First gun season buck in Michigan

Unread postby whitetailassasin » Tue Nov 20, 2012 3:42 am

I've shot over 20 in michigan with my bow, but have never had a buck walk bye me during gun season. Went behind my fiance's parents house wide open cut corn field and a ditch row cut in the shape of a z going thru the middle. I figured the deer would have been pressured from all the local private land hunters. This property had not one person on it and no one hunts it, so i figured the deer(maybe a good buck) would go to where there wasn't any human scent or pressure. 20 minutes before dark this guy stepped out about 100 yards down the edge row and headed across the other edge row of it(didn't know it at the time but there were 5 does that stepped out of it). He crossed by me in the middle at around 60 yards and the .270 Savage did the rest.

Congrats! I kinda struggle with gun season too, I've only killed one 2.5 year old withI a gun. One would think if I can kill good bucks with a bow, I would eventually get a good one with a gun. I think this Friday I will kill a good one ;)

Nice buck
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.
