Hunt Story

I first got this deer on camera the second week of bow season for two nights. After that, he was gone, vanished for a month. About the first of November, he came back to a food plot and on camera every night. He only showed up during daylight hours one time at 5:02 in the evening — the only time I wasn't there. He was there about Nov. 14, rut was in and out. I hunted him evenings and mornings. He was killing me to kill him — hundreds of videos and pictures. I laid off morning hunts a couple of days. On Dec. 17 at 5:30, he made that one time mistake. At 125 yards, and a .30/06 second later, he was down, and now I could rest. You have to work extra hard, especially in December, and not give up. This had become work instead of fun. I have found you need your weapon of choice, cover scents, etc., but biggest and best help was Moultrie cameras. They don't lie. Use them. Go wifi, it's cheap, fun, and you will know when he comes, when he goes, and the moral of this story is my best buck bites the dust.
