On Oct. 27, D&DH managing editor Jake Edson returned to the staff food plot with designer Dusty Reid and a video camera. The pair watched as a breeding frenzy exploded in the woods around the plot.
Up to eight bucks converged on a doe that must be coming very close to estrus. Then,
one large-bodied 3-year-old staked a claim to the food plot, centering himself in
the field and snort-wheezing every few minutes to assert his status.
Unfortunately, the only buck that came in range of Reid’s bow was a 2-year-old. With
breeding activity ramping up, the duo plan to spend a lot more time around the plot
Here’s that 2-yo they saw last night.
