Awesome hunt today!

Unread postby Wlog » Tue Nov 08, 2016 11:07 am

Went way back on a public piece this morning. This is a spot I found several years ago but for some reason never really pursued it. I hunted it once and visited the spot a couple other times on scouting trips since then. I've had some decent buck sightings the last two years on this property in a different section and this spot was on my mind for some reason so I went with my gut and went in there this morning.

When I got to the tree I hunted before I went to put my first stick up and noticed it was completely hollow now. I adjusted to another tree about 5 yards away which is probably why this story isn't in the kill zone. Around 7am I seen a doe and a small buck. Then right around nine I heard a little commotion then antlers crashing together. My first thought was "great, I walked in here a mile and ended up 50 yards from another guy and he's rattling like crazy." Then I realized the sound was moving and it sounded like there was a bulldozer going through the woods. A doe explodes out of the thicket with a buck on her tail and another one close behind. They chased her all around and within 10 yards of my tree but it was the only place I had no shot. Eventually the doe got downwind of me, stopped on a dime and took off up the hill behind me.

The two bucks that were fighting both looked like 3y/o's and a 1y/o was lagging behind them. Very exciting hunt but never got a shot. If only I had risked it and sat the hollow tree I would've had a slam dunk 10 yard shot. Oh well. Way it's been going for me this year.
