I last hunted this past Sunday evening, out of the same treestand I’d seen Six Shooter from earlier this year. Over the course of the evening sit I saw a good number of does, but not a single buck. Seems like I was just there a day early! A few days after that hunt I drove my truck out to the trailcam on the edge of the field late at night and pulled the card. What did I see? Several bucks munching on the BB2 in front of my camera in broad daylight! So that being said, hopefully this weekend I can be on stand at the right time and maybe one of the better bucks on my property will make the fateful mistake of stepping out.
I certainly hope you’re all seeing some good bucks and maybe even putting one down on the ground. Make sure to shoot us an email if you do, we’d love to share your story.
