Story: Well I don't usually shoot small bucks but this was a crazy horned spike and need to be outta the gene pool, he has 3 spikes on one side and 2 on the other side. The hunt went like this it was cold that morning but I stuck it out till about 11:15 and climbed down, as I was packing my climbing stand up I heard this buck come off the ridge in front of me, so I grabbed my bow and got ready, we had a few stair downs but he could never figure out what I was and never could smell me, so he continued to browse on acorns and twigs, finally he gave me a shot at 8 yards. Scent control is so important cause the wind was blowing right to him from me.
