In the cover of darkness, I made it to my hide overlooking an expanse of sage fields and plum thickets. There were a few clumps of hardwoods mixed in and a feeder directly to my east. When there was enough available light, I ranged the distance to the feeder. The reading was 111 yards. Through the viewfinder, I noticed movement. There was already a mature 10-point buck at the feeder. Unfortunately, it was several minutes until legal shooting light.
Shortly after that, the buck left. During the morning sit, the only other deer I saw were a couple of does running in the distance.
