It's mid-October and it is the second to last day of the early muzzleloader season. It is in the upper 50's with a steady S/SW breeze.
You have been hunting evenings on the edge of a long, irregular field of bean stubble. There is a thick timber along the west edge and a pasture along the east edge. All week, three big bucks have entered the field from the timber. But they have been arriving late and out of range. There are no suitable stand sites near their regular point of entry.
You are sitting in a ladder stand, in the NW corner of the field. Again, the wind is from the S/SW, so it is in your face as you watch the field.
Finaly, a big bodied buck enters the field from the timber, about 200 yards to the S/SW. He scans the field in a relaxed manner and truns away from you. In desperation, you gunt and then rattle at him. He looks casually over his shoulder, but continues to wander away. You consider the shot, but the wind and the distance keep your finger off the trigger.
Suddenly, a doe enters the field from the pasture side and walks steadily to the SW. The buck takes notice of her and follows her, at a steady walk, around the bend in the field and out of sight. There is 30 min. of shooting light remaining, and no other deer in the field. The wind is in your favor, and you have yet to see the other big bucks. tomorrow is the last day of the season.
What do you do?
