After one of the most emotionally draining weeknds of my life I was able to get to the stand Monday afternoon for my first sit of the season. After sending a few texts, i got out my bood and set back to enjoy a quiet, relaxing but warm afternoon in the stand.
I was set up in a bottom between two clearcut ridges that feeds in to a standing corn field. I have had some pictures of some great deer using this are to include one very nice buck. After a short while i saw a spike headed toward me from the field, he work his way in slowly, i then noticed another deer behind him. An awesome looking 8 that i am not sure i have pictures of still in full velvet. Long storey short he workd to within 15 yrd, the small buck was now almost directly under me. I was able to draw, settle the pin and let the rage head eat. perfect shot and he went down withing site. I was headed back to the truck within 80 min of leaving it. so its doe patrol in ky until IL opens up in a month
