a doe and grunting, ran her straight up the hill at dark, never getting in range. Getting pretty frustrated, and freezing my ass off, but having fun. Hunting big whitetail in peak rut beats a turkey dinner any day.
