So here is the hunt. This is the river stand that posted pics of 2 days ago. All along river you could see scrapes and rubs. My hunch was that the bucks were cruising this river on west wind scent checking for does. Up until this point in 3 hunts I had seen doe and small buck from this stand. And saw doe long ways off. I was planning on sitting til noon.
I had actually just called my buddy. It was windy so deer could not hear talking. Look out said "I gotta go. Big buck coming"
Buck went and started working scrapes. Grabbed my grunt call. Gave him a grunt and here he comes. He sees decoy and puffs up. Ears laid back. He is quartering too. No shot.Takes two more steps. Maaahhhh. Put the pin on the sweet spot at 15 yds.
