2017 Ohio Buck

Postby Matt6506 » Wed Nov 08, 2017 7:58 am

The 2017 Ohio season has been pretty much a season of scouting for me. It's the first year that I have scouted more than I have hunted. I have really tried to analyze on what winds to hunt certain spots and also my entry and exits which has lead to less days hunting but overall more deer sightings. My season came to a head on Nov. 6th. I decided to go and hunt the pipeline that I had so much luck at seeing shooters last year in the rut. The pipeline runs on an east-west running ridge and I had a perfect north wind that would cover up my entry and allow me to set up on the south edge where I felt the bucks would be cruising. I could see alot of area so I was going to use this sit as observation. I arrived at my tree at 2pm and noticed a doe already in the pipeline about 200 yards to the west which is where in the past most of the deer activity has come from. I was standing on my second stick getting ready to attach a 3rd when I noticed another deer in the pipeline and I quickly realized it was a shooter. The buck nudged the doe and chase her farther to the west. I went ahead and attach my 3rd and 4th stick and noticed the buck coming back in sight and started working his way down the south side of the pipeline that would lead right past me. I quickly pulled up my bow and nocked an arrow and was able to take the shot at 20 yards as he pasted by. The buck died within sight as I stood halfway up my 4th stick in disbelief of what had just happened. This buck is my second largest and my second buck since joining the beast 3 years ago.
