Story: I saw this buck opening day of muzzleloader season. The buck was in hot pursuit of a Doe. Due to the cover they came through I could only watch as the buck with his nose to the ground chased the Doe up and over a ridge. After doing some more scouting, I located what I thought was a hot scrape. Opening day of gun season I returned to that location about 70 yards from the scrape down wind from a thicket. From my climbing stand, still before daylight I heard the buck coming down the ridge through the thicket. After day break I saw the buck 20 yards from the scrape. Another 10 minutes went by before he presented a clear shot. He ran about 25 yards.
