Burb Buck

Post by mac »

For the last couple of years my son rides his bike in this woodlot located between a subdivision and a interstate. Dad , I saw a buck today while riding my bike you should go hunt there..

Well my son is in college so I figured why not.. I go into the woodlot and find his old bike trails with a lot of people sign.. I called him and he directed me to the general area of where he use to see the deer and sign. Sure enough "Bingo" I found the area and hung a stand for the following weekend.

Friday night I go to Dicks and buy some Ruttin Buck Territorial scent..

Saturday morning I heard something walking up above my location but never could see it. Heading back in for evening stand I smeared the Ruttin Buck on trees and limbs as I walk down the logging road in route to the stand...

6:30pm I pack my fanny pack to head home for the evening and then I heard what I thought was a raccoon coming down the logging road. Just Great I thought darn coons , hey wait that's a deer ... 15 seconds later he turns broadside smelling the Ruttin Stick scent that I previously rubbed on the tree... Thwack @ 22yds I watched the Luminoc go into the boiler room... As I listened It sounded as he went down quickly but I decided to back out and give him a couple of hours and wait for help to arrive.

The deer went 25 yds from a perfect heart shot.. The drag was nasty and hard but Vtfishin and I got the deer to the parking lot @ 12:30am... Long night but its nice to have one in the box this early in the year.

congrats on your deer your season has started better than mine over here in ny. Hit a 4pt Friday the 27th of sept. Ran onto posted property so I pulled out and got permission to retrieve my deer. when I got to it the coyotes already beat me to him nothing left but the head and horns sucked big time since it was my first buck with a bow. To make it better my 15yr old son took his first deer ever with a bow that Saturday evening I was one proud father at 21yards perfect shot I could not ask for more deer ran 40 yards and piled up.

Thats a great buck. The burbs hold some real nice hidden treasures for sure.
