Well, it was the morning of dec. 3rd I couldnt make my mind up to run the rabbit dogs or go to the deer stand so i decided to do a little of both. I called my cousin and told him to bring the rabbit dogs and start them at the front of the property and I was goin to be sitting in the back of the property so if the dogs happen to slip one out I would be there waiting. Well I had got to my stand about an hour before I told him to be there. The morning was cold a hard frost on the ground and animals didnt seem to be acting right. I had seen nothing by the time he was supposed to be getting there. Then I heard him opening the gate to drive in the property. Just as he turned his truck off I heard something comeing down the oak ridge in between us. As i looked back a big doe topped the ridge bout to run smooth over me, then to my surprise a buck we call casper was dogging her About two foot behind her. The come up fast And I had no time to react so I had to let Them run by me. When they crossed in fornt of me they were less than 10 yards away I had to hollar at them to get them to stop on the next ridge I settled in and took the shot the deer dropped and started rolling down the hill. He was a big pretty ten point with a 19 inch spread and field dressed 210 pounds not a bad deer for alabama.
