Deanna was hunting with her husband and father-in law on opening weekend of the Nebraska's firearm season. On opening day the trio caught a glimpse of the big buck as they scouted their hunting property. Instead of taking a risky shot the trio put together a plan to make the buck go where they wanted him to go; not where the buck wanted to go. Even though they knew it was a risky move, the three agreed a "push" of the area was needed to make the buck move. After choosing an open area for Deanna to take a stand and get a clear shot, her husband and father-in-law circled to the opposite side of the section of land, and began zigzagging back to Deanna in hopes the big buck would move past her. It worked.
