    The time is finally right to head back to the stand I shot my buck out of last year. I just got permission to hunt this ground last year and it only took one sit to produce. I was half way up the tree screwing in foot pegs to hang my stand and sit when 5 decent bucks ran within 10 yards of me and mulled around! It was the first week of November. After they dispersed I hung my stand and tried calming myself down. I grunted one in an hour later and slapped a tag on him.

    Now the rut is back on and I have the next four days to hunt hard. Bucks are showing up on camera and I have a few nice ones to choose from. They're not monsters, but I take what I can get. What do you guys think this one will score?

    My guess is 3.5 years and 132"

    Possible 130, but hard to tell...nice buck. You have any others in the area?
