Taking a big buck
An overgrown fenceline ran through the little woodlot, so Kelso hung a stand on each side. The next challenge was to wait out the buck. Kelso and his client client sat dark to dark for two days without seeing a deer. Finally, a half hour after daybreak on the third day, the buck got out of his bed and walked down the fenceline, and the client shot him at 15 yards.
Senior Deputy Editor of Field & Stream Colin Kearns: “We have these experts who have had success stories about deer they have shot in the late-season and they explain their tactics for how they shot that deer in the late season whether it is setting your stand by a variety of food plots or organizing a specific type of drive or setting a blind up along a fence line. These are all tactics that are specific to big deer in the very late season.
