my first hunting experience

So i finally moved to a state that does not have the death penatly for somebody that goes hunting. so i decided to go for the first time on saturday.

i load up my truck with all the essential hunting gear on Friday and take off to the loaction that is about 2 hours away from me. There is a large lake there so i decide to bring along my fishing gear as well
I arrive at the site and there are already a couple guys there repairing their campers and camper shelters from the storm that came across on Tuesday. I talk to them for a while about meaningless crap, I am always surprised what people will tell you if you listen.

So I head off through the woods and find a tree that has fell with a nice root ball laying on the ground, about 8 x 6 feet and decided I will set up a blind there. So i reach the ball and have my fishing poles in my right hand, my rifle over my left shoulder and my backpack on my back (of course). All of a sudden i hear this sound and think to myself that the squirells sure are loud here. I look over my shoulder and a deer is trotting toward me, about 10 feet away I stood still as a building and waited to see what she was going to do, well she kept trotting along and never stopped so i never even got a shot off.
for the rest of the day on friday i was going between fishing and hunting because i was hearing "stuff" in the woods that I knew was a deer near my blind. I would sneak back up the hill from the lake and nothing, so when i was up there I would hear fish jumping all over the place. i would run back down the hill and try to snag them - this went on for 6 hours. didn't catch ****.

oh well - i had all day saturday to catch one

Re: my first hunting experience

So being that this is the first time you've been deer hunting...do you know anything about it? Serious question. I'm not trying to be a dick.

Usually, people only hunt during the morning and evening hours b/c deer are nocternal and move in/out of bedding areas during these times. Also, deer are so astute to sight/smell/hearing that "stalking" a deer is pretty much pointless. Get in a stand that has a high traffic area and straight up wait, or try to call them in. You can have a buddy push them to you as well.

This is all obvious, but I was brought up around this crap. I don't hunt any more BTW. Not for any specific reason.

Re: my first hunting experience

Hahahahahaha....going between hunting and fishing, that's great. Talk about multi-tasking. Sounds like my brother. We went bow hunting for deer and he sees this group of Mallard ducks in the water. Yes he had his duck stamp as well. So he says to me over the Motorola talk about that he's going to try and get a duck with his bow. Of course I laughed at him and wished him the best of luck. At sundown I begin to walk back to the truck and there Chris stands with his bow in one hand and a Mallard with an arrow through it in the other. I just about pissed my pants laughing. He said he threw up a Hail Mary shot when they group took off and one fell. I don't think he could ever do it again...funniest thing I've ever seen someone shoot with a bow.

Re: my first hunting experience

Here's my guess. Here's how it starts:

"So I'm in the woods. A tricycle, my grandma, a monkey, and a midget...."

Re: my first hunting experience

And we are the superior species.

I believe the deer was throwing stones in the woods to watch you scramble through the woods.

Were you wearing your hunting urine and feces?

But seriously, I heard on Paul Harvey that the evil deer isn't only tipped off by man's scent, but rather his breath. Now I could go a lot of places here Bubba but I won't. They've now come out with a gum that can be chewed to disguise the breath. The ingrediants sounded freakin horrible, including pine oil and a whole bunch of other crap. The things hunters go through for that kill.
