Doused my drag rag with doe in heat scent and walked the 200 yards to my tree at 0530 this morning. After getting settled in my climber, I saw a huge bodied deer following my exact trail I walked in on with his nose to the ground. Although still dark I could only see 1 long spike as it walked past. From sunup until 730, 3 small bucks followed my drag rag to 20 yards. The one in the pic I grunted to within 5 yards of the tree, pretty cool.... I made a decision this year to shoot only one deer that I am after, everything else walks.
At 9am it is like someone turned the deer switch off, lol...Left to take my son to the farm to shoot the slug guns, muzzleloaders, and some clays.
