Tonight I FINALLY had a northwest wind to go hunt a special spot. I went back to a log pile that I have muzzleloader hunted out of. The main reason I hunt in the log pile is because I’m usually lazy, and don’t want to carry a blind in a half mile for a sit. The hunt started out very slow, being 60 something degrees out, but the last 20 minutes was very exciting. After sitting awhile I got bored so I decided to take a peak over the hill. To my surprise 200 yards away was a beautiful 160 inch buck with four does. After looking at him and deciding he was a shooter buck I rattled at him. I watched him with the Nikons for a little bit and here he came. I ran back to the tree line, got my Elite ready, and nestled in some tall weeds. About a minute went by and here he came over the hill. I decided not to shoot because he was too far away with the shooting and filming light I had. It was a fun encounter and it was fun to change it up and hunt off the ground. Tomorrow I am going to hunt off the ground also at a different farm, hopefully, I can connected with a bruiser!
