East wind pays off once again! I've had some history with this guy this year. I saw him a handful of times over the summer in my buddy's bean field about 3/4 of a mile away. Most of my area was in corn this year so deer spotting was greatly limited. I didn't get any trail camera pictures of him, even at night, but I knew he was there. I saw him hard horned for the first time on November 1 in the evening. On November 2nd, I hunted the morning then had to head into the office to get some work done. I pull out of my driveway and he's standing in the middle of the road! On November 7, I decided to push back into the public land behind my house and do a hang & hunt. I had just gotten the stand hung when this guy cruised by at 10 yards when my bow was on the ground! With a east wind forecast and weather front moving in this morning, I had high hopes. I saw a ton of chasing and knew the game was on when a hot doe got chased by my stand by two small bucks. An hour later, this guy comes cruising by right on her trail. My first buck on (amateur) video too!
