A New York archery buck known to its hunters as "The Goat" goes down to a great wrap-around treestand shot.
When it comes to hunting big deer, it serves the hunter well to know his quarry.
Whether you're capturing data with your trail camera, thoroughly scouting or cutting lanes and placing stands, time spent in deer cover will ultimately pay off.
I call it putting in the time, and you're about to see why it's all worth it in the end.
WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE
They never quite come from where we think they will, do they?
When you see a good amount of deer like this, you've done your scouting well.
I'll tell you this though, that was a great shot on a beautiful buck that a lot of folks might have missed!
