To no surprise, North Dakota would be Mike’s first stop of the 2021 whitetail season. With 4 days to hunt, and a couple good weather days in the forecast, hopes were high. The first 2 evenings were extremely slow as far as deer movement goes. On the 3rd evening, a shooter was spotted 500 yards away working from a marsh into a standing cornfield. The guys would get out of the stand cleanly at dark only to have the cell camera let them know that the shooter walked past 10 minutes after they left. This gave Mike the confidence to return to the stand on day 4 with hopes of the buck moving just a little bit earlier. Just when they thought the night was over, they caught a glimpse of a good buck coming up the edge of the bean field. The buck worked perfectly into Mike’s shooting lane and never made it out of the bean field!
