Hunt Story

I was hunting my favorite stand that my husband has put up for me. He always told me that he put me in the best place, now I'm starting to believe him. This is the second buck I have killed this season. The other one was an 11-pointer I killed on Halloween evening. I harvested two nice does also this year for the freezer. I have watched numerous smaller bucks and does this year out of this stand, so needless to say it is my favorite stand. I was hunting this stand the evening before, and this deer right at last light ran into my food plot, and before I could get my rifle up he was gone. I decided to come back and try him again, and sure enough he came back. My husband said the colder it gets the hungrier they get, and the pretty green oats and corn tops it off—was more than he could stand. This is by far my best deer season yet, so if I'm gonna beat it next season I really got to step up my game. Can not wait to step up to the challenge.
