On November 30, last day of the season, I decided to get in a quick hunt before work. It was 5 degrees fahrenheit with a breeze. I’d been in the stand for an hour and half and was frozen.
Five minutes before leaving my stand I saw a buck at 100-yards. I attempted everything I knew to bring him in — bleats, grunts, and light rattling. At 200 plus yards I spotted him again, and as a last ditch effort, gave a loud long grunt along with some light rattling. It worked! He weaved his way through some willows towards my stand. At 30 yards he turned broadside and I was able to make a great shot!
I shoot a 04 hoyt Ultra Tec G5 montec, use broadheads easton powerflight arrows, and my grunt call is a quaker boy which I had changed from a doe bleat that morning by moving an o-ring.
