Story: On this morning we arrived late, but thank goodness for clouds. We jumped deer up on the way in, and that was the beginning to this crazy hunt. Sitting on the edge of a bean field one doe came out early, but didn't stick around. About 30 mins later deer just starting pouring into the field. We counted 10 does and 1 buck. The buck started chasing the does around. I told my brother it's now or never. He shot twice at about 200 yards and missed. Thinking he was out of shells we were going to get up and walk around, and he found one more shell in his pocket. We got ten yards into the field, and a doe came back out. Then they all came back out. So we laid in the field for 20 mins watching them. I used the grunt call a few times and my bro tapped me on the shoulder and said I hear something coming to our right. This buck stepped out 35yrds from us, while we were laying in the field. My brother shot his last shell and he fell. I've never been so excited in my life, and I know he was too. This is my brother's biggest buck, and his first buck in almost 10 years.
