Not alot to the story. We watched this buck from the start of the bear bating season until October 18th, when I harvested it. We really screwed this deer up by using Active Scrape and also Doe in Heat Scent. I could tell you what hour he would be by a certain section of woods due to making him think there was a active doe in the area. Used a Ameristep ground blind and predicted the night I would harvest him. Got to the blind at 4 pm and it was drizzly out but I knew he would be out searching for the doe as earlier in the day I refreshed the scent pads. 5:45 pm he came through and I did a perfect double lung shot on him at 38 yards. Recovery was around 25 yards from where he was standing. The particular area has 4 more decent bucks there as we have seen 2-8 pointers, a 6 and a 12 with double drop tines. The 12 will be mine next year if he survives the winter up here. Deer was harvested in Crystal, Maine.

Hey John,

Nice buck!! Luck you got one early with the lack of snow this year for tracking. I've been trying to PM you. Your box is full. Get back to me.

Mark
