Here is the buck Mr. Robert Allen (80 years young at the time) took by misting the foliage “nose high to a deer” on his way to his stand with “Doe Preorbital”.
The buck hit the scent trail “downwind” of Mr. Allen’s ground blind about 70 yards away and proceeded to “follow” it all the way up to the point that Mr. Allen pulled the trigger on his .50 cal muzzleloader and dropped the deer in his tracks…at 30 yards from the ground blind.
Mr. Allen had misted all the way to his ground blind and the deer “just kept comin’ and comin’ until I thought it was gonna get in the blind with me.” True statement;)
The “next day” picture is of Mr. Allen and his beautiful buck…along with “Bucky”…who I found wandering in the woods of Hickman Co. and now lives with my beautiful Mother…and is over 80 lbs!
I hope you enjoyed the story…and more pics are on the way.
Thank you again…
