Here's a great pre-season video that one hunter took by a bean field that will get you amped up for the coming season!
It never ceases to amaze us hunters how wily, smart, and hard-to-get big bucks can be in their natural environment. They can be the most ghost-like creatures that we chase, coming and going like the wind and never doing just we want and need them to do. Here's a great example of why we scout before the start of the season and a reminder of how hard these animals are to hunt once the season starts.
Here's the heart-pumping video:
Right in the beginning of the video he taps the camera ever so slightly and that big boy stopped, popped his head up and started looking.
He must have had the wind right in his face because that buck was looking and had his radar dish ears scanning! He looks like all of a beautiful 10-point and that's a shooter that pretty much any hunter would be happy to plug.
Good thing he had a camera ready! Otherwise that will be just another "yeah, right" story for your friends.
