Sunday Morning Hunt

Last year, after I had shot my buck, Kent and I did some scouting along a small creek adjacent to a bedding area. The area was torn up and we had picked out a great spot for a treestand. Kent put a stand there this year and that's where I went this morning.

An hour into my hunt a small, 3pt. buck moved down the hillside in front of me and fed around my stand. A few moments later two does crossed the river behind me and headed down the trail toward the buck. The buck chased them a little but he was not fired up enough to chase very hard. Then I saw antlers heading through the brush in front of me. A nice 10 headed in and chased off the 3pt. I looked at him hard, but he didn't measure up. He was likely still book, but I would have regretted it given where I was hunting.

Would you pass on this buck?

What does this buck score?

He stayed around long enough for me to shoot him several times, eventually he moved off and chased a doe. I saw several small does and fawns after that but no more bucks. The weather was cooler than yesterday, but it was still pretty hot. Hopefully it will cool down a little by the afternoon hunt.

Sunday Afternoon Hunt

The weather cooled down a little but it was still warm as I headed to my PM stand. I sat at the same stand I killed my buck in last year. The afternoon was uneventful. I had a bunch of racoons around me, they would feed around and then fight each other when they got too close. At dark a small 4pt. fed in and out.




Next - Day 3
