As I left my house, the phone rang and a very close friend was calling from Houston just to check up on me. Talking for a while I finally told him that I was on my way out to shoot â€œBambiâ€, he laughed and said â€œGood luck.â€ Hanging up, the phone rang again and it was one of my daughters, Suzanne, calling from Paris, Texas, looking for Layla. I couldnâ€™t just brush her off, so we talked for a few minutes and finally I told her that I was on my way to hunt. She said, â€œIsnâ€™t it kindaâ€™ late, but good luck anyway.â€
Yes it was late, almost 5:00 PM, (CDT), so I decided to hunt a special â€œhideâ€ of mine, 10 yards off from several well used deer trails, also I reluctantly decided not to take my deer horns with me, so there would be no â€œrattlingâ€ this trip. The â€œhideâ€ was cut into a cedar tree, with a copious amount of buck brush sprinkled liberally around so I snuck into it and pulled my camo face mask down, this turned out to be mistake one of several I made that afternoon! Quietly chambering a round into my lightweight .270, I slipped my grunt caller over my head and I was ready for the deer, I thought.

Years ago, after a dove hunting trip that was hard and yielded very poor results, my Dad passed on some sage advice to me, saying, â€œBoy, donâ€™t worry about todayâ€™s bad hunt. Just remember, if it was easy each time out, it would be called â€œshootingâ€ instead of â€œhuntingâ€.
Being retired and having a ranch five miles southwest of Goldthwaite, Texas, gives me ample time and sufficient opportunity to be in the field hunting. I had planned an afternoon hunt in a tree stand, in very thick cover, on the south side of my property, to try and â€œrattleâ€ up a nice buck.
