Story: "It was opening day of muzzleloader, and I had all of my "magical" scents along a flat on the ridge I was hunting. I had watched a doe and a fawn, but I ended up passed them up early in the morning. Around 9:30 I looked in the direction of where the deer usually come from and noticed a small tree shaking. At the base of the tree was a buck and it was a nice one. I had to watch him rub two trees for around ten minutes, so that gave me plenty of time to get nervous. As he walked below me, I picked out a spot, and when he walked into it, I let him have it. He dropped in his tracks. Next I called my buddies to come up on the 4-wheeler, so I didn't have to drag this big bruiser out."
