I hope to some day have the patience (and whitetail encounters) that longtime Deer & Deer Hunting contributor Richard P. Smith has had during his many years in the woods. Richard has been providing fellow Stump Sitters with fascinating insights on mature behavior since the magazine’s inception in 1977.
This video clip from Saskatchewan is no exception. Richard filmed this deer hunting video in Canada last November while hunting with Proudfoot Creek Outfitters. Believe it or not, he passed on shooting this Booner buck during the first day of his hunt. After reviewing the footage that evening, he returned to the same stand the next day and decided to pull the trigger on his Remington .30-06.
As they say, hindsight is 20/20. The question for today, is: Could you pass up the biggest deer of your life in hope of something bigger showing up? Also, what do you think this buck grosses on the B&C scoring system? I happen to know the answer, and will share that in a future post!
