Story: "I had seen this buck 3 times earlier in the season and had given him up for dead. I found some reactivated scraps the previous weekend and decided to give it one last shot. The area with the scrapes doesn't have a single tree large enough for a stand. So, I set up about a hundred yards away on a trail leading to the scrapes. I hung 3 scent bombs. Around 7:30 he walked out of a thicket and straight to the scent bomb. That would be the last smell to enter his nose, because I dropped him where he stood. Heís not a monster, but you canít beat zero yards to recovery. What a great way to end the season."
