Indiana Deer Hunting Success

It was a nice November 5th 2009 evening in Indiana. I had just gotten off work and I was off to the woods to get in my stand. I got my gear on, sprayed down and to my stand I went. I put out a couple of scent pads on the way in. I arrived at my stand at about 4:00 pm, I set down and was getting comfortable for the night's hunt. After getting comfortable I hit my grunt and within 2 minutes I saw my buck standing in the partially picked cornfield about 80 yards from my stand.

I hit my grunt one more time and in he came. He came right to my stand broad side at 30 yards with a small hole to shoot through the thicket. I released my arrow and the deer traveled 30 yards where I recovered this buck. Total time of this hunt was about 25 minutes. I had put plenty of time in the stand prior, I don't want people to think I just walked out the first day and whacked this buck.

Great buck, great story.

Great buck, great story. Hopefully you had some doe tags so you would get to hunt more.
