"Find the buck"

How many times have you had to play "find the buck" over the years? This just appeared to be a cat'sclaw-covered, rocky hillside, until something caught my eye and made me look closer!

Makes you wonder how many you've looked straight at and never saw.

A few years ago on a WY mule deer hunt, I turned a corner and spotted about 10 does feeding about 800 yards from me. I dropped down and scanned and scanned with and without binocs. After about 45 minutes, I decided I wasn't going to just sit there watching does. When I stood up, 3 bucks jumped up from under he shade of a rock I had scanned at least a dozen times. Oh well. Live and learn!

Joe2Kool: I had an experience once glassing does- I spooked them, and the ran over a hill; then slowly filed back and some actually bedded down below me. I glassed and glassed; never did spot a buck, so I decided to move on. Sidehilled a little bit and looked on an adjacent ridge, and there he was- a nice three point. He'd been there the whole time watching me and the does!

Yup, happens to the best of us, happens to the worst of us......I guess that means it happens to all of us. So often unless they move you won't see them , good glass and patience .
