Kyle gets a buck to end his season
« on: January 27, 2014, 09:50:38 AM »
This year has been a tough season for our club in south Alabama. We didn't hunt a lot early part of the season either due to crappy hunting weather or busy with other things. We have been able to do a little more after the first of the year, but we had not been seeing much deer movement. Last weekend we saw the deer movement really pick up, and had a good buck come in at about 40 - 50 yards, but he never would step out in the open for a good clean shot. We went back to that same location this past weekend and had 3 different bucks come in. The first buck I believe was the same good buck we saw last weekend, but he was running a doe full speed. He crossed our long narrow field twice, but was way to fast to get off a shot. Another buck and doe came in a few minutes later, but again he saying mostly hidden by brush. It wasn't long that the third buck came in alone, looking for some does. He stayed in the field long enough for Kyle to get off a shot. The deer only went about 10 yards, so it was an easy tracking job. He was pumped.

Congrats to Kyle on the nice buck.  One trick I have used a couple of times, is to grunt at a buck when he's moving.  If he hears you, more often than not, he'll stop and look.  Just may give you the seconds you need to get a shot off.  Just make sure you're ready to shoot, before you grunt.  Of course, if he's 100 yds away, I don't think grunting would help.  I did see a video where a hunter actually screamed at a buck "Stop!", and his son shot it with a bow.

Here is a little more detail to the story. When this buck stepped out, he immediately started walking away from us, and we had no broadside shot. I tried grunting at him, but all he would do is stop and turn his head and neck around to look. He would not turn his body broadside. Finally he turned to go into the woods and stopped long enough for us to get a shot.
