Success during rifle seasonContributors to this thread:
Like most states, archery and general (other than archery) deer seasons openers are split. I hunted this buck in the middle of rifle season at a astonishing 17 yards. I hunt where firearms are prohibited but hunting is not. I also put hours in scouting and prepping. I had little motivation to go out for an evening hunt. My Buddy Norman had a close encounter so was adamant about hunting the evening. On a whim I decided to go. Upon arriving I vacillated between hunting my blind or not. We arrived around 6pm. By 6:30 i was settled in my blind. Barely 15 mins later this buck trots and gives me a broadside 17 yard shot. I avoid the crowds and hype. I enjoy the solitude, deer or no deer.
