Defending The Pond Stand

Relief City, MS> As noticed, We have been out chasing deer. It has been a strange and unbelievable week of hunting. It all started the day after Christmas, when Trent slipped south to the camp and hunted the Pond Stand. Dad, of course, told him to go there. He takes care of his baby boy.
Trent nervously watched the big hollow to his left as the sun sank lower in the sky.
Dark clouds rolled in and he was worried that it might start to rain. The one constant and important thing to remember is NEVER hunt the Pond Stand in the rain. There are things that you don't want to see and wouldn't believe, if it starts raining. But, that is a different story. He finally heard running footsteps and a couple of deer worked their way down the hollow. They were being pursued by a nice, young 8-point.
He started chasing them back and forth around Trents' stand. Trent watched and waited. At the last few minutes of light, he saw movements and a heavy horned 10-point slipped straight down the side of the ridge to him. BLAM! The deers' antlers were only 13 inches wide, but heavy with long tines. A really nice buck. This got everyone fired up and the next day we all headed into camp.
