It was a cold November morning in South Georgia. I pulled up to the woods and got out of my truck, eagerly anticipating a great hunt ahead. Mid November in Georgia means the rut and the rut was wide open. I gathered all my gear together and got prepped to head to the stand. After getting all my gear in order, I sprayed down with Lethal before heading to my stand. I walked in and climbed into my set well before daylight. I watched as the woods awoke around me. Each passing moment could be the second that a shooter buck could appear from the hardwood bottom in front of me.
The mornings calm was shattered by the sounds of a buck chasing a doe. The doe darted and dashed through the thick woods with a huge 10 point right on her heals. The doe ran right up to the stand and paused in a small thicket, just to the right of my stand. With my heart pounding, I watched in amazement at this massive buck ran straight to me. Nose to the ground, he made his way down the drain trailing his doe. At 30 yards I couldn’t wait any longer. I steadied my 30-.06 and squeezed the trigger.
The huge buck hit the ground, never knowing what hit him. Once on the ground, I knew that this monster buck was the deer that we had given the name “Ghost”. This great deer had winded me a year earlier during a bow season hunt and had eluded us for the remainder of the season. This was not to be the case this morning. Lethal had done its job. This 150 class buck never knew that I was in the world.
You have enough to worry about when the moment of truth comes; don’t let scent control be one of them. That’s why the Backwoods Life crew is always certain and always Lethal!
