The ‘East Side Boys’ have been hard at it in Wisconsin from the get-go this year. They picked up a new lease close to their home turf and that is exactly where Hunter had plans of sitting Sunday evening. With extremely high winds throughout the night and into the midday hours, him and Rand decided to sit out the morning hunt and wait for the afternoon when the winds were forecasted to lay down. They slid into a virgin set around 1pm and had high hopes for the afternoon. After sitting for a few hours, a couple of fawns worked by..aside from that, it had been a slow afternoon. Shortly after 4pm, out of nowhere, a doe came hauling ass through the woods and right behind her was a good buck. They slid by out of range and the boys thought it was over. Not long after, the doe came back past them and drug the buck right back with her. The buck stopped briefly at 35 yards and Hunter let it fly! The shot was back, and they knew they would have to give the deer plenty of time to expire. They waited until dark, got down, and snuck out of there without disturbing anything. They were confident it was a fatal hit, but knew that if they bumped the deer the chances of finding him would be minimal. They played it safe and waited until the next day to get on the trail. Hunter made the call to ‘Jager’s Deer Recovery’ and they brought a tracking dog along to increase their odds of finding the buck. 22 hours and 500 yards from the shot, Hunter had his hands on a great Wisconsin buck! A great start to November for the crew. Good luck to everyone getting out in the woods!
