Scouting for Success

Deer movement was early that opening evening. I was seeing does on their feet abnormally early. This kept me on high alert when I noticed movement above me up on the hill. It was a buck my target buck had run with all summer. Right behind him from the manzanita emerged my target buck. My heartbeat accelerated as both deer made their way toward my hidden ground blind unaware of my ambush. At 15 yards, they hit my shooting lane, still walking directly at me. The big buck walked to 11 yards before he stopped and was facing directly at me. Should I shoot him head-on? No, I'm going to wait. He will turn, I remember thinking.
