Story: "I took the hour and a half walk to my stand in the morning to find the seat of my brand new treestand torn out by a bear. I figured I could still climb up and stand up for a couple hours anyway. It was windy that morning and I was debating on whether I should stay or go. At 8:30 a doe came blasting down the ridge with a buck not far behind her. They both disappeared into a laurel thicket about 80 yards away. I started hitting "The can" a few times and within a few mins he came heading my direction into the clearcut. I picked a hole through the thick brush and pulled off the shot before he disappeared into the clearbutt. This was my last tag for a Unit B buck and it feels great having harvested him off of public land."
