I managed a decent buck this morning. He came out right at first light and was focused on my doe decoy. He gave me an eight yard shot that I just could not pass up. I hit him a shade high but got his femoral artery and one lung. He ran no more than 75 yards and died in the field I was hunting. I went back to the truck to unload some gear and I was taking pictures by 7:25. This was the biggest buck I've seen this year and the buck activity has been increasing. Good luck to the rest of you guys.

Congrats! Looks like a nice buck!

Heading down to C. Illinois Tuesday. From what I'm hearing the bucks are just starting to chase a bit, should be hot and heavy come next week. Looking forward to a good hunt. We have a Giant 8 point start showing up about a month ago. He's go some cuts on his neck from fighting and another buck that was a shoot but has two tines broken off. I think the fighting has really started.

Also, good to see you had luck with the decoy. We have a couple but never really had any luck with the Doe decoy. Any tricks you would like to share?

He was swollen a little bit but there was a bunch of junk on the base of his antlers. I'm not sure if it matters but I did spray the buck bomb "Doe in Estrus" when I went out.

The doe decoy can be hit or miss. I think the does are very weary and will spook easily when they see it. However the bucks like to investigate and I've actually seen one try to breed her. I like using a decoy sometimes to take the focus off of me when they come out of the woods. I'm hunting just outside of the path that they enter the field but its just lack of options.

Congrats on the nice buck. That's what I call a quick and easy time on the stand. Awesome.
