I told my Daddy when we left that he was so fat his belly drooped between his legs. My daddy thought I was exaggerating a little. The next week I sat in Daddy\'s stand again and saw a doe. She came out 2 times but went back in.... Read More

After about a month into the season I was already getting discouraged. I had missed one buck with my 3 year son in the stand with me and then another doe the week after. This time I was determined it had to be different. I wasnt in the stand 30 minutes and 2 bucks were on the corn.
