Like most of us, Robert Taylor is a hunter who works hard for a living, but he lives to chase whitetails during the fall of the year. Last November was no exception and Taylor made a long drive north to Kentucky to hunt one of his favorite locations. Unfortunately, two consecutive days in the same stand had produced no big buck sightings. Furthermore, to make matters worse, the weather forecast was predicting strong storms and heavy rain for the next day. At this point, Taylor had just about decided to stay in and rest during the bad weather. However, something told him to give the stand on the edge of an old reclaimed strip mine at least one more chance. This split-second decision to tough things out and stay in the woods was probably the best move Taylor had ever made as a deer hunter.
