Time of Kill: 4:15
Location Details:Birnamwood, Wisconsin
Kill Type: Whitetail
It was Monday Morning and i really wanted to be in my treestand because the rut was in full swing in Wisconsin. I wasn’t able to hunt because the farmer whos land I hunt had asked me to help spread manure on his field. As I was driving the tractor on a trail through a patch woods, I happened to see a doe only 20 yards of the tractor trail with a nice tall rack buck at her side. All I could do was stare in awe as they just watched me drive by. Hoping he would stick around I returned to a Stand close to the area where I saw the buck. After passing up two small bucks I decided to use my grunt call. One sequence of grunts and I had a shooter buck come charging out of the swamp! He walked 10 yards in front of me and I let the arrow fly. I didnt get a good look at him but after a short trailing job I found my buck and it just happened to be that buck I had seen that morning while I was on the tractor. He was a massive 7pt with a 16.5 inch spread and dressed out at 200lbs. What an awesome day in the woods!
