"I got in the stand around 2 p.m. and began seeing deer immediately. The deer density in this area is extremely high and seeing 20 deer in an evening hunt is common. I saw mostly young bucks cruising and groups of does and fawns. Finally, about 15 minutes before dark, the buck I'd been waiting for snapped a twig behind me sneaking through the timber like a ghost. He came into a shooting lane perfectly broadside, and I let him have it right behind the shoulder. He only went about 120 yards before expiring."
