Set up in my tree stand at seven in the morning 11/15/2011. Had some deer sent out and was over looking a steam with a huge opening! Could hear some movement behind me on the road. He circled to my left of the tree line I could hear a branch snap. It was seven thrifty at that point and time to use my doe bleat call.
I've seen buck lure work a lot of times, they will come on the dead run to it but I was never ready and missed a lot of chances at deer. Makes me mad to think about. Anyway I think what happened this time, is he smelled my buck lure and it put him in position. So I tried a bleat call and saw a flash of brown. He came out into my opening about six five yards out and I dropped him in one shot. Hit him walking with my .35 Marlin in the lungs, a nice ten point buck. A happy day out in the woods.
