New stand success

Post  ridgerunner on Wed Dec 05, 2012 9:22 pm

The bucks got the best of me this year during archery season. I just couldn't close the deal on a good one. But they did show me they liked to frequenting this one section ridge. So before rifle season started I made sure to have a stand set up there. On the first Thursday I got in stand extra early as we had 2 day old snow refroze on the ground and it was crunchy. This ridge is on a South facing slope so I was hoping the deer would be there for some morning sun. As daylight came I could see two doe bedded about 80 yards away. By 10am six buck had come by searching and checking does. That's when I decided to make it an all day sit. As the day went on those same six buck roamed around some. Then around 4 I could see a new buck moving around down in the creek bottom. After a look through the bino's I decided to shoot this one. He was running uphill at me so I waited for him to check up and let him have it, he went right down. I had this same buck at 35 yards on the last day of archery but just couldn't get a clear shot. Things worked out a little better for me this time. I like this new stand!
