Consequently, Parrish decided to hang a treestand overlooking a worn trail leading to the bean field. In most cases, as the season progresses, a lot of mature bucks will not enter an open area food source until just before dusk or immediately after dark. Parrish's setup was back in the cover and gave him the opportunity to connect with the buck before good shooting light ran out. Finally, all of the pieces to the puzzle came together when the buck stepped into a cleared shooting lane just below his stand. After all of his hard work, a clean double-lung shot placed this 172-class monster on the ground. There is no question that doing your homework and spending time in the woods is really the magic formula for success. Congratulations, Chris on an amazing early-season buck that was taken the right way.
