Hunt Story

Property had not been hunted in 15 years. My brother and I decided to hunt the property for the first time opening day of rifle season. My brother placed a Browning Trail Cam out on the property to obtain pictures of the deer. The deer was spotted several times on the trail cam checking a specific scrape. The deer initially came by my brother in the afternoon, but he was unable to see it clearly; the buck was with a doe. We were only hunting about 100 yards apart, so I grunted four times and then I spotted him about 80 yards away. I shot him behind the shoulder and he fell to the ground.
