Sitting up a tree…

Spent the late afternoon sitting up a tree stand waiting for a deer to come by. I borrowed my dad’s break-block .30-40 Krag (has a scope, unlike my .30-.30). A really nice time, but didn’t see a deer. My neighbor has arranged hunting privileges at a local farm, and has some tree stands there. I was in one of those. Heard and saw lots of squirrels. Heard one deer at 5:20, just before dark, but it was moving along a ridge about 75 yards away in some dense timber, and I never saw it. Likely a buck, with one deer alone…left the stand at 5:35. Saw 3 does cross the road on the short drive home. Will try to go back next weekend.
